Cars With the Most Satisfied Owners

August 27, 2015

When purchasing a new vehicle, car buyers should look to current owners for insight into how satisfied they are with their purchase, what issues -- if any -- they've had with their vehicle, and whether they would purchase it again.

AutoPacific recently identified the winners of its 2015 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards. This year's top brand winners include Tesla for the premium brand category and GMC for the popular brand category. And another big winner was the Kia K900, which set an all-time high and won AutoPacific's President's Award.

Results of the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are based on survey responses from more than 66,000 car owners of new 2015 model year cars and light trucks to measure how satisfied they are with their vehicles. Below is a look at all of this year's winners.

And if you're in the market for a vehicle, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
