There was a time in the not so distant past, when the quality of American cars—once the envy of the entire global automotive industry—had fallen so far behind the rest of the world’s autos American consumers often felt the need to rationalize owning an American car.
The phrase; “Yes, it’s American, but I figure we need to do all we can to help the economy, right?” became a familiar refrain.
Happily, those days are behind us, as now a number of American cars routinely score very highly in customer satisfaction surveys.
We recently partnered with AutoPacific to survey 75,000 new car buyers who were within their first three months of ownership to determine their overall satisfaction with the vehicles they’d purchased. The results were based solely on owner input and the resulting measure of owner satisfaction demonstrated.
Examining the findings revealed 7 great American cars that are made in the United States among the top-rated models.
Further, each one of the traditional American manufacturers were represented.
As proof the American auto industry is indeed once again in the hunt, the lauded vehicles span nearly the entire spectrum of the automotive marketplace. The winning models range from subcompact through luxury cars, in addition to crossovers, SUVs, and of course, the pickup truck which consistently holds the title of the best selling vehicle of any kind in America.
