It’s always nice to know what the experts think. If we didn’t care about an informed opinion websites like consumerreports.org wouldn’t exist. But the truth is many of us read product reviews to get a general feel about an item but find our priorities stacked differently than the reviewer’s. Example: My Jeep Wrangler gets terrible gas mileage. Every review will tell you that. But, while I don’t enjoy paying more for fuel than necessary I love driving the thing and, on my list the fun-factor is ranked higher than fuel efficiency. Maybe, from a purely scientific viewpoint I miught be better off with a different vehicle. But in my heart I know the Wrangler suits me better than any other. That’s why consumer choice polls are just as, if not more important than expert opinion.
So, in the spirit of celebrating the multitude of immeasurables that factor into consumer choice, we are proud to announce nearly a third of the vehicles on the edmunds.com list of “Consumers’ Favorites: Best Cars for College Graduates” are brands Butler Auto Group sells. They are:
2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe
2012 Ford Mustang
2012 Kia Optima
2013 Ford Escape
2012 Hyundai Tucson
2012 Kia Sportage
And, since Butler was a Suzuki dealership until the company filed for bankruptcy and pulled out of the North American market last year, we feel compelled to mention that the Suzuki Kizashi also made the list.
