• "If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up:" Porsche Tops Most Highly Recommended Vehicles List

Just as Ferris Bueller highly recommended Ferrari, marketing research firm AutoPacific found that an amazing 91 percent of Porsche owners would recommend the brand to others.

"Typically, car buyers are very pleased when they first drive their new car off the dealer lot. But just as a vehicle’s worth depreciates over time, some car owners’ level of confidence depreciates," says George Peterson, president of AutoPacific. "We have quantified their level of confidence to see which new car owners will recommend their model most and this is information which will help new car shoppers make informed, confident buying decisions. While many owners can be happy with their new cars, it takes another level of confidence to recommend it."

As far as specific models go, the Infiniti G37 garnered the highest percentage with a recommendation level of 95 percent of new owners. The truck with the highest overall satisfaction score is the Ford F-150 recommended by 89% of its owners. In a tie, the SUVs with the highest overall satisfaction score are the GMC Yukon XL and Honda CR-V recommended by 93% of their owners.

What I would like the AutoPacific to do is to check which car will not be surely recommended by the car owner and why. So this will help more car manufacturer to improve their line up

What makes Infinity highly recommendable? The current generation of the G features standard dual front airbags, front row knee airbags, front and rear side curtain airbags, and front side torso airbags. It was rated "Acceptable" by the IIHS. However, an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Status Report, released in 2007, ranked the 2003-4 Infiniti G35 as the safest car in the Luxury Mid-size category and the second safest vehicle Overall, based on its observed fatal-accidents rate

The Infiniti G is an entry-level luxury car / mid-size car and coupe produced by Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti. The first two generations of the Infiniti G (P10 and P11) were based on the Nissan Primera and were originally compact executive cars, while the third generation (V35) of the Infiniti G were based on the sportier Nissan Skyline platform. In its latest version (V36) the Nissan FM platform used for the 2nd gen G cars has shared components with the Infiniti M and also underpins the 350Z and the Infiniti FX models.

Well Porsche sure does it. That level of confidence in fact can be translated into the buying power of the public in terms of selecting a realiable car.
