Where are you getting 46% from?

In 1986, the Big Three had a combined 72.4% share of the U.*. car and truck market, which by 1992 had declined slightly to 72.2%, according to figures Hoffer compiled. By 2000, the Big Three share of new-vehicle sales had dropped to less than 65%, Hoffer said.

GM, which has a major truck assembly plant in Janesville, suffered the steepest individual decline - from 39.2% of the overall market in 1986 to 34.2% in 1992 to 27.5% last year, according to Hoffer'* count.

Ford and Chrysler, which is now a division of DaimlerChrysler, had slight increases over the 15-year period, though both have remained essentially flat. Ford'* market share ranged from 21.8% in 1986 to 23.9% last year, and Chrysler'* grew from 11.4% in 1986 to 13.5% last year.

Ward'* Auto World, Feb 1, 2002

General Motors Corp. reports earnings of $1.5 billion on revenues of $177.3 billion in 2001 a year rife with unprecedented retail challenges. GM'* results are down from earnings of $5 billion and revenues of $183.3 billion in 2000. The No.1 auto maker earned $255 million in the fourth quarter, compared with $609 million in like-2000. Halting eroding North American market share up to 27.6% from 27.5% a year earlier plus profits from the Asia/Pacific region, helped smooth out the bottom line.[/b]

DETROIT-GM did it again.
Even though it sold fewer new cars and trucks in the United States in 2002 than it did in 2001, the giant automaker increased its share of the market for the second straight year.
That is the first time that the Detroit automaker posted back-to-back gains since 1976.
Aggressive incentives and busy plants allowed General Motors Corp. to accomplish this feat even as its sales fell slightly.
Excluding GM'* import brands, Saab and Isuzu, the automaker'* sales fell 0.9 percent. Industrywide, light-vehicle sales in the United States appear to have slipped about 1.7 percent to about 16.8 million. (Not all automakers had reported full-year sales by press time Friday.)
That gives GM a 28.3 or 28.4 share, up from 28.1 in 2001 and 27.8 in 2000.

The late 80'* Nova WAS NOT a tercel, A tercel wasn't half the car the nova was. The nova is actually a corolla. A car that'* made WRC appearances, and on and on...

A) econo 4door... point being there both from toyota and GM, same vehicle.

B) What can I say... I'm old... 28% is decent for what the imports have done in the last 25years...

"I do think we'll show a second consecutive year of share gains. And if we do, that will be the first two years in a row that we've had share gains since 1976"

"GM commanded more than 46 percent of the U.*. market in 1976 , when large American cars ruled the road and Japanese cars were an afterthought. But since then , its share has steadily eroded due to the onslaught of foreign competition"
