    Re: What make car do you have?

    Yes, "what make" is correct English. In the US, it's common to ask "what make and model is your car?" ("Make" would be, for example, Ford, and "model" would be "Escort.")

    For cell phones, you would probably inquire as to what "brand" someone wanted, even though "make" is still acceptable.
