Widewail’s first annual Voice of the Customer Report dives deep into the minds of today’s automotive customers. The report utilizes Widewail’s extensive dataset combined with free text sentiment analysis to tell dealers exactly what makes customers happy or unhappy in their own words, at an industry-wide scale
The Widewail team is proud to announce the publication of our first annual Voice of the Customer Report. For this report, we analyzed the topics in and sentiment of 800,000 Google reviews from the Widewail Automotive Reputation Index to isolate what actually compels dealership customers to leave a good or bad review.
The VOC Report uncovers why staff are the leading driver of reviews, the top factors influencing negative reviews, and how service departments can improve. In a special Electric Vehicle segment, we learn why EV customers aren’t as happy as the average customer and why DTC EV customers' reviews have the lowest sentiment of all.
The report’s findings are distilled into digestible insights and filled with advice on maximizing positive reviews and minimizing negatives. Any GM, dealership digital manager or local business marketer can use it as a foundation for reputation and business strategy in 2024.
