Consumer Reports has updated their owner satisfaction ratings.
The score is simply the percentage of survey respondents who answered "definitely yes" to the question: "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?" I was one of them.
Note that this is not the same as asking what car or brand you plan to buy next. The media often get that confused.
The Volt is up a bit from 85 last year. You're about as likely to be happy with a Volt as you are with a Miata, 911 or Corvette.

I agree CR's conclusions have to be taken with a heavy dose of skepticism, but what is a better source for this kind of information? The "Car magazines" are far worse. Most websites I have seen appear to be similar to the car magazines.
One flaw I believe exists with CR car reports is a failure to consider the price of the car. They might compare two midsize sedans, one costing $35K and the other costing $28K. They will correctly note that the $35K car is better. But I already could have guessed that. Which one is a better value?
