Michael B. Sauter and Grant Suneson 24/7 Wall Street Published 12:34 p.m. UTC Aug 31, 2018 As auto sales hit their first slow period in years and margins are down, automakers must rely more on their reputations for quality and reliability to keep sales at current levels. According to the latest results of a highly regarded poll on auto industry customer satisfaction released Tuesday, some brands are better able to deliver a positive customer experience. These findings come from the 2018 American Customer Satisfaction Index, which surveys car owners on their overall service and product experience with specific auto brands. Scores range from 1 to 100. According to the latest edition, the experience of owning an automobile has improved. The industry-wide score for 2018 is 82, up from 81 in 2017. The best-rated brands this year are a make that held the spot last year and one that moved up several spots. At the other end of the list, one brand holds the unfortunate distinction of … [Read more...] about What are the best and worst car brands in the U.S. in 2018?
Mark Phelan Detroit Free Press Published 8:04 p.m. UTC Jul 17, 2018 It’s ironic, but increasingly likely, that U.S. pickup buyers will be last stand for diesel engines, outside of semi-trucks and maybe tugboats. For years, American drivers were unmoved by diesel’s combination of power and efficiency while tens of millions of European buyers snapped them up for everything from VW Golfs to Mercedes S-class limos. We are well and truly through the looking glass. In 2018, just about every European automaker is phasing out diesels as countries and cities across the continent prepare to ban them. At the same time, the Detroit 3 are rolling out a new generation of diesels — priced at a hefty premium over sexy V8s — to power their most popular and profitable vehicles. The ★★★★ 2018 Ford F-150’s 3.0L diesel is the latest to hit the road, and the best for at least the moment. That last caveat is because archrival Chevrolet has a brand … [Read more...] about Review: Ford’s 2019 F-150 King Ranch is best diesel vehicle on market
opinion Henry Payne The Detroit News Published 11:02 p.m. UTC Jun 29, 2018 My former Detroit News colleague, Scott Burgess, once advised that auto reviewers schedule a regular Porsche 911 test — as a reminder of how good a sports car can be. The same might be said of a Mercedes-Benz S-class and its place atop the luxury kingdom. Everyone is in luxury these days because there’s money to be made. Tesla, Genesis and Alfa Romeo offer new meat; Lincoln and Acura are rediscovering their mojo; Cadillac, BMW and Audi run the Nurburgring like greyhounds. But for pure majesty, Mercedes rules. Its perfect cheekbones and polished manners are handed down the family tree all the way to the little CLA. SUVS, sedans and coupes spring from its loins. Its sinewy V-8 inspires the AMG performance badge and GT race cars — muscled mutants that shred tracks like Marvel’s Juggernaut. S is for Simba on Pride Rock. How can any other mere luxury brand hope … [Read more...] about Payne review: Mercedes S560 Coupe, king of beasts
