Yeah, you can never have too many McLarens. I'd say them and Honda. After that...perhaps Ferrari, Toyota, and Mazda.

After driving my first car, an Accord, to 194,000 miles and still being able to get a grand out of it easy on resale, Honda's my fav. Immediately bought an Insight after.

Let's see... It's probably worthy of mockery but Hyundai/Kia have been looking really good lately. The 2011 Sonata and the new Optima are gorgeous, and they cost so damned little it's crazy. Not to mention no horror stories about performance. I like Tesla 'cause they're doing good things. After that I guess... Infiniti and BMW.

Not sure about my top 5, but McLaren makes it for the F1 alone.

Cool idea. My list is based on engineering and contribution to the auto industry with respect to innovation.

Toyota - kazen & lean production
Mercedes Benz - safety, implementing new technology, patients (e.g. weight reduction on bolts)
Tesla - proof that electric vehicles are feasible and the way of the future / now

I can't think of 2 others, will edit when I can.

Ford would have been an obvious one with respect to the moving production line but in retrospect it has not been the best method for a variety of reasons (cost, inventory mismanagement, labour relations).

As someone who is not in anyway a car person (I've driven tractors more than cars.....), I've always liked Triumph. I'm pretty sure my first vehicle purchase will be a Triumph TR6. Not terribly expensive, not seen everywhere, and just amazing to look at. (BMW 2002 is also in my mind)
