Took a while for that to happen I think. I remember when I was car shopping for my gf's next vehicle looking at a Swift. Decent price but the gas mileage was horrible for an economy sized car. That made me look at the rest of the line up and just wonder how below average cars with little to no appeal can survive in today's market.

Sad but we knew their auto lineup was going down the drain. At least they'll still sell bikes
