#15SecondsOfDrama Contest Winner Video

We at Cars.com hate drama when it comes to car shopping — but we loved it when it came to our #15SecondsOfDrama contest in which entrants shot drama-packed videos to compete for $35,000 toward a new car. Sherri from Western Arkansas best demonstrated her flair for the dramatic, earning a visit from Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays to help her select the best new car for her needs. Watch the video and see what she chose.

It was never explained why you only looked at vehicles around $22K, when she won $35K towards a new car.


Was wondering about the same thing....

She chose a SONIC?!?! over the Civic and Soul??? Are they even in the same class? I thought the Sonic was the smallest of the three? Maybe the $35k prize includes tax, title, license and insurance, future repair bills, and a few years worth of gas?


She said she like the Soul's roominess, yet picked the subcompact Sonic sedan over the compact Civic...


The Sonic hatchback looks nice, but the Sonic sedan just looks cheap. I would have went with the Soul for the looks, warranty and interior space. Oh well...


After paying federal and state income taxes on a $35,000 prize, you are probably only left with 70% or so of the total. May be somewhat more or less depending on her other income. Probably why she looked at cars in the $22,000 range.

Seems like a great choice. Enjoy that new car!
