Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on June 15, 2012


One chatter asked if mazda had announced when skyactiv will be in the mazda5?

Mazda said it had not been announced yet, but that “It’ll be whenever the full model-change occurs.”

Hi, curious to know if Hyundai/Kia are planning on delivering a new minivan to our shores anytime soon? Our minivan is aging and want to see what they might be up to, thanks!

Hyundai has no plans for a minivan in the U.S

Kia’s response was, “For MY13 the Sedona will not be making an appearance. As you know, I cant discuss future product plans for competitive reasons. Howe’ver, Sedona sales YTD are up 6.2 percent and it’s a market Kia strongly believes in.”
