What about owner satisfaction after 3 years instead of 3 months? I'd rather be a bit less satisfied at 90 days and more satisfied at 3 years.

Chevy, Sonic, Volt, Avalanche; Ford, Flex, Expedition; Dodge, Charger, Challenger; Audi A8; Porsche? Toyota, Honda, Nissan below industry average. JD Power study?
*Use Consumer Reports for a better evaluation of vehicles and their 'real ratings.'
My vehicle runs good, its paid for, gets decent MPG and I will Not be replacing it with anything else! I will drive my current vehicle into the ground before buying anything new, used, EV, Inbred, diesel, hydrogen, alternative fuel, CNG, concept or 3 Chevy models, Ford, Dodge, etc.
With 'coming out of the closet' Barry's lousy, smoke and mirrors, lack of jobs, dog and pony show and in the crapper economy, who can afford to buy a new vehicle! Barry can spin the jobs numbers so they look much better than what they really are, he's a smooooth talker if there ever was one!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Interesting. The Avalanche is ending production next year and the Volt continues to be one of the lowest selling vehicles they make. I certainly would never buy one.

It's a consumer survey asking them if they think they made the right buying choice. I'm not saying the survey is wrong but I like to make decisions based on something other than "do you feel good about your purchase"
