AutoPacific Announces 2017 Ideal Vehicle Awards



TUSTIN, Calif. (August 22, 2017) – Automotive research and consulting firm AutoPacific, Inc. today announced the 2017 Ideal Vehicle Awards (IVA), recognizing vehicles that best meet their owner’s expectations and desires.

The 2017 awards are based on responses from more than 54,000 owners of new model year 2016 and 2017 vehicles across all major manufacturers. Respondents were asked what changes they would make to their car or truck in 15 key categories, including ride and handling, interior storage, safety features, power and acceleration and technology. “Even the most satisfied owner would change something about their vehicle if given the opportunity,” says George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. “AutoPacific’s IVAs identify vehicles whose owners want the least amount of change – those that are truly hitting the mark with owners.”

Porsche Returns to the Top

After being edged out by Tesla last year, Porsche returns to the top with wins for top brand and top overall vehicle, a testament to the brand’s ability to meet owner expectations in both the sports car and luxury crossover SUV segments in which it competes. “Winning a brand recognition speaks volumes about a brand’s product planning capabilities,” says Peterson. “While some brands do cars well, others do trucks or SUVs well. Success doesn’t always span a complete product line. Porsche has a small lineup, but has mastered polar opposite segments.” Porsche also has this year’s highest scoring vehicle overall, the 911, and wins the Premium Luxury Crossover and Luxury Crossover SUV segments with the Cayenne and Macan.

Ford Motor Company Runs Away with 2017 Ideal Vehicle Awards – Takes Home More Wins Than Any Other Manufacturer

Moving up substantially from prior years’ Ideal Vehicle Award results, Ford has winning vehicles in 5 segments, in addition to having the Most Ideal Popular brand. “You don’t get the best selling vehicles in America without giving owners what they want,” says Peterson. “Ford’s F-Series pickups give owners an ideal combination of performance, comfort, safety, and styling.” Additionally, the spaciousness and ease of getting in and out bring the Edge and Flex to the top and owners enjoy the Mustang’s visibility and seat fit.

Lincoln gets 2 segment wins, including the MKZ, which handily outscores the 2nd place Lexus ES and wins its segment for the 4th year in a row.  Navigator wins in its last year before it is replaced by a new generation Navigator.

It appears that the roll out of Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system has gone a long way in contributing to Ford’s 2017 results.

New Chrysler Pacifica and Genesis G90 Hit Mark with Owners

Chrysler’s debut of the Pacifica is a hit with owners, primarily in the areas of safety features, cargo space/cargo opening and passenger room. “In a segment where roominess and safety are top priorities for owners, the Chrysler Pacifica met expectations for 90% of owners – a strong showing that helped Chrysler solidify the top spot,” says Peterson.

The Genesis G90 was a clear winner in the Luxury Car segment, with strong performance in the areas of visibility, passenger room, safety features, ease of ingress/egress and interior storage.

Both the Pacifica and G90 were also AutoPacific 2017 Vehicle Satisfaction Award winners. The G90 won AutoPacific’s President’s Award as achieving the highest VSA score EVER!

The Advanced Technology Challenge

The highest attained ideal info/entertainment technology rating was in 2009, when 73% of vehicle owners said they would keep the same technology as now when asked if they would keep it the same, have more advanced technology, or have simpler, easier to use technology. Since then, owners have increasingly desired simpler, easier to use technology, while desire for more advanced technology has remained fairly steady – ranging from 23% to 29% from 2006 to 2017 (27% in 2017). “Consumers today would make 3 main changes to their vehicle if they could: more advanced technology, more safety features and more/better interior storage,” says Peterson. “Vehicles that are successful in AutoPacific’s Ideal Vehicle Award calculations typically do well in those three areas, yet also do well with the human-machine interface, integrating advanced technologies that are easy to use for owners.”

AutoPacific Announces 2017 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards


AutoPacific Announces 2017 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards

Lincoln Most Satisfying Premium Brand; GMC Most Satisfying Popular Brand

TUSTIN, Calif. (June 7, 2017)AutoPacific today announced its 21st annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSAs), identifying the most satisfying vehicles in the market. An industry benchmark for measuring how satisfied an owner is with his/her new vehicle, VSAs are based on survey responses from over 54,000 owners of new 2016 and 2017 cars and light trucks.

“This is the 21st anniversary of AutoPacific identifying the most satisfying vehicles and providing consumers a way to streamline their search for their perfect vehicle,” says AutoPacific president George Peterson. AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards objectively measure owner satisfaction with 49 separate attributes ranging from interior comfort and styling to fuel economy and performance. “VSAs look at the big picture, which includes owners’ experiences with their vehicle’s quality and safety, but also goes deeper into the heart of the ownership experience.”

Lincoln is the most satisfying premium brand, regaining leadership from Tesla and nosing out domestic luxury competitor Cadillac. The newcomer Genesis brand from Hyundai ranks third – close behind Lincoln and Cadillac. GMC is the top ranked popular brand, retaking the lead from 2016’s top popular brand, Kia.

VSAs Globally Distributed Among Japanese, American, Korean and European Automakers

Eight VSAs are won by Japanese brands. Seven VSAs are won by American brands. Korean brands take home four VSA Awards. European brands also have four VSA Awards.

Overall for 2017, Nissan receives the most wins with 5, followed by Kia with 3. Porsche, Honda and Ford each have 2 wins. Genesis, Volvo, Mini, Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, GMC, Lexus, and Lincoln each take home 1 win.

In a market where vehicles continue to raise the bar for owner satisfaction, AutoPacific recognizes another President’s Award winner this year: the 2017 Genesis G90. This award is given only when the overall score tops the previous high score. The previous President’s Award winners were the 2016 Cadillac Escalade, 2015 Kia K900, 2014 Mercedes S-Class and the 2010 Hyundai Sonata.

Seven All-New or Redesigned Vehicles Top Their Segment

Of the twenty-three winning vehicles, seven were redesigned for the 2017 model year, including the Genesis G90, Kia Cadenza, Nissan Titan, Ford F-Series Super Duty, Honda Ridgeline, Kia Sportage and Chrysler Pacifica. “Product planners hold their breath after the release of a new, or redesigned, vehicle, hoping that all their research, designing and planning has successful results,” says Peterson who worked as a product planner prior to founding AutoPacific thirty-one years ago. “Six of the seven redesigned vehicles, the Genesis G90, Kia Cadenza, Ford Super Duty, Honda Ridgeline, Kia Sportage and Chrysler Pacifica, greatly exceed the scores of their nearest segment competitors – big wins in such a competitive industry.”

Toyota and Lexus dominate the 2016 Motorist Choice Awards



LOS ANGELESSeptember 27, 2016 – Notable automotive industry research companies IntelliChoice and AutoPacific today announced the winners of the 2016 Motorist Choice Awards. Now in its eleventh year, this esteemed award recognizes vehicles that deliver the compelling and sought after combination of high consumer satisfaction and lower-than-expected ownership costs over time – meeting the needs and expectations of both the heart and the mind.

The Motorist Choice Awards (MCA), which take AutoPacific’s owner satisfaction data from new car and light truck owners and combine those data with IntelliChoice’s cost of ownership rating methodology, provide a reliable guide for new car shoppers. “Automakers know that car buyers are looking for a vehicle that satisfies both their needs and emotional desires, and they want it at a great value,” said Eric Anderson, Director of Data Products for IntelliChoice. “Every Motorist Choice winner does just that by providing a strong long term value and great ownership satisfaction.”

Toyota Leads with 9 Winning Vehicles

Toyota, who had 6 winning vehicles last year, has the most wins again with 9 vehicles between the Toyota and Lexus brands. All 6 of Toyota’s winning vehicles from last year get repeat wins this year, while the Toyota Prius v HEV, Tacoma and Lexus GX 460 are new additions. “Toyota is really continuing to dominate and doing so across a broad spectrum of vehicle segments,” says Dan Hall, vice president of AutoPacific. Toyota has 3 winning vehicles in the car segments and 6 winning vehicles in the truck segments, expanding their MCA success from SUVs into trucks and minivans.

Winning vehicles came from 10 different brands and 8 different manufacturers. Trailing Toyota, but continuing to dominate in the full-size truck and large SUV segments, General Motors has 4 winning vehicles, 3 of which were winners last year; Honda has 3 wins, including the all-new Honda Civic; BMW and Subaru each have 2 wins; and Volvo, FCA and Mazda have 1 winning vehicle each.

Consistent Performances from 16 Vehicles

Of the 23 winning vehicles this year, 16 are repeats from 2015, spread across 9 brands. “With many vehicle awards we find that the list of winners changes year over year as newly designed vehicles enter the marketplace,” says Hall. “Continuing to perform strong in owner satisfaction and cost of ownership while in
the middle or end of the lifecycle speaks volumes about the importance of designing a vehicle with long-term owner satisfaction in mind.” Of those 16 repeat winners, 3 were all-new in 2015, 1 is all new for 2016, and the remaining repeat winners have lifecycles that extend as far back as 2007 (GMC Acadia).

Each year, AutoPacific performs the broadest and most widely followed vehicle satisfaction survey in the U.S. This results in consumer feedback from more than 66,000 new vehicle buyers on a recently purchased model year 2016 vehicle. Using 50 key attributes covering the entire ownership experience, AutoPacific calculates overall vehicle satisfaction for individual models and vehicle segments and announces its annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA) based on the findings.

Concurrently, IntelliChoice constantly monitors and updates the cost of ownership metrics for more than 2,000 model trim lines to give valuable insight into the financial impact of ownership over a five year period. This analysis is the foundation of the IntelliChoice Best Overall Value of the Year (BOVY) awards, announced each January.

The Motorist Choice Awards combine complementary analyses from both firms into one set of accolades representing vehicles that earn high marks on both sets of criteria. This methodology provides a superior means of evaluating “Best in Class” vehicles that align consumer shopping patterns with probability for both satisfaction and value.

Why Connect Your Phone To Your Car Stereo


Honestly now, who pays attention to the type of cup holder or tablet support a car has when interested in getting a new one? All you can think of now is how strong the engine is or if you can use an auto-pilot highway cruising system. But you will eventually want to be able to listen to music or your favorite audio books – so here’s a reason to want to connect your phone to your car stereo using an USB or aftermarket stereo. But…


Why Use A Phone Inside Your Car

Besides the previously mentioned reasons, if you’re a serious business man, chances are you will want to keep track of everything going on with your projects. And one way of doing this is by picking up the phone and making calls even when you are on the highway. But because driving and using your cell phone don’t go work together according to the law, one solution is to make hands-free calls. This way, when a customer calls, you can pick up; if your marketing is efficient, calls should be coming in 24/7. And to really learn which advertising channels generate the largest number of calls – and which of them result into new clients and sales – use the call tracking service provided by AddSource. You will get to find out important details such as the tracking of your call quantity, the duration of each call, the date and time of the calls, as well as the number of calls that have been answered or dropped (always bad for business, so look into that stereo built-in Bluetooth option for your car). You will also receive reports of the numbers, destinations, advertising sources and geographical locations of the callers and figure out ways to improve your marketing. The AddSource solutions will enable you to save calls, turn them into the mp3 audio format and listen to your most important calls while driving on the highway.

Self-censoring of artists


One thing that every artist worries about is self-censoring their creations. There’s nothing worse than hours of painstaking work having to be taken down or covered because there’s a threat of someone being upset or it being deemed inappropriate.

In the last few years self-censorship has been on the rise within the art community and it’s oddly ironic that a medium that’s supposed to be about self-expression is being limited in such a way.

But why exactly do so many artists have to self-censor themselves in such a way?

Well according to the Director of the Tate Galleries, Sir Nicholas Serota, these artists are taking it upon themselves to cut their work down in order to avoid upsetting their sponsors or the media which could in turn see them losing their sponsorship or worse.

For some artists unless they self-censor they run the chance of having their reputation dragged through the mud so that they can never showcase another piece again.

According to Chinese artist Ai Weiwei the main tool to encourage an artist to self-censor is intimidation as he said in an essay: “Censorship and self-censorship act together in this society to ensure that independent thinking and creativity cannot exist without bowing to authority.”

For example Weiwei regularly has threats of imprisonment from the Chinese Government when he creates an art installation. This has led to either crafting it under a pseudonym or outright removing his art from a show that he spent weeks on.

Then there’s the women artists in Iran who are being threatened with legal action if anything they paint is un-Islamic, for example women not wearing veils or impressionist nudes, so they have to limit what they can actually paint.

In reality we can’t do anything about this. Censorship is part and parcel of our society; it’s always a vocal minority that sways the vote towards banning something in case it causes public outrage or upsets someone.

Trying to change what is considered offensive and inoffensive, especially in art, is quite a minefield. It isn’t as difficult to decide as say something like finding the best bingo site as that’s fairly straight forward, but with art there are a lot of shades of grey as one person’s masterpiece is another’s monstrosity.

Going by current trends it seems that self-censorship in the world of art is on the rise and if it starts to play an even bigger part in our lives it will be detrimental to us all as we won’t be able to experience fine works or be inspired to create our own masterpieces.

Manual or Automatic Transmission? What Enthusiasts Prefer to Drive


Whizzing around tight corners, while rapidly shifting the gears of a manual transmission is exhilarating! However, reality dictates that I spend most of my driving time mindlessly crawling through rush-hour traffic, so the thought of constantly burying my leg into a clutch while shifting from 2nd to 3rd back to 2nd every five seconds has made me think twice about buying a car with a manual transmission. Driving an automatic now-a-days just seems more convenient for day-to-day driving. And apparently I am not alone here.

VehicleVoice recently surveyed its panel to find out how much of the vehicle-driving population still drives a manual transmission. Looking specifically at enthusiasts (after all, aren’t they primarily the ones driving a stick shift?), the data reveals that, despite a significant portion of our sample claiming stick-shift know-how (89%), only a fraction of them (24%) are actually driving one today.
