Cadillac has trumped Lexus as the highest regarded luxury brand, according to a owner satisfaction study by research firm AutoPacific. Last year, Lexus narrowly beat Cadillac for the number one spot. Cadillac had the top rated entry Luxury Car with its CTS and solid performances by the rest of its lineup, the firm said. The top rated Mainstream Brand is Honda. The Honda Ridgeline and Odyssey also got top honors in their respective categories.

In rating major segments, Sport Utility Vehicle owners rate their vehicles more satisfying than do Car, Pickup or Minivan owners. This finding goes contrary to popular myth that SUVs are fading in popularity and SUV owners are dissatisfied with their vehicles.

AutoPacific previously announced individual vehicle winners. The vehicle registering highest overall satisfaction in 2006 is the Lincoln Navigator Luxury SUV winning top vehicle, top truck and top Luxury SUV honors. The highest rated car is the new-for-2006 Hyundai flagship — Hyundai Azera.

AutoPacific’s VSA establishes numerical satisfaction ratings for virtually every car and light truck in the United States. Owner satisfaction is calculated across 45 specific areas related to a vehicle’s operation, comfort, safety and the overall purchase/lease experience.

Yup Cadillac should lead all satisfaction surveys, Cadillac is supposed to be the Standard of the World and not some overpriced Toyota!

Take a look at the newer Lexus vehicles. They aren't rebadged Toyotas anymore with the exception of the ES and RX.

Great news. Now make the effin' SIXTEEN already!

So the Azera is the highest-rated car based on, what, 500 responses?

497 of them being Hyundai employees. :P

Cadillac had the top rated entry Luxury Car with its CTS

Can't wait for the next-gen CTS to make its splash :AH-HA_wink:

Basically, but I was doing some comparisons and the GX is different enough for me, especially the Interior.

And what about the LX? Isn't it still a Land Cruiser? <_<

isn't the GX a 4Runner??

I was refering to the "newer" lexus vehicles. Like, the vehicles made after Toyota's announcement to sell Lexus in Japan. Those vehicles include the GS, the IS, and the new LS. The other vehicles just a tarted up Toyotas.

By the way, I believe the GX doesn't share too much with the 4Runner other then the platform and some other under-the-skin details.

Oh yeah... that's a piece of crap. I don't care how long they've been building it. It's not worth more then the Land Cruiser no matter how different they make the headlights look and how "upgraded the interior is" They're just as bad as the domestics with badge engineering.

Considering the Land Cruiser is may be dropped soon (in the U.S., at least), and a new LX is on the way along with a new RX, that will not be a problem anymore.

All I can say is some of the comments on that site are rough.
