Do you really think the car companies made the public buy products that the consumers didn't want?<quoted text>
Nah I don't agree. It was the manufacturers of these behemoths that shoved them down your throat. afterall, the bigger they come, the more profit there is to make off each unit. I drive by my local Ford dealer everday going to work, his bullpen is jammed full of explorers & expeditions collecting dust, poor fellow , he can't even give 'em away at cost now.
I believe the public prefers large cars for comfort and safety and perhaps status, but will settle for smaller ones if they have to.
