According to the industry experts, these data released by authorized agencies will help the customers to make smart choices and informed decision. “Studies conducted by us reveal this fact. Customers who were over-promised on mileage developed dissatisfaction that was four times higher than customers who were promised the actual mileage. So, the resultant transparency actually boosts the brand image of the car manufacturer,” said Mohit Arora, senior director of Singapore-based JD Power and Associates.
