Smart, number seven – Tied with Hyundai (same overall score of 783), Smart sells the Smart Fortwo and recently introduced the Smart Fortwo electric drive. Not really appropriate for family transportation, unless it's for a commuter for one person.
Volkswagen, number eight – Volkswagen’s 2010 best-selling products were the compact Jetta sedan and mid-size CC. And they're both good family cars.
Ford, number nine – The Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker’s top sellers last year were the Ford F-Series Pickup, mid-size Fusion and compact Focus passenger cars, and compact Escape SUV. Always plenty of good family transportation choices from the blue-oval.
Honda, number ten – Best-selling Honda products in 2010 were the mid-size Accord and compact Civic passenger cars and CR-V compact crossover. Of course, there's the Honda name and reliability. Enough said.
