    Sorry. I couldn't resist.

     

    Seriously, this perfectly illustrates what was talked about yesterday regarding across the board sales struggles and why it will continue. Looks like everyone took a hit last month.

    Buick and Cadillac did well given the current market.  Especially that 17% rise in Buick sales.  I never thought I would see that kind of double-digit increase in sales for Buick, and Caddy up by nearly double digits is good news too.

    So is that Alfa Romeo sales increase mostly in Europe? I have not seen them selling here, mostly just sitting on the lot next to the Fiat 500 garbage. Clearly does not show selling 300K a year like Sergio promised.

    Hey Surreal...we dont troll, we gremlin!

    Maybe for this month and moving forward, the Camaro FINALLY exorcised its Demons!

    (yes I know! Shyster Hennessey versus straight from Auburn Hills stock...still phoquing cool, though!)

    (Hey, Shelby, we need another Super Snake!)

    Indeed....! Although there is a real part of me that would not mind owning an Ecoboost Mustang.

    Understandable. I'm more of a Challenger man myself. The extra room is a plus for me (and it sits just like my old Magnum which is a huge plus).

    Three brands I really like, Audi, Cadillac and Buick all doing well. VW is still sucking wind after the TDI scandal even though sales are up slightly. Wonder why Ford is so far down?

    The Challenger has really grown on me...I wasn't a strong fan when it came out, but I like it much more now.

    True, but they sell a lot of trucks in the mix...

    Good time for me to be buying a replacement car for my TDI I sold back. Wonder what incentives will look like by August if things don't change?

    Not this month, Ford reported a 4.2 percent drop in trucks. Only positive was in the SUV/Crossovers with a 1.2 percent increase.

    At this rate, I wouldn't be shocked if incentives keep piling up. Makes me wish I had a little bit more money so I could take advantage of it.

    I am enjoying driving my Mini Cooper S, which is paid for and has been for several years. But it is almost 15 years old, I do need to do something.

    The Bolt was a blast to drive, sadly the wife cannot get over the white V design in the dash. So that is on hold waiting for version 2.0 as we both are not impressed with Tesla design or how low their auto's sit. The Model X was not impressive to us either except for the gullwing rear doors. Not enough to justify the price.

    lol the white V prevents a sale... sure...  ;)

     

    The irony is he will be buying an early production model of the Bolt at some point and doing a concourse restoration..and then towing it behind his 12 mile per gallon Escalade to shows.

    So... the delta between the two is more than double the total Mustang sales per month in China (average = 310).  Are Chinese sales of Mustang still something to tapdance about?

     

    I couldn't resist either.

    They sold 2 in Cambodia, which should substantially soften the blow.

      We clearly have European, Asian and Americas auto fans. I feel this is a good place to discuss the sales of segments, models, etc. here. I have pulled the latest Statista data that can be gotten for free to show here and discuss.
      As such, there is clearly a leadership perceived image that BMW and Mercedes-Benz have carried the last few years. Yet with that, you look at over all sales and both these companies have flipped and flopped leadership of the year in specific luxury segments but lack over all auto sales in the US.
      Based on the reports that @Drew Dowdell posted in January 2020 on 2019 auto sales:
      Ford - 2,422,698 GM - 2,887,046 FCA - 2,203,663 Tesla - 367,500 Audi - 224,111 BMW - 360,918 Genesis - 21,233 Honda - 1,608,170 Hyundai - 688,771 Infiniti - 117,708 Jaguar Land Rover - 125,787 Kia - 615,338 Mazda - 278,552 Mercedes-Benz - 357,729 Mitsubishi - 121,046 Nissan - 1,227,973 Porsche - 61,568 Subaru - 700,117 Toyota - 2,383,349 Volkswagen - 363,322 Volvo - 108,234 2019 Auto Sales

      2018 saw a continuation of near-record sales and large profits for automakers in the U.S., but that appears to be coming to an end. Bloomberg reports various factors are conspiring to end this trend such as increasing interest rates and the average price of a new vehicle hitting record highs. While some may point out that 2018 saw a 0.3 percent increase in vehicle deliveries (17.6 million according to AutoData), analysts point that this is due to the tax cuts brought by President Donald Trump last year and automakers selling more vehicles to fleets.
      Charlie Chesbrough, senior economist at Cox Automotive said that the big U.S. automakers saw deliveries fall at a faster rate "in the last three months of the year than for all of 2018."
      "For some automakers, the slowdown has already begun,” said Chesbrough.
      Look at General Motors as an example. For the fourth quarter, GM reported a 2.7 percent drop in sales - 785,229 vs. 806,739 for 2017.
      “We’ve had a gradually declining trend on retail even with the tax changes. That’s the kind of trajectory we would anticipate given continued headwinds on the economic side,” said Emily Kolinski Morris, Ford’s chief economist.
      What are we expecting in terms of sales for the coming year? It seems everyone agrees that it will be at or under 17 million vehicles, but estimates vary widely with one predicting 16.5 million due to reductions in fleet purchases. Executives are quick to caution that sales won't implode this year. Scott Keogh, president and chief executive officer of Volkswagen of America said on a conference call that unemployment is low and consumer confidence is high. But the issue uncertainty with Keogh saying consumers are watching "interest rates rise and are wary of what’s been a volatile stock market of late."
      “When the headlines say that the market has had the worst falloff since 2008, that will rattle consumer confidence,” he said.

    • For shit like that I'd hire a landscaper, who would haul such content in a dump truck or trailer. 
    • You going to hand-shovel a ton & a half of wet stone into the back of a Suburban, trying to tarp the carpeted bottom & plastic sides of the interior to keep it from getting torn apart? Really? Re-read my post- people don't put LOOSE material of any considerable volume in a vehicle like a Suburban. Is it physically possible? Sure - but does it happen? But a lawn mower or a potted shrub or a few bags of mulch- a roofed SUV could handle as well as a 4-ft bed trucklette. The overlap in cargo capability of a 4-ft bed and a mid-size SUV is a LOT more than between a Suburban and a full-size pickup.  
    • So while a tarp for your friends Infinite was okay, is not okay for a Suburban? That makes zero sense and that is the double talk I was talking about here. What you just said about the Suburban can be applied to the Infiniti and it actually makes a case for the Hyundai in the process. Again, being hung up on the bed size caused this. 
    • Everything else (and a buttload of excuses by you) aside, I do find it amusing how you think bags of mulch don’t gets holes in them and leak everywhere like they tend to do. Quite frankly you have tried to play it both ways by touting Full size trucks on one hand while trying to say that SUVs are better suited for light work (they are not in this case) than the Santa Cruz while ignoring the fact that the SUV argument applies to full size trucks. This all started because of your “problem” with bed size which, quite honestly, seems to be your problem and your problem alone here but not everyone sees it as a problem and the positives have been pointed out in spades.     And I live in NC and have ZERO use for a snow blower. Thanks for playing though Balth but please don’t try and act like gas spillage inside a vehicle isn’t a issue (it is). Whether someone goes electric or not is 100% irrelevant and you are deflecting with that statement. And again, all of those efforts your Infiniti boy makes to accommodate loads in his SUV could by 99.9% mitigated and simplified by just having a small bed with which to carry those things without the follow up cleaning and tarp shaking lol. Seriously, stop trying to equate your needs with others here (or dropping your “friend” as an example that actually supported the need for something like the Hyundai).
