Honda Ridgeline and Toyota Tundra Rated Most Satisfying Pickups in Consumer Reports Owner Survey.
Domestic Midsize and Compacts Ranked Least Satisfying
Consumer Reports (CR) has published the results of its Annual Car Satisfaction Owner Survey and the Honda Ridgeline and Toyota Tundra have both been rated with scores that make them the 'Most Satisfying' pickups, according to CR's criteria.
CR determined the results from a questionnaire sent to subscribers asking if they would buy the car or truck they currently own again, considering its price, performance, comfort, reliability, and enjoyment. The Most Satisfying vehicles are those where at least 80-percent of owners said they would definitely buy or lease the vehicle again.
The V6 powered Honda Ridgeline crossover was the highest ranked truck in the survey, followed by the eight cylinder version of the Toyota Tundra.
The 'Least Satisfying' trucks - all domestic brand compact and midsize haulers, including the Chevrolet Colorado, Dodge Dakota, Ford Ranger, and GMC Canyon. The Mazda B-Series, a twin of the Ranger, also placed in the least satisfying group. They were determined to be those where less than 50-percent of owners said they would buy or lease them again.
