2014 GC Not In Top 20 Car Complaint Index

2014 Car Complaint Index

Thanks to consumer advocate Jack Gillis, author of the 2014 Car Book, and the efforts of the Center for Auto Safety, we are able to provide you with the Top 20 vehicle complaints on file with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Each year, thousands of Americans call their government to register complaints about their vehicles. The complaint index is based on a ratio of the number of complaints for each vehicle to the sales of that vehicle. The numbers represent relative index scores, not the number of complaints received. The complaint index score considers sales volume and years on the road. Lower index numbers are better. The Car Book is available for sale through The Center For Auto Safety if you are interested in purchasing a copy.

You'd think that based on what you see in this forum that it would be.

On these forums it seems like people like to fear monger. LoL. Every little thing people complain. Example: my wiper blade seems defective is there a recall? You get my drift.

Most of the complaints I've read on this site (including my own) are definitely more substantial than just defective wiper blades.

Be thankful your 2014 GC has been good for you, I wish mine was. I bet you'd think otherwise if your transmission was acting up in your new $45,000 vehicle.

Should have clarified it better. Didn't mean everybody. I'm sure I will be complaining about something soon.

So far so good, runs sweet at 6,700 miles. Instead of complaints I get nothing
but compliments.

Re: 2014 GC Not In Top 20 Car Complaint Index

And to add to Scott's comments...tens of thousands of JGCs come off the line. It's important to keep that in perspective when viewing individual complaints. That's not saying there haven't been some documented issues, but they don't necessarily affect the majority of buyers. It's a numbers game...

Ayup, and I'll be darned if I'll 'upgrade' to a Chevy Volt to get a better number.
