Volkswagen Tops's Top 10 Most-Researched Vehicles List

October 8, 2008
2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S

2009 Volkswagen Rabbit S yesterday announced its Top 10 Most-Researched Vehicles list for the third quarter of 2008. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered car shoppers, who make up the Web site's demographic, continued to show favor for Volkswagen models, keeping the Rabbit and the Eos in first and second place, respectively. The list is based on Web site statistics gathered from July 1, 2008, to September 30, 2008, from's New Car section.

The Mazda3 yielded its third-place spot to sister car MX-5, which now shares the bronze with Audi’s A3. There was another tie on the list for fourth place, between the Mazda3 and Volkswagen Jetta; the spot for 6th place was a tie between the Saab 9-3 and Dodge Caliber, and 9th was a tie between the Toyota Matrix and the Mini Cooper.

Out of 10 slots and four ties, there was only one domestic vehicle that made the cut: the Dodge Caliber. While it doesn't seem surprising that image and quality-conscious gays and lesbians cotton to brands like Volkswagen, Audi, Saab, Volvo, MINI, and even Maserati, the random Dodge Caliber that tied for sixth is a non sequitur. Maybe it’s the availability of that vehicle’s six-pack-cooling glove box? (The gays do not drink room-temperature Diet Coke).
