The average SSI score is 3 points higher this year compared to last year. Car manufacturers may be putting extra effort to ensure their customers are satisfied, especially during these times of a lower Total Industry Volume.

The biggest increase in satisfaction is in the area of delivery timing. The “national” brands (Proton, Perodua, Naza and Inokom) have improved by an average of 6 points, however they still trail the non-national brand average by 16 points. This gap is closer compared to 2008 though, where it was a 29 point difference.
