      "Leave domestic biases at the door before posting."

      Yeah, and bring in Japanese biases, instead *Sarcasm*

      I own a Mazda3 GT and I love Japanese cars but I'm a car lover at the end of the day and I appreciate good cars from all countries. More American cars deserve to be on the list. Heck, even more diverse Japanese cars (Suby, Mazda, Nissan) deserve to be on the list.

      Toyota/Honda...sheesh...is American taste plain vanilla or what?

      Hey #2,

      Theres a rumor that The 'Big 3' are losing Big ground to the imports. Maybe there's a connection there somewhere?

      Must be the "liberal media" poisoning our minds again!

      I don't believe it's so much that Americans who don't use the internet prefer American cars, or any other conclusion like that.

      This is one particular website. A bad one, at that -- I've never liked PriceGrabber for anything. I'll say people with American bias are more likely to hit up AutoTrader.

      When the worst thing you can say about a car is that it's "too common" it's probably time to buy one if you like the way it fits you and the way it drives.

      Back in 1955 when the all-new Chevy was redesigned, there were new Chevys everywhere within a few months--so common that there was nothing exclusive about them. But they were GOOD CARS for their time and being common didn't matter.

      Those of us who own Hondas and Toyotas don't give a crap who thinks our cars are common because we know they're good, and so do those people who pay top dollar for used ones.

      We buy Accords, Civics, Camrys, and Corollas because they're good, not because they're exclusive.

      If you want to be exclusive, join a private club and eat lunch with the like-minded. Don't expect any car to give you a unique personal image. It won't.

      "This is a worthless list. You know it is when most of the top 20 cars aren't in (or near) the top 20 in sales."

      Eh, Camry, Accord, Civic and Corolla ARE top sellers. Leave domestic biases at the door before posting.

      Well all that being said, it's amazing how no wants to report on how the new Hyundai Sonata has beat out the Honda Accord and that Toyota now feels that they are its biggest threat being that they have taken out Honda already.

      As far as American cars are concerned, Most that I like are made by GM. Now, I dont think they make bad cars but when a car manufacturer gets that label of making bad cars from its past, its hard to remove that label later on, i.e. Hyundai. No to mention how most peopld who say a car is a piece of crap, actually haven't owned the car but is going by hear say. I urge anyone to please test drive ya own car choice and stop going by what other people say. Just because someone had a horrible experience with a car doesnt mean you will. You take care of ya car and it will do the same for you. AMERICAN or FOREIGN!

      iQuack, at the time when Chevy leased the new 1955, there was more variations of the same model, 2-door sedan, 2-door hardtop coupe (4-door hardtop sedan came to Chevy in 1956), 2-door wagons, 4-door wagons, 4-door sedan and convertible with a wider array of colors choices. The Camry and the Accord have less color choices and less body style variations (I'm sure some wish to see an Accord hardtop coupe or even an hardtop sedan and a convertible) and less body changes over the years.

      As Richard M. Langworth, auto historian for the car magazine Collectible Automobile mentionned in the August 2006 issue of this mag mentionned in a article about the cars of 1956 "...At that era, the model change was a veritable watershed, akin to the World Series in the lives of of car-crazed kids, not to mention their parents....As the day approached, dealers would drive them in the showrooms, taping brown paper over the windows against the public's anxious eye. Then in happy frenzy on the official announcement date, whole families would hie to their favorite emporium to ogle what God hat wrought..." (I hope Richard M. Langworth isn't angry then I exterpted this text from his article ^_^;;). He also mentionned then Brooks Stevens described this portentous celebration as "dynamic obsolescence" but I guess if Brooks Stevens was still alive today (he passed away in 1995), he might write then Honda and Toyota should add more "pizzaz" and more style as well as more "soul" and complaining about the ultra-blandless vanilla style and he would said "...you do lots of profits, your cars are good BUT give us more style, more body choices and soul in your cars..."
