Not a surprise really.
It seems to be all small sedans, crossovers and dual cabs these days.
I think they were an under-rated vehicle.

That's how it works LG. The cheap cars are popular because they're cheap, and they're cheap because they're poor quality.

EDIT: My comment was in relation to being an underrated car - I'm sure it was, but the masses always go with the cheap - therefore making the good cars 'underrated.'

I bought my missus one about 9 years ago and it was a great car - comfy, economical and plenty of room. We only got rid of it when I bought her a dual cab in '13 as the dual cab was more suited to country living.

In my hometown, the migrants were very fond of 2nd hand Toyota Camry's, they have no moved onto Holden Captiva's - so chasing the cheapest 7 seater they can find

And that was probably Holden's last solid seller - other than the VF and Colorado's earlier days.
Good sellers don't necesarily mean good cars. Cars are toasters these days unfortunately.
