Consumer Reports‘Annual satisfaction survey results are often cited by automakers whose entry tops the list of “ inflated’ ‘. But there is also a dark side to this ranking. Below, in scum of the listWe found cars that most owners said they wouldn’t buy again, and the list is dominated by small and mid-size SUVs that have gradually replaced price-oriented sedans and hatchbacks. cheap.
These 10 new car models were rated by CR subscribers, who were asked if they would make a purchase again under the same circumstances with the benefit of insight, which means it’s not just about a simple measure of brand or model loyalty. The sheer number of small SUVs on this list suggests that owners may not be satisfied with “huge” options that aren’t really big. Even the most satisfying car on this list, Kia Forte, won just over 47% of owners. For those in #first and #2 (we won’t damage them for you), the number of owners who will buy back the same vehicle is reduced to less than 1 in 3. Oops.
So without further ado, here it is: 10 new car to own in the United States.
10 – Kia Forte
Kia’s the second minifigure is due to upgradeand customers seem to have noticed. We appreciate its enthusiast-friendly GT Line and GT offerings, but customers don’t seem to treat it like an everyday car.
9 – Cadillac XT4
We have our own doubts about XT4its value proposition, and buyers seem to find it lacking, too. It’s not particularly enjoyable to drive, the interior is a bit disappointing, and it’s not priced as high as we would have liked. Maybe the secret to success lies in tweaking that formula.
8 – Jeep Renegade
The Jeep Renegade Always a hatchback in disguise, and the first all-wheel drive models with a manual transmission were fun on a tight road, but that combination was no longer offered in many years. What remains is a Fiat 5 doors with one Jeep car badge, and that doesn’t seem to pose a problem to the current owners.
7 – Jeep Compass
We say “see above”, but that doesn’t seem fair. The Limit to handle Renegade’s Dimensional shortcomings, but we think the lack of powertrain variety combined with a lazy nine-speed transmission contributes to owner dissatisfaction. Updating, and Plug-in hybrid 4xe of Europe can finally make its way.
6 – Infiniti QX50
Nissan and Infiniti had a tough performance on this list, with three cars appearing between them. ONE QX55 model “coupe” has just been added to the line and QX50 has received several content updates for 2022, but not much else is visible on the horizon for Infiniti’s small SUV.
5 – Nissan Rogue Sport
Before the regular Rogue redesign, Rogue Sport It actually has some advantages over its bigger brother in terms of refinement and styling. The fact that Rogue didn’t make this list speaks volumes about the scope of its redesign, but it doesn’t help Rogue Sport’s cause any.
4 – Infiniti Q50
3 – Chevy Trax
One problem first Automatic loggerm call Trax as a “casual little pea” is not a particularly good value and offers a subpar driving experience. Looks like the buyer noticed.
2 – Ford EcoSport
Ford’s subcompact stop was a long time coming when it hit US shores in 2017, and things haven’t improved since. This fleet of rental car staples is cheap for a reason. To be honest, we’re surprised at EcoSport did not take first place in this “contest” with a substantial profit and this may be the last chance to do so, because Ford will remove the model from the US lineup this year. Good puzzle.
1 – Toyota C-HR
Toyota is no stranger to topping the Consumer Reports list, but we doubt it’s an honor that they’ll be entering the competition any time soon. The C-HR was originally considered one of the worst SUV impersonators on the market as it didn’t have all-wheel drive even as an option. The lack of cargo space (thanks in no small part to the sporty compact hatchback) probably doesn’t help. We were surprised that the C-HR overpowered the EcoSport, but we don’t that surprised. CR says only 29% of buyers will reactivate the tiny Toyota.
