Re: spelling goofs on Audi's web pages

I think the "winner" is Honda. More than 60-some-% of total annual sales
are in U.S. If U.S. suddenly dissapears, Honda would probably go belly up.
I don't think there is any other foreign car manufacturer that is so
dependent on the U.S. market.

They do, in their *real* names like Toyota, Nissan, and Honda. But if they
did that in the U.S., they wouldn't sell -- even with quality workmanships 
these marques have proven to have.

This scenerio I've seen on my local TV pretty much sums up majority of
U.S. customers. (The scene was at our local auto show. A couple in their
60s was being interviewed in front of one of MB's S-class.)

The old dude: "What? $70,000 dollars for this!? I'd rather spend that for
a Cadillac! A Benz isn't worth $70,000."
