2008’s most satisfying cars

December 23rd, 2008

Consumer Reports has just released their list of 2008’s most satisfying cars, and the results aren’t what I would have guessed! 

Topping the list (for the 5th year in a row so I guess that’s not TOO surprising!) is the:

Toyota Prius

2008-prius-hybrid-8

Ninety three percent of owners said they’d buy or lease another one.

A very close second was:

Chevrolet Corvette Z06

2008z06corvette

Yes, more people would buy their Prius again than would buy their Z06 again. Still, 92 percent of owners wouldn’t think twice about plunking down the cash for this American gem of a car that can beat a 911 Carerra and a Jaguar XK8 to 60. 

And coming in third…

MINI Cooper Clubman

Hey, it’s kinda like a Suburban. Only smaller. And German. 

At the other end of the list is some sobering news: 20 of the 23 least satisfying vehicles were American. 

At the very bottom is the Jeep Commander, preceded by the Chevy Equinox, the Chevy Colorado, and the GMC Canyon

Thank goodness Chevy still makes the Corvette!

What car do you drive, and would you buy it again?
