I think the films actually made a pretty decent case against the companies that didn't want to be involved. I don't know if Chevrolet's poster child rose in sales after 07, but it's a great form of publicity regardless.

I understand where there's limitations in car company relationships when it comes to names [ie naming a car of your brand "Breakdown" would be like soliciting a Hot Dog named "Juicy Dick on Bun"], but licenses like these are pretty good advertisement mediums.
