Despite a truly amazing result buried in the press release for AutoPacific's latest customer-satisfaction survey — that the Hyundai Azera unexpectedly nailed top-car honors — the battle between GM and Toyota still pulled top billing. The Detroit-based consultancy found that among buyers of new luxury cars, Cadillac is the top rated premium/luxury brand for customer satisfaction. Cadillac also had the top rated entry luxury car, the CTS, though Lexus picked up top luxury car with its LS430. More results after the jump.
