Some of the media loves a certain car so much that the car is automatically associated with them when you hear it. So which car applies to which website/mag and why?
I’d say the Accord is automatically identifiable with Car and Driver. Sure, the 3 Series can also be applied, but C&D has given all US built Accords a 10Best award, even when Honda churned out some iffy Accords.
And of course, Jalopnik with brown manual diesel RWD wagons/Miatas/Volvo bricks.
