“Autobarn are still unwavering in the top position for customer satisfaction in the Auto store category, helped by marginally stronger satisfaction levels coming from customers living in Victoria.
“Repco have slowly increased satisfaction levels of their customers over the last 12 months. This is a commendable improvement from their satisfaction average of 80% from 2008. However they are still a solid four percentage points behind Autobarn.
“Supercheap Auto continues to trail behind major competitors Repco and Autobarn, having only maintained the same satisfaction result for the last 12 months, which is still a full three percentage points behind the December 2009 peak in their satisfaction levels.”
