… a person I will announce after the jump.

First, here are some stats from all your nominations.

You nominated …

  • 165 different vehicles for Ten Best, not including derivatives.
  • 174 different vehicles for Ten Worst, not including derivatives, entire brands (of which there were many nominations), technologies (lookin’ at you, diesel) and platforms.
  • 12 of you nominated the Jeep Compass for Ten Worst.
  • 15 of you nominated the Jeep Patriot for Ten Worst, and one of your nominated it for Ten Best.
  • Products made by companies that were either part of the former Diamond Star Motors alliance or DaimlerChrysler locked out the six top spots of Ten Worst. One of them is the Dodge Journey … but it isn’t the top pick.
  • Sportscars took three of the top five spots in Ten Best.
  • There are only two FCA vehicles in the Top 20 Best autos. Yes, one of them is a Hellcat and the other one is a Jeep.

And the moment you’ve all been waiting for …

Daniel Latini, you are now $100 richer. We will email you shortly.

    The smart car may be junk, I've never driven it. But I just got back from Europe, and they are everywhere in Rome and Paris. Everywhere. Something to be said, I guess, for a car that can be parked perpendicular to the curb. On the other side of the quality coin, you'll never find a city with more Teslas than Oslo. They even use them for taxis there.

    Is there any fancy macro/algorithm/filter to identify which person either picked all 20 right; or the highest number picked correctly? I'd find that interesting.

    It is not the critic who counts; not the weasel who points out how the designing or engineering man stumbles, or how the assembler of cars could have built them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena... on that factory floor, whose face is marred by dust and grease and sweat and blood; whose mind is flying on eleven different herbs and spices, who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause: the contemporary automobile... who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid Kings of the Keystroke, who neither know victory nor defeat.

      Saturn A different kind of company. A different kind of car.

    "12 of you nominated the Jeep Compass for Ten Worst." How is that possible? Only 12 of us nominated that shit box? I thought it was going to win the whole thing.
