...This year's study asked 76,000 owners 90 days after purchasing their 2010 model-year cars "how gratifying their new vehicle is to own and drive." The answer, for the first time since 1997, was that the domestic brands were more "appealing" as a whole than the imports (the domestics earned a score of 787 on a 1,000-point scale – 13 points greater than the imports)...
Individual awards:

Subcompact: Honda Fit
Compact: MINI Cooper
Compact Sporty Car: Volkswagen GTI
Compact Premium Sporty Car: Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe
Entry-level Premium: BMW 3-series
Midsize Sporty Car: Chevrolet Camaro
Midsize Premium: BMW 5-series

(or one that could handle the fact that my car has more balls )

I'm surprised the Jeep is rated so high... mine is a piece of crap. But good for Chevy... they're racking up those awards and high rankings.

Wow. Toyota is bringing up the rear big time. Ouch.

I'm surprised at the import names below the average line.

Good for domestics. About time.

So Porsche ranks the highest for nameplate, but didn't get a single individual award for car types???? What do they like? just saying the word "Poor-Sha" ??

Yeah, Toyota got dumped on big time. Ahh, I feel so sorry for them.

Congrats GM

I've had mine for just over a year and it is still the best thing I have ever bought!! Heck, I still get excited seeing other Camaros around town.

Keep up the great work GM!!

I only have one complaint about my Camaro, and that is... about my hubby, because as wonderful as he is for washing my baby for me, he insists in changing the seat settings so he can get the "full effect" for the short time I allow him to drive it.

Then he refuses to return the seat to it's original position. It's not that hard, just push the button up and forward as far as it will go. It's such a when I get in and DROP a few exra inches when I'm not expecting it.
