Consumer Reports surveys have shown the Toyota Prius to be the most satisfying car, as told by 92% of Prius owners who would definitely consider buying another. General Motors forgotten minivan trio did very poorly, with just a third of respondents suggesting they would want another Terraza, Relay, or Uplander. They won’t be given the chance – what’s left of those vans is indeed all that’s left of their future existence.

Other standouts included the six-cylinder Ford Fusion and the Saturn Aura, which along with the Prius and Camry Hybrid are the top four most satisfying ‘family cars’. Four GM vehicles ranked at the bottom of the list, along with two Chrysler-built vehicles and the Mazda B-series; really just a Ford Ranger. Chevrolet’s Corvette, Porsche’s Boxster as well as the VW GTI, Ford Mustang GT, and Audi S4 were all sporty vehicles which owners would want to buy again.
