87000??? really - would have to see the actual stats - the $40k Gen had US sales of well less than 2k/month - a Toyota Avalon would do good to make 87k, Or maybe Hyundai does better in Canada and Mexico where the name doesn't carry so much baggage. Don't believe it.....

Remember Hyundai groups sedan and coupe sales together, so you really will never know how many sedans they actually sold. I don't see many and I'm in a populated area. There were two in my neighborhood (including mine) and now they are both gone.

They're on this marvelous invention called the Internet. It's on computer now!!
You asked about the "Genesis". Now all the qualifiers come in. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose...

Might also be counting the 25K (and maybe less) Gen, and it has been for sale for 3 calendar years now. Over 36 months it becomes more believable.

you know instead of sarcasm that's really not necessary , you might try a simple link?
Sounds like you might be quoting Hyundai's own PR releases and might also be including sales for a number of years in 3 different countries. On that basis, 87k possibly unremarkable? Wonder how many other Hyundais sold in the same period - a million or two or three?
That's where Hyundai is making all the progress IMO - acceptance in the mass market - they ARE getting a whole lot better at that!

For US sales only:
Genesis Sedan 2008 to Aug 2011-- 49000 sold
Genesis Coupe 2009 to Aug 2011--30500 sold
Total 89500 (sounds pretty close to the number Backy mentioned)

Some people hit "preview" and then forget to hit "post". But you must be doing it mostly right because you are managing to submit "empty" posts.
May want to select all, right click > copy when you finish composing and then hit post. That way you won't have to start all over if the post doesn't work; you can just paste and go.
