AutoWeek created the 24-question survey to allow the voters to identify their most preferred make/model for cars, trucks and SUV's. More than 7000 people responded to the "America's Best" survey entirely online, which ran from May 16th through June 6th.

"AutoWeek readers never fail to impress me," Dutch Mandel, editor and associate publisher, said. "Their in-depth and passionate knowledge of the car world is second to none while their savvy -- call it real street smarts -- is uncanny in its clarity."

"Although this was our first time conducting the survey online, I believe it will not be our last, because the information gathered from the voters is very valuable and really matters," added Mike Floyd, AutoWeek Online Editor.

The survey results will be the basis of a feature story in the July 1 issue of AutoWeek. Results will also be available online at beginning July 1, 2002.
