HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS OCTOBER SALES

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., 11/01/2007 Hyundai Motor America’s popular Santa Fe and Sonata vehicles posted sales increases of 15 percent and 28 percent, respectively, for the month of October.

Wow, Entourage way down. Tucson way down. Elantra down, Sonata up <check your Dollar lots> but down so far for the year, Accent up slightly.

Sonata up <check your Dollar lots> but down so far for the year

Recall the article last month on the reason for Montgomery downtime. Either they force-fed dealers or fleeted them. I doubt 3,000 more people than usual saw the Sonata this month and said, "Wow, I'd really like to buy that hunk of junk."

Hyundai was supposed to be the 'next Toyota', claimed by analysts driving luxo SUV's. but they don't know how bad the cars really are. Sonatas are 1998 Accords leftover from Honda's reject pile.
