Autoblog.NL poll

UPDATE III: The Mercedes and BMW fans are striking back. Here’s how the top half of the poll looks right now, after the Saab enjoyed a healthy 500 vote lead a few days ago.

If you haven’t voted yet, then please go cast your vote – the poll is in the right sidebar – and let’s show these suckers we mean business!


Web polls are all about the people having their say in the question at hand.

The website:

The question: What is the Autoblog car of the year for 2010?

The situation: The Saab 9-5 is doing commendably, but could probably use a little help if you feel so inclined. The poll is in the right sidebar of the website.

The poll is unofficial and the result is purely superficial, but if a high-ish finish for the Saab 9-5 opens up just one person’s eyes, then it’s a good thing, eh?

  1. Done! Interesting the Jag XJ and Audi1 both lagging the table.

    Also voted for 9-4x in What Car’s ‘exciting car for 2011’ as well as logging a 5star owner’s review for the 9-5…..

  2. Just voted. We’re way in the lead now guys ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha we totally rocked that vote. 762 votes / 26% was something like 300 votes ahead of second place. Are we sure they all came from this site though? Or do people that don’t visit this site world-wide really think the 9-5 is the best? I think that’s the case too.

  3. Voted at home last night, was #106 for the 9-5 which was 5th. Just voted again this morning from work, I’m #790 and the closest (Merc SLS AMG) is at 466 votes. Good job people…

  4. I really want to think that this is the result of an active SAAB community. In the long term I hope that this will help SAAB to grow with the publicity we can bring them with winning polls like this. Lets keep on voting and bring another win to the 9-5! =)

    • Well. I voted on my iPad, my iPhone, my office PC, my home PC. Now what? Perhaps I should go into the local Apple store; they must have close to a hundred Macs, and Ipads, all hooked up to the Internet. Maybe I’ll just go from one to the other.

      • Originally it’s ‘Distributed Denial of Service’ (and written as DDoS, with the small ‘o’),
        but in this context, poetic freedom is allowed. ๐Ÿ™‚
        We’re 1200 votes ahead at the moment, so it won’t be necessary to use DDoS.

  5. The merc is stalled at 1524ish. The voter(s) must have gone for dinner. Strike now while they’re not looking.

    • I discovered that everytime I changed the page translation language in Google translate, it would bring up a fresh ballot. So I voted in Welsh, Urdu, Finnish, Yiddish, and about 50 other languages.

    • Shhhh, that wouldn’t be fair….unless of course the bimmer and merc folks have figured this out as well. Let’s just assume they have….better safe than sorry ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Did the ‘remove cookies and refresh’ game for a while. Saab 9-5 now well ahead with 2400 votes, yeah. It does offend my sense of fairness a bit, but hey, what the heck!

  7. When i tried to vote, saab was not among the alternatives i could choose from.. I used explorer. Is this an exlorer-bug? I hade to change to an other web browser to cast my vote?

    • Let’s not allow another sneak attack by the AMG gang. I’ll be monitoring the poll a few times a day and I’ll post if I notice anything. If you all do the same, we should be safe.

      The definition of brand loyalty and passion: SAAB

  8. actually there is an easier way, open the link up in an incognito window(private browsing) in chrome or any other browser and you can vote as many times as you want, no need to clean cookies
