Chevrolet does a good job in the 2012 JD Power APEAL ranking


The JP Power APEL ranking offers information on different carmakers and their situations. It seems that General Motors still has a lot of work to do. For example, Chevrolet brand claimed three segment awards and Cadillac finished tied for 8th place overall in the 2012 edition of the study. In the end, maybe the American specialists can hope for more. The study indicated different gratifying elements based on owner evaluation of around 80 attributes. To be more precise, the study indicates the level of popularity in the automotive world. The problem General Motors has is that its customers do not like its products as much as the ones who buy from other companies, or at least they do not manifest in any specific way. It seems that Buick, Chevrolet and GMC received very bad scores in the 2012 study and the only brands they managed to beat were Volvo, Acura and Lincoln. It is not all bad. Toyota, Hyundai, Honda and Nissan also had the same problem, unlike Ford and Chrysler. The last two were at the limit, but in the end finished above the industry average. The only other GM vehicle to make it on the top three was the Cadillac Escalade. Ford has six vehicles in the top three in the Large Crossover/SUV and Midsize Crossover/SUV. The car with the highest score is the Audi A8 and also won a segment award for the A6 and placed third overall. Porsche on the other hand is the 2012 APEAL champion as it had the highest brand score and won two segments with its 911 and Cayenne. The 2012 APEAL study has as base responses gathered between February and May of this year from more than 74.000 buyers and lessees of the new 2012 model-year cars and light trucks. The survey took place after 90 days of ownership.
