    Buick would step on Cadillac's toes, GM would price it out of competition

    Buick needs to go away. Ford has the right idea: Ford sells cheap cars, Mercury sells middle-class suburbanite cars, Lincoln sells upper-middle-class cars.

    I heard Hyundai owns Kia, and Hyundai is considered the "luxury" brand.

    yep, its the same car.

    They are all varients of the Holden Statesman / Caprice.

    The best of which is the HSV version, the grange.
