    What's the deal with Suzuki being up 40% for December but down 38% for the year? I am a regular visitor to this site and don't recall any mention of any possible cause for this.

      If that VW tie up dosn't bear fruit soon... I think Suzukis are seriously underrated, but at only 2X Porsche volume, things look grim.

    I wonder if Nissan is pissed at Hyundai. I figure they'll be losing that lead by March. Man, those Koreans are on a tear!

      Honda (and eventually Toyota) have to be scared too as Hyundai used to be 1/4 Honda sales and are about 1/2 now.
