(Lowell Michigan) February 5, 2021 - Zeigler Ford of Lowell has been awarded a DealerRater's 2021 Consumer Satisfaction award for the first time. The DealerRater Consumer Satisfaction Awards are given to the top 10% of U.S. new-car dealers as well as independent and Canadian dealerships that earn at least 25 reviews and maintain a minimum average review rating of 4.0 out of 5.0 during the 2020 calendar year.

The Zeigler Auto Group dealer currently holds an impressive 5-star rating; but even more remarkable is the dealer's 100% recommend rate on its 242 lifetime reviews -- meaning of all the ratings received, every single reviewer recommends the dealer, earning them an "Excellent" designation on the review site.

"Delivering a customer experience that meets shifting shopper expectations - especially in today's stay-at-home economy - is critical to a dealership's success. And we saw overwhelmingly positive consumer reviews on our platform over the past year as dealers transformed into digital-first car sellers," said Jamie Oldershaw, general manager of DealerRater. 

"Our Dealer of the Year Award winners represent local dealers across North America who strived for excellence in 2020 and leveraged their superior customer experience in the form of reviews as a differentiator to get ahead of the competition," he continued.
