How Does Nissan Rank in Vehicle Satisfaction?
Any automotive manufacturer can say whatever they want about a vehicle. It could be one of the worst vehicles in the past 50 years, but that brand’s marketing department certainly won’t make it seem so. To ensure consumers get a clear picture of what vehicles stand above the rest, it’s important to rely on third-party automotive awards.
The AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA) are exactly what we’re talking about, and in August 2019, Nissan came up big. In fact, for 3 straight years, Nissan received the most category honors of any brand.
These best-in-class wins from the AutoPacific VSAs included the 5-time winning Murano, which reigned supreme in the Premium Mid-Size Crossover SUV category, as well as the 4-time winning Maxima in the Luxury Mid-Size Car category.
More of the most satisfying vehicles included the Rogue and Altima, earning their places atop the Premium Mid-Size Crossover SUV and Mid-Size Car categories, respectively. Lastly, the king of SUVs, the 8-passenger Armada, took the top spot in the Large SUV category.
The VSA awards look at 32 vehicle attributes that include everything from performance to design. Most importantly, however, there isn’t just some panel of judges making these decisions. Instead, the winning vehicles are selected based on responses from 50,000 new vehicle owners to get a true feel for owner satisfaction with their new vehicle.
