Are car buyers wedded to certain brands any more? In a week in which Volkswagen and Audi's reputations are mired in scandal, it's an interesting time to ask. Especially since they came first and fourth in a new poll of brand loyalty by digital marketing gurus Rocket Fuel. They found the most loyal car buyers in Britain are:

1) Audi 61% buy another Audi
2) Mercedes-Benz 56%
3) Alfa Romeo 51%
4) Volkswagen 41%

At the other end of the spectrum, researchers found Hyundai (15% brand loyalty), Mazda (17% retention) and Fiat (22% repeat purchase) had the poorest customer loyalty, as customers increasingly shop around and try out new marques with each purchase.
