Most people who owned this car told Consumer Reports they weren't sure they'd buy it again.

In the annual Consumer Reports survey of car owner satisfaction, nobody beat the Tesla Model S.

Every year, Consumer Reports asks car owners whether they would buy the same vehicle again, given its price, performance, reliability, comfort, and the enjoyment it offers. This year, based on responses about roughly 350,000 vehicles, Tesla topped the pack with a score of 99/100.

“We typically find the cars that inspire the strongest consumer loyalty are those that are either fun to drive, deliver great fuel economy, are fashionably green, or envelop owners in a high-tech, luxurious driving environment,” Consumer Reports says. The Tesla offers all that, plus it aced all of CR’s tests. Here are some other winners in various vehicle categories:

  • Sports car: Porsche Boxster
  • Luxury sedan: Audi A6
  • Large sedan: Dodge Charger (V8)
  • Mid-sized sedan: Mazda6
  • Compact: Volkswagen Golf TDI
  • SUV: Subaru Forester

But where there are winners, there are losers. The car owners are least happy with has the misfortune of holding the title for a second year in a row — it’s the subcompact Nissan Versa, which only 45 percent of owners told Consumer Reports they would definitely buy again.

Other cars owners are falling out of love with, according to the Consumer Reports survey, include the Nissan Rogue, Jeep Compass, the Acura ILX, the Kia Optima Hybrid, the four-cylinder Chrysler 200, the Kia Sedona, and the Nissan Armada.
