2011 Consumers’ Top Rated
When you’re searching for a new car, Edmunds.com is a valuable resource for information to help in the decision-making process. To give you a well-rounded picture of the cars on the market, Edmunds offers the viewpoints of both our editors and real-world car owners like you. Observations and insights from actual vehicle owners, who are uniquely qualified to provide their own ratings and reviews, complement the breadth and regimentation of our editorial coverage of the cars.
In Edmunds.com’s Consumer Ratings and Reviews, owners are invited to write and submit reviews of their recently purchased vehicles and provide satisfaction ratings in eight important categories. Once a year we tally the results from these ratings to see which cars and trucks most satisfied our visitors. The 2011 Edmunds.com Consumers’ Top Rated Awards features 21 categories, covering the automotive gamut from Coupe Under $25,000 to Large Truck.
Edmunds.com’s 2011 Consumers’ Top Rated vehicles are those that received the highest average rating from our visitors as of May 31, 2011. All 2011 vehicle models that received the required minimum number of consumer ratings were eligible. To determine each vehicle’s price category, we use the average MSRP (excluding destination charges) of all available style levels according to a formula that gives more weight to those style levels with the greatest proportion of sales.
