Shoppers Showing Love for Favorite Cars

By Cars.com, Special for  USDR

Cars.com has long been a go-to resource for shoppers in the market for a new or used car. With millions of reviews from both experts and consumers, site users have access to a plethora of information to help inform one of life’s biggest  purchases.

A team of Cars.com data analysts recently dug into the numbers to determine which cars are the most popular with  users.

The top five most reviewed cars on Cars.com  are:

  1. Honda Accord
  2. Honda Civic
  3. Toyota Camry
  4. Honda CR-V
  5. Ford F-150

The top five highest-rated cars by Cars.com users  are:

  1. Chevrolet Corvette
  2. Toyota 4Runner
  3. Ford Mustang
  4. Porsche 911
  5. Mercedes-Benz S-Class

“Shopper reviews are a critical part of the car shopping process,” said David Greene, a data analyst with Cars.com. “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. 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,” Greene  said.

“It’s surprising to see the Toyota 4Runner get such high ratings as the only sport-utility vehicle among a top 5 list of sports and luxury cars,” Greene continued. “The 4Runner is one of the last SUVs built on a truck frame, while most competitors have moved to building car-like  crossovers.”

In addition to consumer reviews of individual vehicles, Cars.com helps consumers find the right dealership to do business  with.

“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,” said Greene. “Runner-ups include Texas, Nevadaand California where shoppers were all highly inclined to review their experience at a  dealership.”

The top five states with the most Dealer Reviews on Cars.com  are:

  1. Florida – 365,000 dealer reviews
  2. Texas – 255,000 dealer reviews
  3. Nevada – 249,000 dealer reviews
  4. California – 247,000 dealer reviews
  5. New Jersey – 226,000 dealer reviews
