Cars With the Best Customer Satisfaction
March 21, 2013When it comes to customer service, car buyers say the best is GMC for mass market brands and Lexus for luxury brands, according to the recently released J.D. Power and Associates 2013 U.S. Customer Service Index (CSI) Study.
The study found that overall customer satisfaction with service at a dealer facility has increased slightly from last year, which is good news. For mass market brands, GMC came out on top with a CSI score of 819, followed closely by MINI (810), Buick (809), Chevrolet (806) and Volkswagen (804).
For luxury brands, Lexus dominated for the fifth year in a row with a CSI score of 862, followed by Cadillac (858), Jaguar (856), Acura (852) and Infiniti (848).
Before you buy any new car, I recommend using the free RydeShopper to get the biggest savings and see what local dealers are willing to offer.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides 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.
