In what can only be described as “thoroughly un-shocking,” Consumer Reports compiled data from their annual customer satisfaction survey and found that the Chevrolet Corvette C7 nearly tops the list in terms of owner contentment.
The survey essentially asks participants whether, if they could go back, they would purchase their own car over again. The Stingray came in second place on the survey, according to Autoblog, with 95 percent of current owners confirming that indeed, they would make the same choice.
But really, is it all that surprising? The Stingray has drawn no shortage of journalistic praise since its introduction for the 2014 model year (including from us), and where the average (read: ho-hum) production car from one manufacturer might share 99 percent of its genes with a model from a rival, cars for the enthusiast are much less faceless and interchangeable. One buys a Corvette precisely because it is a Corvette.
So which car beat the Corvette Stingray for the number one spot in the opinions of the consumers? The Tesla Model S, with a 98 percent approval rating. Ah, well, better luck next year.
