Owners of 2015 and 2016 vehicles were asked 15 questions after 90 days of ownership by AutoPacific and over 65,000 responses were received. Respondents were then asked to recommend changes to their vehicle in the five following areas: ride and handling, interior storage, safety features, power and acceleration, and technology. George Peterson, president of AutoPacific, explained, “By asking vehicle owners if they would change various aspects of their vehicle if given the opportunity, we not only identify problem areas and opportunities for improvement, but we also find out which manufacturers are truly hitting the mark with owners.”
What The Experts Say:
2016 Dodge Challenger: “Ready to leave most other cars in a thick cloud of white smoke? We love the 2016 Dodge Challenger’s authentic muscle car persona and how Dodge backs it up with real performance and surprising practicality. Strong engine choices, topped by the insane 707-hp Hellcat V8; actual room for four adults; an enormous trunk, especially compared to rivals; highly customizable thanks to a huge number of options; relatively supple ride, especially on the highway; touchscreen interface is packed with features and easy to use.” –Edmunds.com
2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee: “If you want a midsize SUV that does a little of everything, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a prime candidate. Its well-trimmed cabin provides comfy seating, and it easily masters both off-road trails and daily commutes alike. Diverse engine lineup, including thrifty diesel V6; upscale interior; plenty of luxury and technology-oriented features; irrefutable off-road ability; outlandish SRT model.” –Edmunds.com
