Which of these best describes your car buying decisions?

While some people remain loyal to different countries’ auto brands, more folks seem to have found a higher allegiance: To the best deal available, regardless of brand or where it comes from. That was the top choice of 43 percent of readers in today’s Autobytel auto poll, which looked at consumer-buying preferences by brand origin. But of those who did have a geographically oriented approach to vehicle shopping, 29 percent stick with Japanese/Korean brands, while 17 percent go the patriotic route and shop only with the domestics; European brands brought up the rear, claiming only 9 percent of the voting.
