Consumers surveyed for the YouGovPolimetrix BrandIndex were asked to rate everything from cable channels to search engines in terms of bang for the buck. It's not so much a scientific study as it is an opinion poll, and among the department stores and search engines, automakers were also rated. Among the domestic carmakers, General Motors claims both the best and the worst, with HUMMER rated the worst bang for the buck while Chevrolet was rated positively. Toyota was among the top ten of all brands rated, demonstrating consumers ongoing love for their Camrys, but before we end up with a dogmatic flamewar in the comments, remember that this is just an opinion poll with an buzzword-tastic name.

      Yippie a self-fulfilling perception poll.

      "Does [Brand X] give good value for what you pay?" was the question.

      This is just silly. So Hummer rated last. Does Hummer give good value for a commuter car, in city traffic going to the office everyday by yourself? No

      Does Hummer give good value for buying a off-road, good-timing, recreational vehicle? Yeah-buddy.

        so...the human race has elected you to decide what vehicles we want?
        Before you say that nobody wants one, maybe you should see how many are driving around.
        And yes, if you want a car that you can have fun off road with and tow your boat to the lake on saturday, and then drive to work in relative luxury and comfort in on monday, Hummer does offer great value for money. Period.
