Jaguar tops JD Power Dealer Satisfaction Survey for second year in a row

Jaguar dealers were ranked in first place in the latest JD Power Dealer Satisfaction Survey for the second year in a row.

The latest results were published by What Car? and Jaguar scored an 85.5%, just 0.1% ahead of Lexus. Honda’s dealer network came third with 84%. Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover made up the top five with 82.6% and 82% respectively.

Chevrolet sits at the bottom of the table with 69.7%, behind Alfa-Romeo (72.7%), Fiat (75.7%), Peugeot (76.9%) and Mitsubishi (76.9%).

The analysis is based on the opinions of 13,511 customers who had a service experience with their dealership within the past 12 months.

Feedback was given on vehicles bought between January 2010 and December 2011 and focused on the service area; including the booking process, overall staff helpfulness, dealership facilities, quality of work and how fair the service charges were.

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK managing director, said: “Our dealer network is the most important point of contact we have with our customers and I am delighted that Jaguar and Land Rover have performed so well in the JD Power survey for the second year in a row.

"Our product line-up is the strongest and most diverse it has ever been, with new sectors of the market coming to the brand all the time, as proven by record sales in 2013. As our sales grow, so does the quality of our dealer network and we are proud that our dealers have been recognised by our customers, JD Power and WhatCar?”

Pendragon has the largest Jaguar representation of dealerships in the UK with its Stratstone premium division holding 17 sites. Inchcape has nine Jaguar sites and Jardine Motor Group and Hatfields both have six.
