    How could this be?

    [​IMG]

    GM moved 9,320 Camaros in June, Ford moved 7,632 new/old Mustangs.

    [​IMG]

    Hyundai moved just 1,838 all-new Genesis cars.

    In fact both the Genesis sedan and coupe have basically flopped since they were introduced to America depsite all the hoopla in the media and online.

    And Hyundai doesn't even break down numbers between the sedan and coupe model making it's low sales number each month look even worse. Also in contract, GM sold 3,622 Pontiac G8s this past month, a car considered to be a slow seller from a heavily damaged brand.

    No shit, a brand-new car by a company trying to make a name for itself here is selling less than 2 models with decades of heritage here?

    Hyundai's already made a good name for themselves and enjoys nearly the same reputation as Honda and Toyota. The same can't be said for Ford and GM.

    I'm guessing it's because the Hyundai is a piece of import shit that only an emo faggot would drive. That's just a guess though.

    I want to see American business do great. I also want to see it say MADE IN USA. With well paid workers putting together a reliable product.

    I don't know about the Camaro, but I'm pretty sure the Mustang is built in the USA.

    All the comments I read online go about like this.

    "Hyundai = aZn = more betterer" "10 year/100k warranty = win" "Just wait until the tune that 210hp four cylinder!" "It's the best thing since the Supra/300ZX!"

    Fanboys were having us all believe it would be huge.

    And Hyundai wants to sell the Equus in the US next. That will go over about as well as the VW Phaeton. :rofl:

    It's funny how people will use the warranty and "tuneability" of this unproven 4 cyl in the same argument. :mamoru:

    Probably, only 443 people were silly enough to buy one in June.
