None. I am sorry. I do not exist to the carmakers anymore.

Same boat here, 98R, from total GM loyalist to 'None's across the board. Still leaning towards a few European makes now that GM doesn't make traditional American cars.

I'm assuming this is hypothetical, since I'd sure as heck would consider a Lamborghini, but you know, I doubt I could ever afford one. :P

Added Fiat.

So far we have

T1. Chevrolet (12)

T1. Ford (12)

#3. Subaru (10)

T4. Buick (8)

T4. Volkswagen (8)

T6. Cadillac (7)

T6. BMW (7)

:o Chevy and Ford are now tied! Rainier is the traitorous swine who voted Ford and not Chevy! Let's go get the bag of rotten tomatoes! XD

Subaru doesn't surprise me, but I would have thought that BMW would be further up the list.

I voted realistically, so no super-exotics were included. Jag, BMW, MB, and Audi are about the highest I would go.

I voted and just noticed the only brand associated with GM I picked is being sold off. Isn't that a shame. I'm becoming more and more a fan of Ford. Seems to be only American company that knows what it's doing.

So there are only 2 members who voted for any American brand at all that did not vote for Chevrolet. I guess that confirms GM's idea that they can appeal to everyone....
