Buying a good car is always important, but it’s especially true in a time when prices are so high and interest rates are skyrocketing. Get it wrong and you’ll be paying top dollar for a car you despise.

Consumer Reports is helping to steer people in the right direction by compiling lists of the most and least satisfied cars based on responses from owners.

Not surprisingly, some of the most satisfying rides have been sports cars. The Chevrolet Corvette took top honors, with 94% of respondents saying they would buy a mid-engined model again.

And these are America’s most satisfying and least satisfying car brands.

Closely behind 90% was the iconic Porsche 911. It’s not cheap by any means, but prices start at $106,100 for him, so it looks like he’s well spent.

Things get a little more complicated as 88% of owners buy Rivian R1T, Ford Maverick Hybrid, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Polestar 2 and Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ again. Kia Telluride and Toyota RAV4 Prime follow closely with 87%. Rounding out the top are the Mazda MX-5 Miata and Dodge Challenger, both of which 86% of owners said they would buy again.

While not the most satisfying, that dubious honor went to the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. Because only 38% of his owners will buy a crossover again.
