    Over 200,000 units sold in America? Wow, that's great! I wonder if 200,000 of any American vehicle will every be sold in Korea. Well, no, because Korea limits the number of vehicles that American manufactures can import into Korea each year to 6,000.
    Other than that, the playing field is level.

    Exactly, Ecomcon, it sounds like it's time to return the economic favor and allow 100,000 U.S. cars in to S.Korea to level the playing field.

    Hopefully, North Korea and South Korea will blow themselves up soon and we won't have that junk from those disgusting people anymore.

    Consumers chose what to buy not the government. If you have a better products you will have more customer. Is it too simple to understand.

    Joel, I hate to correct you but you're wrong. Sonata did not sell 40,000 units in November, it sold 14,031. I think you are referring to the entire Hyundai brand. Heck, if Sonata sold that many units in a month it would be the #1 selling car in the country!

    I find this funny as the one major flaw the 2011 Sonata has is the back seat cannot sit someone just under 6' tall! I stopped by to check out all the hype and immediately walked away before a test drive due to this fact. I went and bought the 2011 Accord as it easily has rear headroom to spare.

    DCT I find it funny you said a person under 6 feet tall could not fit in the back seat of the sonata because my older style MY 07 sonata BACK SEAT IS ROOMY and I am 6'4 and i have a lot of leg room and if you care to look at the deminsions on both honda and hyundai web sites for the cars, the honda MY 10 accord has less room in the back seat then the MY 11 sonata ..to david the MY 11 sonata did have sells of 40,000, i just look it up on 3 different sites..If I was honda, toyoat and ford I would be hoping this is a one year model sell trend only, other wise those 3 are going to loose more sales to the sonata
