I wonder how long they'll run with the hamster theme.

Probably as long as it keeps kicking the xB's and Cube's rear in sales.

Shouldn't take much.
Saw the ILX ad again...just lame.

Anybody seen the commercial of a BMW station wagon suv tearing up a beach, sand flying? What kind of mentality is that? Its been running for a while. Apparently appeals to "some" segment of potential buyers.

Saw a black Kia Soul the other day with a big silver decal that read "HamSTAR" on the side!

Seeing how BMW posts amazing sales volumes term after term, it must appeal to a universal segment...

That's amusing. I have to admit the theme has worked, the local screamer ad Kia dealer even refers to it as "the hamster car" in TV spots.

I don't watch enough for that.
That ILX is very unpretty too, reminds me of a stretched Versa sedan - and few cars are as boring and awkward as that. Who is going to buy it when a TSX appears superior for virtually the same money?
