Many of these are either long in the tooth, too expensive, or just never had the marketing to explain what they are to consumers

Amusing that the A3 is at the top of the list....considering it is currently a discontinued model...lol

We would have bought an A3 quattro diesel....but then were told that that configuration didn't exist.

We were then told that because it was discounted we had no chance of getting either a RWD diesel or a quattro gasser....lol.

i don't get it why Acura TSX is down so much from previous year. sure the new ILX is replacing it, but TSX has way more features, more room, with a base engine which you have to pay for to get on an ILX, TSX is also made in Japan. a 2013 TSX with technology package after heavy discount is about the same price as a fully loaded ILX.

2013 is the last year for the TSX and I'm assuming production is already slowing down.....I was at an Acura dealer a month ago and they had zero new TSX's on the lot.

The Cadenza was only on sale for a few days in April, so it is unfair to label it as a slow-seller.

Correct....and it has the potential to be an excellent competitor to the new Chevy Impala/ Hyundai Azera and the existing Ford Taurus, though the Azera itself generally doesn't sell well.

It's disappointing the iQ hasn't resonated here in the US. Was a well conceived idea and I thought would easily get teenagers/college kids....

If they drop the GT-R's price to $5,000 it will be the greatest selling sports car ever. I'd buy ten if I could.

It's hideous. I don't think anybody that's mature enough to be buying their own car would want it...probably something that a teenage girl might ask her dad to buy.

There will be no FJ Cruiser for 2014 either. Toyota is discontinuing them.

I actually see a lot of FJ's driving around where I live.

Really?! Glad to hear. FJ's although competent off road, are full of hard plastics and some of the worst visibility in a SUV I've ever experienced. Good riddance.
