To say the numbers are impressive is a gross understatement. I see I am not alone when I bought my first Nissan. The second most noticeable number to me is HONDA!

I believe Nissan's top dog Carlos Ghosn is the reason. He has been very bold in his efforts. I read a book called "The End of Detroit", a very good read if you're interested in the industry, and they go into a lot of the stuff he's done. I talked with the finance guy at the dealer that we bought from and his quote was "he's got big kahunas".

He's winning the Automobile hall of fame award:

Hondas are good, I owned one. My problem is they don't have anything tow-worthy yet (read:V-8) or a car exciting enough for me to desire.

I'm thinking of the G35 to replace my Maxima when it's time. Now that's style!
Wow, that's impressive! 20%!

No doubt GM would like to have those numbers right now. I guess the lesson is, make bland vehicles, sell fewer of them.
