Consumer Reports (CR) has a bit of a love-hate relationship when it comes to Tesla.
The hate part usually comes from its editors and staff. One of the most glaring examples of this was in April when they claimed to have “easily tricked” Autopilot to drive without someone behind the wheel.
Turns out it wasn’t that easy, and they didn’t perform the same test on other vehicles with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) to see if they could be similarly tricked.
The love part typically comes from their membership surveys, which regularly rank Tesla as the best.
Their membership has done it again, this time voting the Tesla Model 3 as the most satisfying car on the market.
In a survey of people who had owned their car 1 to 3 years, CR asked owners about their thoughts in several areas including comfort, driving, styling, and ease of use of in-car electronics.
Of the 27 brands mentioned in the results, the Model 3 took the top spot for overall owner satisfaction.
It wasn’t just the Model 3 that received high accolades.
The Model S came in third, the Model Y fourth, and the Model X tenth.
Among the least satisfying cars were the Mazda CX-3, Nissan Kicks, and Infiniti QX50 and QX60.
