Nissan Frontier Ranked Number One in Vehicle Satisfaction Survey

Leader in mid-size truck segment, Nissan Frontier, hauls in fifth major award for 2012.


St. Peters, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/20/2012 -- The Nissan Frontier has won the award for highest vehicle satisfaction in the small truck category from Auto Pacific. This award measures satisfaction of the customers when they purchase new cars and light trucks. Auto Pacific’s award is based on more than 75,000 survey respondents who rate 48 key vehicle attributes on their importance when considering to purchase, as well as satisfaction after purchase.

Combining premium hardware, extraordinary power and off-road athleticism, Frontier continues to be a leader in the mid-size truck segment. The Nissan Frontier emulates many of the Nissan Titan's full-size features, including its bold, expressive and adventurous exterior styling.

"The 2012 Frontier has earned numerous accolades for its dependability and value since its launch, and today we celebrate the distinguished honor of providing our valued owners with the highest level of overall satisfaction," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America. "This award underscores the strong commitment the company has made in delivering quality and reliability while still offering new levels of innovation, fuel-efficiency, dynamic performance and premium style to all our customers."

"The quality of vehicles from all manufacturers has risen to the highest level in history and what delineates a car or truck is owner satisfaction," said George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. "Consumer purchases are often influenced by objective awards especially when they are based on consumer sentiment. It was our goal to get the input from as many consumers as possible because ultimately, it's the consumer's opinion that counts."

This award from Auto Pacific makes five total for the Nissan Frontier, the most notable one coming for J.D.
