For example, select "Hyundai Elantra" and you can see its score and also how it ranks overall and against its competitors. Which by the way, was pretty good: 656 vs. compact car class average of 640, 7th overall in compact class, 107th overall of all 199 cars surveyed. In the compact class, the ratings went like this:
Civic 680VW GTI 676 (tie)Saturn S 676 (tie)New Beetle 664Golf 662Focus 658Elantra 656Escort ZX2 648Corolla 643Sunfire 641Jetta 635Sentra 631Echo 629VW Cabrio 619Nubira 617Spectra 612Dodge Neon 611Cavalier 610Accent 605Impreza 602Prizm 602Protege 595Rio 595Lanos 592Esteem 583Mirage 580Sephia 576Plymouth Neon 571
There are some really strange results here. For example, the Dodge and Plymouth Neon are the same vehicle, built on the same assembly line. The only thing to account for the difference in scores is dealer satisfaction, and I find it hard to believe that Chrysler-Plymouth dealers are that much worse than Dodge dealers. Or take the Golf and Jetta; one has a hatch, the other a trunk, yet much different scores. How do you account for the difference between the Corolla and Prizm (could be dealer differences)? And the Cavalier and Sunfire? (dealers again?) Or how about some high-quality Japanese cars, the Echo, Impreza, and Protege, ranking so low? Of course, I don't mind that my Elantra GLS showed well, topping the likes of Corolla, Jetta, Sentra, Echo, Impreza, Prizm, and Protege; in fact besting all Japanese brands except the Honda Civic.
