Automobile consultants AutoPacific have released the results of its 2006 model year vehicle satisfaction survey. The company's Vehicle Satisfaction Award (VSA) earmarks segment winners by assigning numeric values to the satisfaction ratings of owners it surveyed in 44 areas related to a vehicle's ownership experience.
