There are hot sellers, and then there are the Best Sellers. To separate the wheat from the chaff, GoodCarBadCar.net is, in this case, honouring 27 large-volume vehicles. Some are small. Most are large. A few are in the middle. All are tremendously popular. These are their U.S. sales figures through eleven months of 2010. An * beside the vehicle’s name indicates there is a chance that, by the end of December, the vehicle indicated could be bumped up a club.
