Buick jumped two spots to lead the mass-market category, followed by Volkswagen and GM’s GMC.
The survey measures customer satisfaction with service at a franchised dealer facility for maintenance or repair work among owners and lessees of one to five-year-old vehicles.
The 2014 survey, released on Wednesday, was based on responses from more than 90,000 owners and lessees of 2009 to 2013 model-year vehicles. (Reporting by Ankit Ajmera in Bangalore; Editing by Saumyadeb Chakrabarty)
