The 2015 Malaysia Sales Satisfaction Index (SSI) Study is based on responses from 2,371 newvehicle owners in the mass market segment who purchased their vehicle between August 2014 and May 2015.

Overall sales satisfaction in the mass market segment averages 752 index points in 2015. In addition, Mitsubishi Motors scored 773 over 1000 points in an overall service satisfaction among mass market brands in the Customer Service Index (CSI) study, similarly conducted by J.D. Power Asia Pacific 2015. The 2015 Malaysia CSI study is based on responses from 2,812 new-vehicle owners who purchased their mass market brand vehicle between February 2013 and May 2014 and brought their vehicle for service in an authorized service centre between August 2014 and May 2015. The study was fielded between February and May 2015.
