The results are in, and SsangYong is Britain’s best performing car manufacturer according to the Honest John Satisfaction Index 2018, announced today.
Based on the feedback of 10,000 car owners, SsangYong has been named as the ‘Best performing car manufacturer’ in the survey.
Owners were asked to rate their cars in a variety of important areas, with drivers scoring them for reliability, ride comfort, fuel economy, practicality and performance. Owners also ranked their cars for build quality, ease of use, safety and repair costs. SsangYong came out top in the manufacturer table, with a Satisfaction Index Score of 90.3%.
HonestJohn.co.uk managing editor, Daniel Powell, said: “SsangYong is Britain’s best performing car manufacturer, with drivers rating the brand in almost every area in the Honest John Satisfaction Index 2018.
“Owners tell us they think SsangYong build reliable and practical cars, that are easy to use and comfortable. Notching up an impressive 90 per cent approval rating with drivers, no other car manufacturer can match SsangYong for outright owner approval.”
“This is a phenomenal result,” says managing director of SsangYong Motor UK, Nick Laird, “and endorses what customers regularly tell us - they’re clearly very happy with our cars, and we are delighted our dealers are looking after customers so well. We continually strive to do even better, and our recently announced 7-year/150,000 mile warranty - the best of any manufacturer, is evidence of this.”
