FCA Surpasses Ford And GM In Customer Satisfaction

The American Customer Satisfaction Index shows FCA improving their scores and outclassing both Ford and GM.


  • Ram leads the way in FCA’s results.

  • Generally speaking, customers are overall less satisfied with their vehicles for the 2nd year in a row.


These survey results were attained by interviewing 10,414 customers via email between July 1st, 2019, and June 14th, 2020. Interviewees were selected at random and through their responses, FCA has completed quite a turnaround.

The American Customer Satisfaction Index has discovered that overall customer satisfaction with their automobiles and light vehicles has dropped 1.3% to 78 (out of 100). This is the second consecutive year of customer satisfaction decreases. Relatedly, 17 brands have posted drops in year over year results.

In the recent past, FCA had registered some of the lowest scores but clearly that’s behind them now. In fact, among mainstream brands, Ram has tied with Toyota with 80, and matches luxury makes such as Audi, Mercedes-Benz, and Cadillac.
