    Why does Smart and Mini still sell cars here?

    Smart has announced they won't be selling cars in North America by the end of this year.

    ^ Down 'only' 4% probably is looked at as 'booming' when your slashing models & employees left & right. 
    CLA down 43%, C down 8% E down 9%, S down 22%.

    So one good month out of a down year is “boomin’“?  Boomin so much that they are slashing everything, cancelling vaporware projects (X Class) and lost money last quarter.

     

    You must have gotten a really sweet deal on those rose colored glasses if you’re able see that.

    Really, you need to wash those Rose colored glasses.

    Excluding the few high percentage auto's, the bulk of their product line is dead or heavy down especially year to date.

    If this was your favorite hate company GM, you would be ripping them apart about the negative models.

    Plus lets look at the whole company, it is only really up 19.5% for the month as vans and smart are dragging MB down.

    Why "only" ? 19.5% is great. Cadillac and Lincoln would kill to be up 19.5%.

    For the year DOWN -4%

    One month does not make the year.

    Lincoln is UP 1.3% for the Year

    Cadillac DOWN .3% for the Year

    Porsche UP 5.3% for the Year

    BMW DOWN 1.7% for the Year

    I could go on, but MB is doing worse than many others. They did great years before, but clearly they need some major changes and style updates.

    Still down 4.0% for the year making this one month an anomaly in an otherwise $h! year for Benz. He sure as hell didn’t offer that kind of rosy observation when FCA had their double digit growth months but fanboys will always be fanboys. 

     

    Hyundai was up 12% for the month while being up 3% for the year. If business is “boomin” at Benz, then it exploded at Hyundai.

    I don't think Mercedes needs to do anything other than a little trimming of the fat because their products are at the top or close to the top in all of their respective segments. 

    I know they're down for the year but I don't understand the wording of "only" being up 19.5%.

    Context is your friend. One good month on top of six bad months does not mean business is “boomin”. Again, it looks more like an anomaly like FCAs past months of double digit sales growth.

    Never said you did. The original remark was made by SMK in regards to that 19% jump in an otherwise down year which was pointed out by multiple people. Again, context.

    WTF are you even going on about at this point?  Are you trying to argue to just argue or what? 

    I stated an opinion that their lineup doesn't need "major changes and style updates" and that 19.5% is great, regardless of sample size.

    Actually it seems like it is all you by cherry picking dfelts one remake while ignoring the context of his entire statement. I stated the line of events brought on by SMKs “boomin” remark. If you don’t understand that, then maybe you need step back and read all of this again before accusing me of something I’m not doing. 

     

    Good grief.

    My opinion : month-to-month is a puzzling, meaningless figure. Much too brief a snapshot and frankly, too much time has passed to keep the comparison valid. YTD compares (here) 7 months instead of 1; now we have some significant time involved.

    Moves of 2 or 3% are also meaningless by month. Sure it translates to dollars, but you’re never going to have unending ascension in business, and 2 or 3 or 4% is just a natural flux in commerce.

    Now, you have a model that drops 22% over 7 months this year vs. 7 months last year, and you better ‘be putting people on that’.

    Drama much? You cherry picked one blurb from dfelt and you think I’m arguing just to argue? Must suck to feel so victimized.

    The American market is Mercedes’ #3 volume market so it isn’t their most important and they sell a lot of A-class based product in China and Europe so some of this stuff that may not sell well here sells well other places to pay for it.

    Business is always boomin’ even when it isn’t.
