Chevy Volt Most Loved Car For Second Straight Year
Considering the high cost of gas it’s not surprising that fuel efficient hybrids are picking up in popularity. To prove the point, Reuters is reporting that a Consumer Reports survey has shown that the Chevy Volt hybrid car is tops in owner satisfaction for the second straight year. Just how popular might surprise you.
Ninety-two percent of Volt owners surveyed by the influential consumer magazine said they would definitely buy the Volt again, earning the electric car the top ranking. Last year, 93 percent of respondents said they would buy the car again.
Although expensive–about $40 grand–it does receive a $7,500 federal tax credit and with mileage projected at 40 miles per charge before switching over to gas it can really be a money saver in the long run. As for the lowest rated in customer satisfaction.
The redesigned Nissan Versa small car had the lowest score, with fewer than half of its owners saying they would definitely buy it again. Other low scorers included the V6-engine versions of GM’s Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, and the Nissan Armada, Suzuki SX4 and Mitsubishi Outlander SUVs.
