MEME: Sunday Seven -- Episode 99

Patrick must be thinking of getting a new car, more befitting his station in life. He says, “America and its cars: as much as they cost these days, I supposed we’re justified to feel a certain pride in the models we buy. But where does your brand loyalty lie? Chevy or Ford? Cadillac or Dodge?”

“But first, though Julie was first to leave a comment, she didn’t leave a link to the specific post in which she answered the questions, so the rules dictate that the second commenter, Otowi of “Otowi” must be declared the first to play last week’s question. Congratulations!”

“On to this week’s question!”

Name the seven makes (not models) of cars you are most likely to buy.

  1. Honda

  2. Toyota

  3. Volkswagon

  4. Chevrolet

  5. Scion

  6. Nissan

  7. Subaru

My answers aren't just blowing smoke; I own three of those seven brands I listed, plus one other not listed. For my money, Honda is the most reliable of any manufacturer's vehicles on the road, seconded by Toyota and Nissan. We've been in the market for a new vehicle over the past year or so, and have considered available brands, etc. My wife prefers the Volkswagon and I the Subaru. We ended up buying the “blimpmobile,” a used Chevy Suburban, because we wanted something we could haul lots of stuff in, plus a travel trailer, in addition to the dog (almost as big as a trailer herself).
