The New Car Market: 12 Cars Customers Love So Much They Will Buy Again

Consumer Reports has ranked what it considers the most satisfying car by asking one key question: Would you buy or rent that car again if given the chance?

The survey surveyed 300,000 owners of cars, SUVs, trucks, and vans and may help you decide if you're in the market for a new car.

Consumer Reports noted, "Practical, reliable vehicles aren't as valued as Peacocks that promise luxury, fuel and energy efficiency (gas or electric), or pulse-quick performance—and they deliver."

"Case in point: Our latest survey once again showed that luxury cars and entry-level SUVs are among the least satisfying vehicles to own because they fail to deliver on the luxury promise," she added.

Here are the car owners would buy again:

Chevrolet Corvette, with 94% of customers saying they would happily buy it again. "For the second year in a row, the Chevrolet Corvette is the most satisfying car in our survey. According to Consumer Reports, it's unabashedly a performance sports car and, with its redesign for 2020, could easily be mistaken for a Ferrari or a Lamborghini.

Porsche 911 by 90%.

Seven cars share the third spot, with 88 percent of customers saying they would be happy to buy them again: Kia Telluride, Rivian R1T, Ford Maverick Hybrid, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Polestar 2, Subaru BRZ, and Toyota GR86.

Toyota RAV4 Prime 87%.

Mazda MX-5 Miata and Dodge Challenger are tied at 86%.

On the other hand, here are car owners saying they'll never buy them again, according to Consumer Reports:

The Kia Forte and Nissan Altima were the least satisfied, at 51 percent.

Nissan Kiksum by 49%.

Volkswagen Taos and Kia Seltos, both with 48%.

Jeep Compass.

Mercedes-Benz GLA.

Infiniti QX50 by 40%.

Mercedes-Benz GLB by 39%.

Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport by 38%.

Another point made by Consumer Reports is that hybrid and plug-in models generally score high satisfaction scores.

"In this survey, nearly every hybrid model outperformed its conventional cousin," Jake Fisher, senior director of automotive testing at Consumer Reports, said in the survey. "We've found that hybrids often save buyers money through fuel economy superior to conventional versions, but they can also deliver a better driving experience."
