Yes, really.

What does GM's market share have to do with it? Nowadays we have Honda, Toyota, everybody with full size offerings, even 4x4s.

Part 2: must have had more to do with the perception of quality than size or fuel economy.

Here's some questions for you: how many full-sized "imports" are used for solo commuting? How many 4x4 "imports" go off-road? Do the imports have an edge in fe? Are high fe cars selling well?

Exactly. People as a group have no foresight whatsoever. Now that gas is "down" are econoboxes and hybrids flying out of the lots? Or are 4x4s, pickups, and SUVs selling?
