Sportscars, Hybrids Dominate List Of Most Satisfying Cars To Own

Would you buy the same car again that you’re driving now? That’s the single defining question behind the annual Consumer Reports list of Most Satisfying and Least Satisfying cars.

Consumer Reports is an American non-profit consumer organization dedicated to independent product testing, consumer-oriented research, and consumer advocacy.

In order to come up with the ranking, Consumer Reports asked its members a series of questions and used analysis to measure the current state of vehicle ownership satisfaction after a two-to-three year ownership period. Couple that with their very own test and reliability ratings, they’ve come up with this list.

The percentages indicated here measure the current state of vehicle owner satisfaction.
