Volt Owner Satisfaction Rating Climbs- Consumer Reports

3765 Views 13 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  srs5694
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.

Model S 94
Model X 92
Miata 91
Volt 90
911 90
Corvette 90
Camaro 89
Prius 88
Macan 87
Leaf 65

First-year production runs tend to be problematic. However, a very short 2016 production year made the Volt stats even worse in my opinion. The norm is that first year production runs tend to improve as assembly problems are debugged - with stats following production improvement as the year progresses. However, 2016 production year was so short that only the first, and most problematic, months bear in the statistics.

You can get a feel for Volt gen2 problems by eyeing the stickies and posts in this forum section:

Buy a 2017 model with a recent production date, if you want to distance yourself from Volt gen2 production start-up woes.
