Thumbs Up ION ranked Best Small Car on Strategic Vision Survey

Well it seems like there are more positive things being said about the saturn ION now I found this on the car connection. As you can see the ION was ranked as the best small car

Quote:
Strategic Vision released its annual Total Quality Index Monday, ranking Volkswagen first among multi-line automakers, and BMW tops among brands.

Though imports headed the majority of segments, the domestic auto manufacturers, particularly General Motors, are making gains. New-vehicle buyers rated GM tops in three segments with a tie in a fourth. Ford, after four years out of the top spot, won in two segments.

BMW remained the highest scoring brand, while Cadillac moved into second place, ahead of Lexus and Mercedes. Compared to full-year 2002 results, Caddy was the most improved brand.

Among the Japanese makers, Honda was the only multi-segment winner with three. The Infiniti G35’s top honors in the near-luxury car category were the first for the brand. Subaru led one segment, and Toyota had a tie with its redesigned 4Runner.

Strategic Vision surveyed more than 31,000 October — November buyers of 2003 models at least 90 days after their purchase. TQI rates cars based on a combination of expectations met, quality, emotional attributes such as design and how well the dealer completed the sale and dealt with early glitches. —Jim Burt

Best midsize: Pontiac Bonneville? I don't agree...and is the Bonneville really even a midsize?

It's better to have it on here 3x or more to share some good news. At least I think so.

Grand Am isnt midsize. But I agree The Grand Am still registers as a compact sedan. Its still too small to be a midsize car. They really need to come out with just a sedan class for cars like the Grand Am that dont fit between compact and midsize.....but I guess it doesnt really matter

That is nice to see. Just wondering what exactly Strategic Vision is? A magazine? Never heard of it. Is L. Ron Hubbard one of their editors? Just wondering since I've never heard of it.

It's like JD Power. They do surveys of all sorts of things, including cars. Lots of obscure industry stuff too.
