Jaguar Roars To The Lead
Greengates Builders Merchants asks which is your favorite car.
Japan’s luxury car-maker Lexus - which has held the top spot for eleven years has come second in the customer satisfaction league table with Britain’s big cat roaring into the lead - experts citing it as proof that UK cars were now matching the best in the world on quality, style and desirability.
But not all British cars did well Vauxhall - scored badly with its ageing Vectra model finishing last in the individual car section.
Kia’s stylish Sportage 4X4 topped the league table for the most satisfying car to own - just piping Jaguar’s XF saloon which took second place ahead of the Toyota Prius, Skoda Superb and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Jaguar beat long-time winners Lexus into second place, followed by Volkswagen-owned Skoda, Japan’s Honda and Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW in the survey by What Car? magazine and customer satisfaction experts JD Power.
It crowns a remarkable week of good news for the UK manufacturer as booming Jaguar Land Rover this week announced record profits of £1.5billion at a time of unprecedented expansion and investment.
Jaguar customers praised the ‘top-notch workmanship’ and their dealerships for their clean and comfortable waiting areas, helpful staff, but criticised the significant rise in labour rates for servicing and repairs
But with a new F-Type roadster sport car and an XF Sportbrake estate in the pipeline it said ‘the future for Jaguar looks bright.’
