I don't think it would be a good PR move to advertise a vehicle that you can only find 2 or three on the lot like they currently are.
You mean kinda like they did with the Sky/Solstice? Yeah, you still are lucky to see more than one on a lot! But, I think your theory is probably correct. When my sales guy called me Friday and said he had 3 Skys and 4 Auras on the lot, I thought to myself "Auras? They aren't even out yet, I thought?"... explains that eh?

I agree with the sentiment about reliability. The competition is pretty fierce in this market. I know most HonYota CamCord buyers want their cars to perform like their refrigerator -- silently and reliably for 10 years or better. But now GM has the 10 year, 100k warranty, so that should help assuage fears of the car crumbling in 37 months.

Tupperware cars FTW!!!
