Subaru Ranks Highest Overall in J.D. Power Automotive Brand Loyalty Study

Subaru, as a brand, is renowned for its vehicle reliability. In fact, 97% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today. This commitment to high-quality, reliable vehicles has resulted in numerous awards and accolades, for the brand. 

A few of those awards include Kelley Blue Book's 2019 Most Trusted Brand, and the top spot in owner satisfaction, according to the American Consumer Satisfaction Index. Subaru can now add one more accolade to their belt. Subaru has ranked highest overall in J.D. Power's 2019 Automotive Brand Loyalty Study.

 

The Automotive Brand Loyalty Study calculates whether an owner purchased the same brand after trading in an existing vehicle on a new vehicle purchase or lease. Customer loyalty is based on the percentage of vehicle owners who choose the same brand when trading in or purchasing their next vehicle. [1]

In an article by Automotive News, Tyson Jominy, vice president of data and analytics at J.D. Power, had the following to say about Subaru's latest achievement, "Subaru meets its owners where they are and provides reliable and affordable transportation. In many ways, Subaru transcends economics. Celebrities, academics, outdoorsy types, your cousin back east all drive Subaru. But in reality only one Subaru model even starts above $30,000 MSRP -- the recently launched Ascent. The rest are all $27,000 or below." [2]

Here at Ferguson Subaru, we believe in the product we sell, and greatly appreciate our customers’ loyalty to the Subaru brand. If you haven’t tried a Subaru before, come see us and see what it’s all about! Ferguson Subaru is Northeast Oklahoma's premier Subaru dealer.

Three 2019 Subaru Models Earn Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards

Subaru has earned not one, not two, but three Best Resale Value Awards for three 2019 models. The 2019 Outback, 2019 Legacy, and 2019 Crosstrek have each won Kelley Blue Book’s 2019 Best Resale Value, in their respective categories. 

2019 Subaru Outback
Best Resale Value: Midsize SUV/Crossover – 2-Row 


2019 Subaru Legacy
Best Resale Value: Midsize Car 


2019 Subaru Crosstrek
Best Resale Value: Compact SUV/Crossover 


 2019 Subaru Outback

Kelley Blue Book’s Best Resale Value Awards are based on projections from the Kelley Blue Book Official Residual Value Guide. Kelley Blue Book Residual Values are established by experienced automotive analysts that review statistical models built upon millions of transactions. Vehicles that earn the highest five-year residual values, expressed as a percentage of their original Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), are selected for these prestigious awards. These awards, like all the KBB.com new- and used-vehicle information, are designed to help consumers make more informed car-buying decisions. 

The Outback earned its fourth win in its segment for KBB’s Best Resale Value Awards. The roomy Outback is a master of everyday versatility and outdoors-oriented activities. The 2019 Outback offers a wide range of innovative features, including: smart phone integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto, standard Subaru EyeSight, X-Mode with Hill Descent Control, 8.7-in. ground clearance, Active Torque Vectoring, and standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. 

The Legacy earned its fourth win in KBB’s Best Resale Value Awards. The Subaru Legacy remains the only model in its segment – the midsize sedan segment – to come standard with All-Wheel Drive. The combination of Subaru’s standard Active Torque Vectoring and acclaimed Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive give the Legacy confident grip in all weather conditions. Like the Outback, the Legacy also features EyeSight as standard equipment across all trim levels. 

The Crosstrek is Subaru’s third-best-selling model. With available EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Crosstrek is poised to remain atop the small SUV/crossover segment. The Subaru Crosstrek has no problem clearing any type of terrain, with 8.7 inches of ground clearance. 

These awards reinforce Subaru’s commitment to providing customers with vehicles made to the highest standards of value, dependability, reliability, and safety.
