You know, you'd think a car that was a Park Avenue, Town Car, S-Type, and E-Class all in one would sell at least as well as all four of those combined.

Hmmm...let's see...

LeSabre - almost outsold the Amanti for this calendar year. A dead car.

Outsold in April by the GTO, SKY, Terraza, S2000, SC430, and the new Passat wagon!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Maybe the much better Azera stole some Amanti buyers.

I'm curious about the Amanti's future. Isn't the next-gen or replacement due soon?
