last month or quarter most imports went up while i think all except 1 domestic when down. bmw being the biggest winner i think.

imo, domestic manufacturers better smarten up quick and design better and higher quality cars. (had a cobalt as a rental for a month, then drove my brother's older hyundai accent. wow, the accent (being cheaper) was a much better ride and better quality in my opinion.)

^^So true. The Hyundai is a better car than most domestic cars.

I dissagree.... i think the Americans are finally starting to get it (at least GM). They're getting caught up with all the technical gadgets are the cars are starting to look pretty sexy (All Cadillac's, most Chevy's, Saturn's). I'm glad to see GM's doing better!

Hyundai is definitely a manufacturer that the big brands need to be worried about. I've driven a new Sonata and the new Entourage and both cars are on par with Detroit, and not that far off the Japanese. Hyundai also has them by the balls with their price. Pretty much the only thing still hurting them is their crappy brand image caused by the pieces of shit they used to produce.

Hahaha, ya i know exactly what your talking about. But in all honesty i'm noticing the exact same thing coming from the luxo brand euro/jap cars also. Seems like their starting to mimic the Americans. I hate the new BMW interiors... they just seem so cheap.

There has been a rumor that hyundai will be lunching a luxury brand to compete with acura and other company's higher end brands. Just like what Japanese brands have done before. we will see what will happen, but I do give them credite, I really like the styling of new sonata and its quality especially when honda have screwed up the accord sedans.

Maybe the new ones. But the older ones will always be sought after by collectors... The e30, e28, e34, e36, and more so the M models will keep the BMW attractive to enthusiasts. They aren't making any more of them, after all.

I have to agree North American manufacturers are starting to wake up.
They are starting to produce some fine looking vehicles.
