We recently released the 2018 Temkin Experience Ratings (TxR) that ranks the customer experience of 318 companies across 20 industries based on a survey of 10,000 U.S. consumers. TxR is based on consumers evaluating their experiences across three dimensions: success, effort, and emotion.

Congratulations to Toyota and Honda for delivering the best customer experience across auto dealers.

Of the 18 auto dealers included in this year’s Ratings, Toyota earned the highest score with a rating of 73%, putting it in 95th place overall out of 318 companies across 20 industries. Honda came in second place with a score of 72% and overall rank of 109th. Two other auto dealers received a “good” rating – Ford and Mercedes-Benz. Both of these companies received a score of 70% and placed 137th overall.

Overall, the auto dealer industry averaged a 66% rating in the 2018 Temkin Experience Ratings and tied for 12th place out of 20 industries. The average rating of the industry declined by three percentage-points between 2017 and 2018, dropping from 68.6% to 65.6%.
