    Lets not forget about this self-driving crap and electric vehicles stuff that is gonna haunt us in the next century or so.

    electric cars will eat v8 muscle cars alive due to the amt of torque they produce... the family sedan segment is dying due to the rise of CUVs and light trucks... and with healthy economy we've had, companies are bringing back their sports cars.. but most of them will have some hybrid or electric powertrains

    Don't forget cheap fuel. When the price of gas is 2.50 or less a gallon SUVs sell like hot cakes. When the price is 3.50 or more, sales start dropping off.

    The auto companies make more money selling useless crap on them, than they do for the whole damn vehicle. They don't make a lot on something like a Volt, or a Prius, or a Smart 2 four. They make it on pick ups, Suburbans, Expeditions, and other huge Urban Assault Vehicles.

    Thank God Honda and Acura doesn't have anything remotely similar to an Armada, Tahoe, Escalade, Navigator, QX80, Silverado, Sierra, etc. Plus, sedans and coupes are the best vehicles out there, and probably the best family vehicles too (unless you are lugging around 5 large donkey kong sized suitcases in the trunk (boot for our homies across the pond)). Totally cannot wait to see gas prices fluctuate more so that sedan sales will boom once again, and the accord (and tlx) will take over the competition. :henry::rotflmao:

    the only reason why gas is cheap now is that the US is producing a lot more than before... but tht can't sustain for the long run...

    as for why companies sell electric cars despite losing money on them is due to a law passed by Obama that requires car manufacturers to hit a certain mpg across their lineup... however, the market is shifting towards electric cars and we will see more due to 2 reasons... lower costs due to economies of scale and better infrastructure aka more charging stations

    Don't forget the gov't rebates for buying electric. That knocks off 4 grand to the buyer.
