Despite an overwhelming increase in recalls, satisfaction among recall customers has improved according to the 2015 Consumer Service Index (CSI) Study released by J.D. Power.

The market as a whole saw a slight decline in overall satisfaction this year but customers who take their vehicle to a dealer for recall-related work saw its score improve to 789 from 777 in 2014. Consequently there is now an 11-point gap in satisfaction between customers with a recall visit and those with a non-recall visit, compared to a gap of 27 points last year and 21 points in 2013.

The 2015 U.S. CSI Study measures customer satisfaction with service at a franchised dealer facility for maintenance or repair work among owners and lessees of one-to five-year-old-vehicles and you can see the top 10 best car dealerships by brand below.

10. Nissan
Coming in at slightly above the mass market brand average of 792 is Nissan in 10th place with a score of 796 on a 1000-point scale. The Japanese automaker has stayed steady but did experience a minor drop compared to last year’s score of 797. In 2014, Nissan scored the mass market average, so this year it has improved compared to other automakers.

9. Honda
Honda is tied with Nissan with a score of 796 and is an improvement compared to last year’s score of 792. Compared to the mass market brand average, Honda did improve in 2015 compared to last year, when it was five points below the average.

8. Kia
Korean automaker Kia continues to improve its service satisfaction scoring 798 this year. It’s only two points more than it scored last year (796), but the automaker is above the mass market average in 2015 while it was below last year.

7. Hyundai

Just like its sister brand Kia, Hyundai also improved this year coming in seventh place with a score of 803. Last year, Hyundai scored 798 and the company continues to remain steady above the mass market average.

6. Toyota
Toyota remains consistent throughout the years that J.D. Power has conducted its CSI. This year the Japanese automaker lands in the sixth position with a score of 805, a slight improvement to its 801 from 2014. The company is just one brand you can always depend on seeing performing above the mass market brand average ...

Can't believe that Nissan is only 10th! Seriously! All my family drives those cars and my step dad had a Nissan Sunny for almost 25 years and it's still fine.

Well, yeah! Nissan is great, one of my favorite. But it doesn't mean they have a good service. Especially not in the states. I know that they don't provide shipping service and you have to search for a transport company.

Maybe that's how it used to be? Now an official Nissan dealer has the transport service as well. I think it's a bit more expensive than to hire a separate shipping company.

Maybe that's how it used to be? Now an official Nissan dealer has the transport service as well. I think it's a bit more expensive than hiring a separate shipping company. Especially if you need to transport your car to a small town. I had this discussion a few days ago on another car forum. A guy wasn't sure if he should hire a car shipping company or just rent a car and a tow dolly and do the job. Well, the second option is much cheaper, but I'm sure it may cause a lot of damage. A new car may get scratched and it will be all your fault. I checked a website How Does Auto Transport Work? | National Transport Services that my friend has recommended to me and it says that car shipping companies provide you insurance which is just great.
