When the largest consumer demographic is having kids and demands the room of a large vehicle, there will be no market shift to downsize back to small cars.
    SAD, but true.

    You are right for the most part. But there will be a time the economy is not good again. And the price of new hybrids and trucks are much higher than they have ever been. There will be a market for small cars again and when it comes the 1st to be ready will be the 1st to succeed. It wasnt so long ago that ford and GM almost wenter under. With Chrysler ofcourse needing to get bought out to survive.
