TUSTIN, Calif. (May 20, 2010) — AutoPacific today announced its 14th Annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA) to help consumers make informed vehicle purchase decisions.

AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Award is an industry benchmark for measuring how satisfied an owner is with his/her new car or light truck. This study by the Southern California-based automotive research firm summarizes the results of over 42,000 new vehicle owners.
“Vehicles that score highest in the Vehicle Satisfaction Awards are delivering value and satisfaction across a wide range of attributes,” says Peterson. “The winners perform well in 48 separate categories that objectively measure the ownership experience.”

Each year AutoPacific identifies the Brand and individual vehicles that top all others in vehicle satisfaction: The Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.

Direct Injection and Dual-Clutch Transmission
The next all-new Porsche 911 is still being prepared (998), but this fall we get a mid-term update. Porsche’s released the first photos, which show us a look that hasn’t changed much stretched over updated powertrains and modern infotainment.

While European sales begin in July 2008, we in North America have to wait until September. After siblings Volkswagen and Audi began using both technologies, Porsche starts using direct-injection engines and a dual-clutch automated manual (with seven speeds, and finally replacing the selectable but automatic Tiptronic) for its iconic sports car.
