IntelliChoice’s BOVY awards represent the oldest and most recognized automotive data analysis focused solely on identifying vehicles that will cost significantly less to own than other vehicles in their respective class.
Announcing the winners of IntelliChoice’s 14th annual ranking of 2013 Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) manufacturer-sponsored programs. For the sixth straight year, Volvo took the top ranking among Premium manufacturers, while Hyundai won for the best Popular program for the second year in a row.

IntelliChoice issues the industry’s only report card for Certified Pre-Owned vehicles and many manufacturers have developed their programs using the IntelliChoice.com inspection and ranking criteria as benchmarks.
The Motorist Choice Awards were designed by AutoPacific and IntelliChoice to recognize the cars and trucks that delivered both the highest customer satisfaction and the lowest total cost of ownership. The awards take AutoPacific’s car owner satisfaction survey data from new car and truck buyers and combine that vehicle research data with IntelliChoice’s proprietary car cost of ownership rating methodology to create a new kind of award that speaks to both the hearts and wallets of car buyers.
