Honda Tops the J.D. Power Survey Results

Honda placed second overall in the J.D. Power Survey for the second year. It strongly scored in all four categories---vehicle reliability, vehicle appeal, service satisfaction and ownership costs. These latest results are equivalent to Honda's stable place at the top five for the past five surveys. The Jazz finished first in its own category, making it an undefeated streak since it was first introduced in the 2004 results. The Jazz also finished third in the overall model ranking table, making it Honda’s highest achieving model to appear.

Plus, the Honda CR-V remains the best-selling sports utility vehicle this year, a title justified by the J.D. Power survey, in which CR-V was voted second in its segment. Total sales of 8,133 petrol and diesel models during the first four months of the year, make the CR-V more popular than its closest rivals. Since its launch in January this year, the Civic Type-R has raced up the sales table, clocking up more than 1,800 registrations. Meanwhile, the Civic 3-door and 5-door models continue their attack on the sales charts. With over 13,000 units sold this year across the four variants, the combination of futuristic styling and practicality clearly still resonates with buyers.(Civic 3-door: 1,894 petrol, 673 diesel. Civic 5-door: 6,781 petrol and 3,948 diesel.)

Aside from all these, the Civic bagged the following prizes too: New Civic was voted Best Compact Family Car; Civic Hybrid was awarded 1st prize overall Environmental Transport Association 2007 Awards for the second year running. So just imagine how great it must be to live the Honda Civic Life.
