The experts at J.D. Power are dedicated to cutting through the fat and determining the tops in the automotive industry year after year. The measure of an auto brand’s abilities to deliver for its customers can be easily determined based on the number of honors it earns from J.D. Power in a given year. By this standard, no other brand was better in 2017 than Chevrolet, which took home a total of nine awards in J.D. Power’s 2017 Vehicle Dependability (VDS); Initial Quality (IQS); and Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Studies.
“Chevrolet is winning with consumers because our designers, engineers, and dealers are focused on delivering great products and a great ownership experience,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and brand chief of Global Chevrolet. “This recognition from J.D. Power shows Chevrolet’s strength and underscores the momentum we have across the board.”
Last year, six different Chevrolet vehicles earned J.D. Power awards, which measure “the automotive brands that are continually exceeding customer expectations and leading the way in terms of dependability, quality and overall customer satisfaction.” The Chevrolet Sonic and Silverado HD topped their respective segments in the VDS and IQS, and the Chevrolet Tahoe was tops in the VDS and APEAL Study.
The Chevrolet Camaro also earned top honors in the VDS, the Silverado 1500 topped the full-size pickup segment in the IQS, and the all-new Chevrolet Bolt EV earned the award for its segment in the APEAL Study. Chevrolet also scored big-time in the 2018 J.D. Power Customer Service Index (CSI) Study and 2017 Sales Satisfaction Index Study, which measure customer satisfaction with the brand’s services and experiences.
We’re proud to represent J.D. Power’s most awarded brand, and we’re excited to show you first-hand why Chevrolet earned that very prestigious title. Stop in for a test drive at College Chevrolet Buick and feel the difference that award-winning quality makes.
This month the spotlight is on our very own Sales Consultant, Jack Maxson! Jack is a new member of our College Chevrolet Buick team and is excited about getting started in this new position in the automotive industry. Growing up in Jackson, Jack didn’t go too far away from home for college, where he graduated from Jackson College & Spring Arbor College. We are glad to have Jack as a part of our College Chevy family and look forward to learning more about him.
In his free time, Jack enjoys outdoor activities and cheering on the Michigan State Spartans, especially their football and basketball teams. When it comes to cars, his dream car would be the 2018 Camaro with ZL1 Package, power with refinement. Not only is this Jack’s dream car, but it’s also his favorite vehicle that we have on our lot and the one that would match his personality. The 2018 Camaro is a special car to Jack and our dealership!
We are honored to have Jack as a part of our team and we hope you feel the same way when you come in and meet him. His favorite part of his job is learning and listening, which makes him a great team member. Stop by College Chevy today and say “Hi!” to one of our newer employees!
