Consumer Reports' Most-Loved Cars

Every year, Consumer Reports sends out a survey to its 350,000-plus subscribers, and among the many questions responders are asked, one of the most interesting is whether or not they would choose to buy their most recent new-car purchase all over again.

As you can imagine, the results of this survey are of particular interest to new-car shoppers. After all, who is in a better position to offer automotive buying advice than someone who just went through the new-car purchasing process themselves?

Click through our slideshow to find out which cars are the most loved by Consumer Reports' readers.

MSRP: $21,995 to $32,295
Invoice: $21,995 to $32,995
Fuel Mileage: 22 City / 29 Highway

The Forester is one of Subaru's most popular models, and for good reason. Consumer Reports says that 83 percent of Forester owners who chose the standard engine (a turbocharged engine is optional) would buy one again.

No reason is given why owners of non-turbocharged Foresters are happier with their purchases than those who chose the more powerful turbo engine, leaving us to wonder if buyers in this class prefer fuel efficiency to overall horsepower. In any case, all Subaru Forester models come with an excellent and capable all-wheel-drive system.

1. Tesla Model S

MSRP: $53,000 - $62,000
Invoice: $48,230 - $56,420
Fuel Mileage: 94 City / 97 Highway (Equivalent)

The Tesla Model S, with 98-percent of owners happy enough with their all-electric sedans that they'd buy another one, is the most-loved vehicle in the United States, according to Consumer Reports.

Considering that Tesla Motors is America's youngest automotive brand, and that it's lone model is so bristling with technology and innovation, it's a truly impressive feat that the Model S is proving so popular with consumers.
