Chevy Volt Owners Love Their Cars Most, 92% Would Buy Again



 
Perhaps it’s the ridiculous miles per gallon and fuel/financial savings. Perhaps it’s the tremendous performance. Perhaps it’s the option to use the car as back-up power. Perhaps it’s the fact that you can drive the car in electric mode the large majority of the time but still have the ability to drive long distances without needing to plug in for hours.

Whatever it is, the Chevy Volt is the car with the highest user satisfaction rating in Consumer Reports… for the second year in a row. Last year, 93% of owners said they’d buy the vehicle again. This year, the figure is about the same at 92%.

As Chris DeMorro of Gas2 notes, efficient electric and hybrid-electric vehicles did quite well, with almost all the rest of the consumer satisfaction leaders being luxury cars:

“Of the 44 models that rated highest among consumers, 10 were fuel-efficient models including the Toyota Prius, Prius C, and Camry Hybrid. The Nissan Leaf also had a high rating, though the remaining 34 vehicles were mostly luxury or sports cars.”

    I’d like to hear what the other 8% had to say.

    Wrong size car for them? Did they get a lemon? Next time going for an EV?
