The Automotive Amanojaku

This is where you'll find news, random car-related thoughts and personal views from a rabid car nut. "Amanojaku" is Japanese slang that means "person who is deliberately contradictory". I've always found myself drawn to the less appreciated car makes - the "underdogs" if you will. Suzuki, Pontiac, GM Daewoo and Holden, are among my favorite brands to watch and comment on. Let me hear your thoughts!

Chevrolet Aveo Sales Surge nearly 50%

Aveo sales jumped in the U.S. market in March and have been on a roll this year.

2007 Sales were 6,793, compared to 2006 Sales at 4,438. That's a rise of almost 50%.

For the year-to-date, Aveo sales are at 15,228, up 44.1% over last year.

Either people have really warmed up to the fresh styling of the new Daewoo Gentra-based Aveo, or they've come to appreciate the way the car is jam-packed with standard features right out of the factory. Either way, its good news for GM, Chevy U.S.A. and GM Daewoo.

And the 5-door hatch isn't even here yet. By the way, what is up with that, GM?
