Jaguar cars 'most satisfying'
Jaguar is the car maker that customers are most satisfied with, according to a major survey.
The luxury car company ends Lexus's 11-year reign at the top of the UK ownership satisfaction tables compiled by information services company JD Power and Associates and What Car? magazine.
Jaguar also does well in the individual models table, with its XF runner-up to the Kia Sportage.
In the manufacturers' table, Lexus and Skoda are joint runners-up to Jaguar, with Honda fourth, Mercedes-Benz fifth and Toyota sixth.
Chevrolet finishes bottom of the list which comprises 27 companies. Vauxhall is second-bottom.
The results are based on the evaluations of almost 18,000 online interviews from UK car owners after an average of two years of ownership.
Third in the individual models' table is the Toyota Prius followed by the Skoda Superb and the Mercedes-Benz E-class.
Bottom of the list in 118th place is the Vauxhall Vectra, with the Nissan Pixo second-last.
What Car? editor-in-chief Chas Hallett said: "This is a great accolade for everyone at Jaguar.
