Consumer Reports is crunching the numbers from its annual owner-satisfaction survey, and part of that process is finding out how attached drivers are to their cars. CR simply asks readers of models up to three years old if they would buy the same vehicle again in light of their entire ownership experience, and tallies the results. After looking at the responses for about 350,000 vehicles, it turns out that people really love a certain California-built, electrically powered luxury sedan.

That’s right, this year’s the overall winner was the Tesla Model S with a whopping 98 per cent of owners saying they would purchase another one (the Model S also won this award last year, with 99 per cent satisfaction). The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray came in a close second with 95 per cent of drivers hoping to park another one in their garage.

A few models weren’t quite so favoured, though. The Nissan Versa Sedan was the least loved model among its owners; a mere 42 per cent said that they would purchase another. The aging Jeep Compass didn’t do much better, with just 43 per cent of drivers willing to buy the softroader again.

On average, about 70 per cent of owners say they would buy their car again, and only four cars ranked below 50 per cent in CR’s findings. Check out the video above to see some of the winners and losers in a few of CR’s categories. If you’re a subscriber, you can check out the full list on its website.
