Edmunds.com Announces Consumers' Most Wanted Awards for 2004

Toyota Prius Named Consumers' Choice for Most Significant Vehicle of the Year

SANTA MONICA, CALIF. - June 11, 2004 - Edmunds.com, the Internet's premiere resource for consumer automotive information, today announced the winners of the third annual Consumers' Most Wanted vehicle awards.

"Edmunds.com visitors regularly provide us and each other with feedback, so every year we ask them to vote for their Most Wanted Vehicles of the year," said Karl Brauer, Editor in Chief of Edmunds.com. "While there are quite a few agreements with the choices expressed in the Editors' Most Wanted vehicle awards, consumers heavily favored Japanese vehicles while we editors selected more European and domestic models."
