American Suzuki is 23% More Better in 2006

We see a lot of press releases around here saying Company X's sales are up or down 3% this past year. But rarely do we read about double digit jumps. And even when we do, they are not this high. ASMC (American Suzuki Motors Corporation) just announced that they sold 23% more rides in 2006 than they did in 2005. In fact, they cracked the 100,000 unit barrier for the first time in their 21-year history. How'd they do it? Lots of people got Forenza's as X-mas gifts, sadly apparently. Also their "100,000-mile, seven-year, fully-transferable, zero-deductible powertrain limited warranty" couldn't have hurt. Most importantly, we just stepped out of their hoony new SX4 and were quite impressed. We're currently chasing down rumors that a WRC turbo version is coming in 2008.
