Top 20 Car Brands Consumers Love

Love is in the air this month, and that affection includes what car brands consumers feel best about.

Our friends at Consumer Reports recently revealed the results of their 2013 Car Brand Perception Survey to see how consumers felt about different car brands when it came to seven factors: quality, safety, value, performance, design, technology, and environmentally friendly.

So who stole the the most hearts? Toyota ranked #1, followed by Ford and Honda. Check out the full list below to see how each brand ranked, and as always, I recommend you use the free RydeShopper to get the biggest discounts on these brands when you're ready to buy.

TrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area.
