    Choosing the perfect car can involve significant research as you look at pricing, features, and safety. A savvy shopper might factor in a model’s reliability. But wouldn’t it be great if you could find out how happy car buyers are with their vehicles?

    You can, because each year Consumer Reports asks members about their car purchases. They provide great insights by answering one question: If you had it to do all over again, would you definitely buy or lease the same model?
