In an article from the Detroit Free Press, the Senior Director of the testing group, David Champion, commented that “this is a case where hybrids really work." Coming in second place was the Chevrolet Corvette amongst a list of 45 most satisfying vehicles. Other noticeable mentions included the Ford Mustang, Pontiac Solstice, Dodge Charger, Buick Lucerne, Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon. However, Japanese automakers Toyota and Honda still dominated the list.
At the other end of the scale, pickups, SUVs and minivans were rated as the least satisfying with 26 out of 31 of these vehicles coming from the American carmakers.
