Little article i read this morning.
Most of it makes sence, and nothing is shocking. But I'm glad they're getting rid of the Liberty.
Although I didn't know that Volvo was so maligned...I rarely saw them though.

The Eclipse is no surprise to me. I was in Mitsubishi Motors NA in Normal, IL back in April and they were only producing about 30,000 Galants a year and that was all of the plant's output. There were brand new Ralliart Eclipses stored under tarps with flat tires, etc that they couldn't get rid of. MMNA just took over production of the Outlander Sport from Japan so they could keep the plant open.
The C70 has never been a strong seller... and hardtop convertibles are expensive to produce.
I hate hitting "next" for each entry of a list just so that dumbass site can get more ad revenue

For all the whiners:

4. Jeep Liberty
5. Kia Sedona
6. Mazda CX7
7. Mitsu Eclipse
8. Volvo C70
9. Lexus HS 250H
Actually kind of sad to see the Liberty go, the first gen Liberty's still look good and some of them are getting to be 10 years old. A re-styling would have been nice since the latest version looks like ass
wow that Lexus isn't even 3 model years in production. horrible looking car to begin with, but too many hybrids in that class and i never see em on the road.

Lexus HS250h was really gone for 2012. Production had ended this past January so 2012 model year is really a technicality.
And as mentioned, only one of the two Chrysler/Dodge is going away.
By the way, where is the Hyundai Veracruz on this list?
I'd rather hug a tree than a terrorist
I was interested in pricing out the HS and the hatch CT, but when I saw that there was a huge price difference between the two, it became obvious the CT was a much better option. I just know I wouldn't get a dime for my Trailblazer if I were to trade it in.
