    Hyundai with 100% Sirius XM gaining market share!

    Hyundai Seizes ‘Once-in-Lifetime’ Chance as Crisis Slows Toyota

    The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression has hammered car demand, with sales falling 39 percent so far this year in the U.S. In contrast, Hyundai’s U.S. sales have gained 4.9 percent. That’s helped cushion the carmaker’s 20 percent plunge in South Korea, where the government plans to cut taxes to spur demand.
    Chasing Toyota
    Still, Hyundai has a long way to go to catch Toyota, which overtook General Motors Corp. as the world’s largest carmaker last year. In 2008 Japan’s biggest automaker sold 8.97 million vehicles, down 4 percent. Hyundai and Kia’s group sales rose 7.3 percent to 4.2 million, based on Bloomberg calculations.

    Well at least someone has good news. Lately our local dealerships have started adding to their very much trimmed sales staffs.

    i really like this bit a mid-range model from under 16,000 and sirius for the teen to twentyish person in a small auto

    the base model is just under 14k

    Quote:South Korean automaker Kia is putting the “hip” in “hiproom” with the all-new Soul, a youth-oriented compact wagon.

    Officially a 2010 model but already in showrooms, the Soul aims to attract young drivers with features that range from a trendy, boxy exterior to special “mood lighting” on the inside. The model also carries a low $13,300 base price - perfect for teen and 20-something car buyers.

    Motor Mouth recently tested the $15,900 Kia Soul Plus, the model’s mid-level trim line.

    My test car’s standard six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3/Sirius stereo likewise offered a small digital display mixed with 13 well-marked buttons and knobs.
