Good point on the residuals, but I think we might see that problem fade as anything with a "hatch" will no longer have to mean SUV, thanks to the Focus! I mean, I don't think a lot of people know the diff between a car hatch and an SUV tailgate anyway, so maybe we can call wagons an "Earth Friendly-er SUV" and out some people into a wagon, just so they get to see that actually driving is more fun than looking "successful" in their mini-SUV...Escapes, gotta love, 9.5% more cargo room than a focus 5 door, 90.5% less capability than a vehicle called SUV should have...
I work in Downtown Detroit about a 1/2 mile from old Cobo (and always go to the show). The auto show told them a couple years ago they need to upgrade the facilities or they will pull the show out of Detroit. There are renovations going on as we speak but I don't recall any of the details.

I was cracking up at your Escape comments...aren't you aware that SUV's are super-cool and make you super-cool because you drive one.

I would like to see a Focus Wagon but bball40dtw makes a pretty compelling argument of why we probably will not see it.
