Strategic Vision has released their annual Total Quality Awards and the 2008 Corvette Convertible won the “Convertibles over $30,000” class besting 3 models from Mercedes-Benz and the BMW Z4 Roadster with a score of 940. This is the second year in row that the Corvette Convertible has won this class, and like last year, finished second overall behind the 950 scored by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Luxury Sedan. The score represents new vehicle owner satisfaction.
The top 5 of the Convertibles over $30,000:
- Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (940)
- Mercedes-Benz SL (939)
- Mercedes-Benz CLK Cabriolet (909)
- BMW Z4 Roadster (907)
- Mercedes-Benz SLK Roadster (891)
A number of prominent 2008 cars were not included in the results as Strategic Vision claims that the sample size of respondents for a specific model was not sufficient to be included.
Quality and owner satisfaction are two hallmarks of the latest generation of Corvettes. This year’s total quality index score of 940 is up 10 points over 2007’s quality score of 930.
Chevrolet also scored a class win in large pickups with two models tying for the top class score. The Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 and the Silverado 1500 both had a total qaulity index score of 880.
