The Tesla Model 3 has topped a Consumer Reports survey of how happy car buyers are with the car they own.
Consumer Reports said it collected survey data from an annual survey on more than half a million vehicles. “Our subscribers provide great insights into their satisfaction by answering one simple question: If they had it to do all over again, would they definitely buy or lease the same model?” the report says. “In addition, respondents also rate their cars in six categories: driving experience, comfort, value, styling, audio, and climate systems.”
Consumer Reports previously named the Model 3 as its top-rated luxury compact car. The endorsement came after the the publication previously would not recommend the vehicle. However, Tesla made improvements to the car’s brakes via an over-the-air update that satisfied the Consumer Reports reviewers.
Tesla, and the all-electric vehicle category in general, was well represented on the satisfaction list, as its Model S was fifth in the rankings.and the Chevy Bolt EV was eighth.
