Looks like Ford has top loyalty.....

Though Chevy is third behind Ford and Toyota I guess not bad....but Ford is way out in front....I would a thought Nissan would be the top, every person I've ever met who bought a Nissan is adamant they will never buy another brand....I think they lace crack into the floor mats or something...may be why they didn't list them, would of blown the rest out of the water....

The Mustang owners manual says to make sure that you sniff the floormats every day.

I was brought up on fords, but have a love for all American cars. I'm not happy with where Ford is at with it current line up( besides the F150 and Mustang) their cars IMO are ugly over priced turds. I will not be going back to Ford at the moment. Fixing to trade the Camaro and Mustang in on a new terrain or equinox. Thinking about taking my first step into a GM V8 by selling the truck for a G8 GT. can't decide if I should or not.

I have a love for anything that offers me a great car for a great price. I have no loyalty to any one brand of anything. My dad will not buy anything other then a Toyota, and my mom won't buy anything other then a Nissan. They think they are the most amazing things in the world. I personally don't get it, but whatever.

Ford is making some great cars and trucks these days. It shows especially in F series and Stangs.

If the latest Mustang refresh didn't look so goofy to me, I'd have bought one

Really? The lights are homage to the origional GTs/Bosses, there is nothing fishy in that, for fishy you need to look at the 98-02 Camaro catfish (which i actually liked).

ya I still don't think the lights belong there, and as to fish, the grill looks like a small mouth bass mouth to me, and the headlights just don't flow.

Maybe if they curved the top of the headlights, maybe flattened out the top grill similar to the bottom one, and didn't put a foot wide divider between them....

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a brand guy, I get, to the best of my ability, a vehicle that meets whatever criteria I have at the time and will last the longest and fits my price point..(though, to be honest, as I've owned Chevy, Dodge and Ford trucks in my past, I do have a huge leaning towards the F150, so I might have a branding in the truck department, not that I wouldn't get something else if it fit better, but I lean heavily towards the F150)..

so I'm not just down playing it cause its a "Ford", I just honestly don't like the front. I was looking at both the Mustang and the Camaro and just think the Camaro is the better looking vehicle.....

I will give points to the Mustang over the Camaro on the rear in some places though. I think the rear though still looking good, is the weak point on the Camaro if I have to be completely technical.

Proof we all have our own valid opinions. For me, the pointy plastic grill inside the squared off grill opening looks stupid. Other than that I quite like the Camaro. So for me, the Mustang has a better looking front end, and the '13 is better looking than my '12.

I am with you ^. The front of the Camaro is not that great but the rear end is.

I wonder what percentage of Ford loyalty is from trucks. Truck guys don't seem to switch much.

LOL ... everything that you people don't like about one of these cars are from the original . The lights on the mustang original and the 13s look sweet other years are nice too.. The camaro pointy front grill is original 60's. I have no problem with any of these cars looks . Sweet cars! I would have all three muscle cars if I could. but camaro all the way.

Sorry, but I find the current car's "pointy" front end a caricature of the original.

see, they do look alike. The front of the 60's camaro just look flatter . Well the front end that is. Not the grill . Well yea, we see the same. But a lot of the car is bigger and stands out more than the 60's Camaro
