What about something like:
Dim current As String = DataGridView1.Rows(0).Cells(0).Value
 
For i As Integer = 1 To Me.DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1   ' change DataGridView1 to the name of your DG
    If row.Cells(i).Value.ToString() = current Then
        row.Cells(i).Value = String.Empty
    Else
        current = row.Cells(i).Value.ToString()
    End If
Next

My mistake. The indexer was on the wrong variable. Use the code below instead. You will need to change the Cells(0) to Cells(x) where x is the column index of your vehichle manufacturere name.
Dim current As String = DataGridView1.Rows(0).Cells(0).Value
 
For i As Integer = 1 To Me.DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1   ' change DataGridView1 to the name of your DG
    If row(i).Cells(0).Value.ToString() = current Then
        row(i).Cells(0).Value = String.Empty
    Else
        current = row(i).Cells(0).Value.ToString()
    End If
Next

If we change your Sql a bit, we can probably solve that issue:

    select * from brand,model where Brand.BrandID=Model.BrandID order by Brand.Brand

Now your list returned from the DB will be something like:
    Honda           CRV
    Honda           Civic
    Honda           Accord
    Toyota          Corrola
    Toyota          Titan

And the previous code I posted will not need to changed.

I understand. What I am saying is that the query will return data in a format similar to my last post. After you add the data to your DataGridView, it will still look like it does in my last post. This is where you run the code I originally posted to run through each row and hide the repeated Brands.

Put the code inside the DataBindingComplete handler for the DataGridView:
Private Sub dataGridView1_DataBindingComplete(object sender, DataGridViewBindingCompleteEventArgs e) Handles dataGridView1.DataBindingComplete
    Dim current As String = DataGridView1.Rows(0).Cells(0).Value
 
    For i As Integer = 1 To Me.DataGridView1.Rows.Count - 1   ' change DataGridView1 to the name of your DG
        If row(i).Cells(0).Value.ToString() = current Then
            row(i).Cells(0).Value = String.Empty
        Else
            current = row(i).Cells(0).Value.ToString()
        End If
    Next
End Sub
