The RSX was discontinued to the US market since 2006 so there are none produce after 2006, i don't get why it's still on the chart it should already be romoved from the list after 2006.

Sales

The TSX sales are there & it is doing the best of all the vehicles. Actually it is doing pretty good in this economy considering sales are only down 3.5%: the ES350 is down 22.9% & the G sedan is down 16.7%.

I think that the RSX is still on the chart bc they sold some last year & it is there for comparison. I find it more interesting they sold an Accord hybrid last month in 2008.

AutoBlog broke down all the manufacturer numbers ....
