I was impressed with the Sonata at the auto show. On the other hand I was horrified by the Elantra and Accent...who buys those things? A/C is an 800 dollar option on those things...800 bucks.

Isn't it amazing how a companies PR department can dream up these headlines. " A new February sales record for Hyundai". They sold 74 more cars than last February. :stupid:

If I am not mistaken, they did sell more cars than last February or any February, for that matter. In other words, it is a monthly sales record. I am sure GM would be doing the same thing.

I know its a monthly sales record and GM would do the same thing, however it is funny that they only went up by 74 vehicles.

As a percentage, though. Doesn't GM sell, like a quarter million Impalas? Certainly a lot more than the Sonata! So what percentage of Sonatas end up on fleet lots?
