I would purchase one as well, just not right away.PCRMike said:Sounds good to me. I will buy one if they make it.
Emphasis on WILL, SHALL or otherwise AM GOING TO.
Oh! Then you are a perfect candidate for the KL.SouthPawXJ said:I would purchase one as well, just not right away.
We're trying to get to a three-car situation (fuel efficient commuter for me, minivan for the wife and her business, and either a "fun" vehicle or a truck (also can be fun)). I use the space in my Jeep quite often, and dropping back to a sedan would be a difficult adjustment (I had a Honda Fit before the Cherokee, and it was suprisingly cavernous and quite fuel efficient). A hatchback Dart would give me some of the flexibility with a more fuel efficient ride (looking at 16 MPG regularly, hand calculated with the Cherokee).
I hear ya... However, I'm one of those who likes clearly defined boundaries. If I'm getting a Jeep, I wouldn't be getting one necessarily for fuel economy (read: I love having the capability).MoparNorm said:Oh! Then you are a perfect candidate for the KL.
In the DC area, I too see quite of number of the small Lexi. And based on who apparently seems to be buying them around here, I'd bet most of those Lexus owners would prefer to enter a brothel while being broadcast on CNN than enter a CDJR showroom. If that holds true for the entire country (which, thankfully, is far from obvious), then I'm glad they killed the 100 project. There are too many worthy projects Chrysler can and must work on overall, and making the 100 successful against the Lexus would require many, many years (and a clearer brand image for the Chrysler brand). A Dodge hatch will do far better, IMO.MoparNorm said:So they sold 700-1100, or are you seeing the same three everyday?
Yep, the Focus is precisely the reason why SM has apparently decided that a hatch TODAY, and thanks in large part to the good job Ford did with the Focus, is finally a viable proposition for the US. Additionally a hatch is a very viable proposition outside the US anyways.Mike V. said:Ford has consistently reported that 40% of
Focus sales is the five door hatch model.
