It's not clear whether Matthew McConaughey's commercials have anything to do with swaying customer opinion, but a nationwide survey of nearly 4,000 people regarding 24 major car brands has found that Americans love their Ford Lincolns the most, 24/7 Wall St. reports. An American Customer Satisfaction Index press release for the 2016 report, released at the end of last month, notes that mass-market vehicles are catching up to luxury brands in terms of customer satisfaction. As for American brands, they still lag behind imports, but a number of domestic brands boosted their satisfaction scores this year. Here, the top five car brands:

  • Ford Lincoln; ACSI rating: 87
  • Honda; 86
