Default Cars cheaters drive

http://jalopnik.com/5901353/these-ar...ium=socialflow

The results help prove a point for the CEO of the website — that cheaters are regular people. They're Dick and Jane Smith. "Cars can represent a lifestyle, denote financial success and show personality but our survey clearly proves that people having affairs are everyday people," says Noel Biderman, AshleyMadison.com's CEO, in a statement.

Anyway, here's the full breakout — by gender:

MEN
1. Toyota (20.9%)
2. Ford (12.3%)
3. Chevy (10.2%)
4. Honda (7.1%)
5. BMW (6.4%)
6. Dodge (5.8)
7. Nissan (4.8%)
8. Jeep (4.8%)
9. GMC (3.2%)
10. Mercedes (2.9%)

WOMEN
1. Honda (22.3%)
2. Ford (13.4%)
3. Toyota (10.3%)
4. Chevy (7.3%)
5. Mercedes (6.6%)
6. Nissan (5.6%)
7. Chrysler (4.3%)
8. Dodge (4.2%)
9. BMW (3.9%)
10. Volkswagen (2.8%)

It is worth noting that BMW did break the top five for men — one of only two luxury brands to even make the top ten. Which again provides further ammunition for that most notable of stereotypes about BMW drivers. You know the one I'm talking about.

Subaru owners must be faithful and loyal, I guess.

So the brands that sell the most cars tend to top this list, huh? Possibly the stupidest thread ever.

Not useful unless it's divided by the % of those brands in general. You need to turn it into an index, where anything > 1.0 indicates "more likely to be driven by cheaters" and anything < 1.0 means less likely...

Just another biased poll create by some bored idiot. I hate people that manipulate numbers to get the results they want.

Does this poll take into account the fact that their or a LOT more Toyotas on the road then Mercedes? Of course Toyota is going to be higher up. You would probably get the same result if it was a poll on murderers, gamblers, smart phone owners, tv watchers etc etc etc. As long as the thing differentiating them isn't income then the results will pretty much be this.
