The award strives to be a complete measure of the total quality of the ownership experience, using surveys about even the tiniest details, including reliability, driving excitement, engine noise, seat material, and general performance.
Strategic Vision describes the award as “the complete, holistic measure of experience that encompasses positive and negative product experience, including reliability, driving excitement, and other aspects of dealership experiences – all energized by the emotional response associated with the experiences.”
Strategic Vision gave the CX-9 the Total Quality Impact Award because it met or exceeded expectations with fantastic performance and a luxury interior.te
