Following an analysis of its online reviews, Cars.com released its latest list of U.S. consumers' both most reviewed and most highly reviewed vehicles on Wednesday.
“Shopper reviews are a critical part of the car shopping process,” Cars.com data analyst David Greene said in a news release. “Cars are one of the largest investments anyone makes, and the car you choose is going to be in your life for years. Shoppers want to know from trusted peers whether or not they’ve had a good experience with certain makes and models.
On Cars.com's list of top five, the Honda brand takes the first, second and fourth spot for most reviewed car.
Greene said, "The Honda Accord is a top-seller, and has been for years, so it’s no surprise that it is also one of the most-reviewed cars on Cars.com."
The following is a list of the top five most reviewed cars on Cars.com:
- Honda Accord
- Honda Civic
- Toyota Camry
- Honda CR-V
- Ford F-150
The iconic Chevrolet Corvette is the review site's highest rated car, followed by the Toyota 4Runner, the only SUV and economy model to take a top five spot on the list.
“It’s surprising to see the Toyota 4Runner get such high ratings as the only sport-utility vehicle among a top five list of sports and luxury cars,” Greene said. “The 4Runner is one of the last SUVs built on a truck frame, while most competitors have moved to building car-like crossovers.”
The following is a list of the top five highest-rated cars by Cars.com reviewers:
- Chevrolet Corvette
- Toyota 4Runner
- Ford Mustang
- Porsche 911
- Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Additionally, the site's data analysts also identified where U.S. consumers are leaving the most dealership reviews.
“We looked at the data to determine where in the U.S. consumers are most inclined to review their experience at a dealership and found that, by a wide margin, Florida shoppers leave the most dealership reviews,” Greene explained. “Runner-ups include Texas, Nevada and California, where shoppers were all highly inclined to review their experience at a dealership.”
Here is a list of the five states with the most dealer reviews on the review site and respective review totals:
- Florida – 365,000 dealer reviews
- Texas – 255,000 dealer reviews
- Nevada – 249,000 dealer reviews
- California – 247,000 dealer reviews
- New Jersey – 226,000 dealer reviews
