Each quarter, Gaywheels.com publishes a list of their Top 10 Most Researched Vehicles, and the latest data is in, providing a market indicator for the most popular cars in the Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) community.

The Toyota Yaris remained the most searched car among Gaywheels.com community, while the Saab 9-3 edged out the Toyota Camry for the number two spot. While the list, which is based on web traffic and not on purchases, is self-perpetuating to an extent, newcomers like the Volkswagen Rabbit and Toyota Corolla have made it into the #7 and #9 slots. Perhaps the most surprising car on the list is the Dodge Caliber, which garnered controversy for perceived gay-bashing humor in a television commercial.

Gaywheels.com points out that all the cars in the Top 10 are produced by "gay-friendly" automakers, thus assessed by their manufacturer's provision of spousal benefits to same-sex partners of employees.

For the full list, follow the jump.

      The only thing I can think is that because many of us live in the heart of cities we need small cars. I have never been to that website. My car isn't even on the list. Mini Cooper S

      Every car on this list fits my stereotype of a liberal, gay/lesbian, ultra-green LOSER! Not one of them is actually a nice car.

      NO gay person CARES about gaywheels... here's an analogy to help you realize:
      gaywheels:gays::al sharpton:blacks

      Being gay doesn't affect what you drive... the only major difference is that gay people tend to have more disposable income. Gay people buy stuff that's trendy, not stuff that supposedly says 'gay.'

      Want to drive a 'gay' car? Go for a Acura, Audi, BMW, Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes Benz, Volvo, VW.

      I'm gay and I wouldn't drive any of these cars!

        Making blanket statements and generalizations always turns up wrong. What I mean is: this list doesn't mean anything, and anyone (gay or otherwise) that buys something just cause everyone else is a sheep.

      I am a lesbian and I love my VW Beetle. Too bad they don't come in hybrids.

      What no Ford's? Ford was bashed for gay friendly adverts. yet not Ford's on the list.

      What, no Subarus?

      I'm just glad to see the Miata isn't #1.

      As a senior citizen (Im 73) and a lezbian I applaud Ford's decision to advertise in GLBT magazines. They are not on the list as the list is only 10 vehicles long. I own a 1992 Taurus SHO and I have been happy with my car since I got it 15 years ago.

      I'm straight-but I's buy the 4 door Yaris the second it hit US shores, but we get stuck with the flaccid 2 door version. I despise the new Camry, preferred the old ones, used to own the Jetta, very rich interiors.

      Hey #12, did Jesus also make you renounce punctuation? Back to the gays and cars, is there another study on motorbikes? Because that would make for some interesting stereotyping, er sorry, reading.
