Rüsselsheim. In the biggest automobile customer satisfaction survey in Germany – the annual J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) – the Opel ADAM small car received the highest rating. The Opel Insignia claimed a strong fourth place in the midsize class and the Opel Mokka took the bronze medal in the highly competitive compact SUV class. The J.D. Power survey assesses 24 car manufacturers and 68 car models.
“Our customers and the quality of our vehicles are our highest priority”, said Jürgen Keller, Opel’s Executive Director Sales, Marketing & Aftersales in Germany. “The excellent performance in this year’s J.D. Power Report not only fills us with pride, it also motivates us to aim for better and better results with each new model.”
This year 15,453 people were interviewed online about their car by J.D. Power. In order to take part, customers must have been driving the vehicle for at least two years. The survey asks questions about quality/durability, appearance and running costs. The assessments result in a ranking in which the brand or model with the lowest number of errors emerges as the winner.
