AutoPacific Announces 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards: Nissan Has Most Winning Vehicles

Cornwall Nissan

NORTH TUSTIN, Calif., Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AutoPacific today announced the 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Award (VSA) winners. Now in its 23rd year, the VSAs identify the most satisfying vehicles in the market based on responses from over 50,000 new car and light truck owners.

AutoPacific's Vehicle Satisfaction Awards objectively measure owner satisfaction with 32 separate attributes ranging from driving performance to seating comfort and interior design. Ratings are based solely on owner input. "For 23 years, AutoPacific has been providing true unbiased insight into which vehicles are giving their owners the most satisfying experience," says AutoPacific president George Peterson. Unique in the industry, VSAs include importance ratings in the VSA score calculation, resulting in scores that represent a complete view of the ownership experience.


Nissan Claims Most Wins

For the third year in a row, Nissan has the most winning vehicles, this year with six wins: Maxima, Altima, Armada, Murano and Rogue for Nissan and Q60 for Infiniti. The Murano (5th year in a row) and Maxima (4th year in a row) continue to be unbeatable since their redesigns entered the market in 2015 and 2016, respectively. "Even with new competition this year in the all-new Subaru Ascent, Volkswagen Atlas and Lexus ES, the Murano and Maxima came out on top," said Peterson.
