Toyota C-HR, Ford EcoSport Owners Regret Buying Their Cars

Consumer Reports analyzed data from their latest member survey to determine which vehicles caused the most regret to its owners. The owner satisfaction score—based on whether owners say they would definitely buy the same car again if given the choice—measures whether a car has lived up to expectations. Consumer Reports then combines this with their editorial test ratings and reliability.

The survey covered 2022 model year vehicles on their experiences with more than 300,000 vehicles in the United States.

The least satisfying vehicle to own is the Toyota C-HR with only 29 percent of respondents saying that they’re willing to buy the model again. This is followed by the Ford EcoSport at 30 percent and the Chevrolet Trax at 37 percent.

Consumer Reports paints a dismal picture on the C-HR scoring just 43 out of 100 in value. It also scores poorly in reliability and a poor driving experience. Meanwhile, the EcoSport was scorned for its unreliability and poor comfort. The Trax, scored well when it comes to reliability, but got a low score in just about everything else (comfort is 33 out of 100, for example).

On the flipside, the most satisfying car to own, according to Consumer Reports, is the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray—a whopping 97 percent say they’re willing to buy the same model again. This is followed by the Mazda MX-5 at 89 percent and the Kia Telluride and Ford Mustang Mach-E at 87 percent.

Corvette owners gave the iconic sports car a 98 out of 100 rating for the driving experience. Additional owner satisfaction measurements include comfort (91 out of 100), value (84 out of 100), and styling (98 out of 100).

  1. Where does the Mazda CX5 fall in the list?

  2. Looks like Americans were disappointed in getting sub-compact SUVs. Probably realized it's too small and slow for their needs after purchasing those.

  3. I thought Toyotas were reliable kuno. Lulz. That's a global model na ha, pano pa yung mga Turd World crapola na binibenta nila dito na never heard sa US like the Vios, Rush, Avanza, Innova, Fortuner. Ewwness.

    1. You are so arrogant. Vehicles serve different functions based on what an individual or a family can afford.
