    And why GMs numbers are a little down (and why it's not a bad thing, unlike what certain people are trying to convey here).

     

    "Due to a planned reduction in rental deliveries, GM’s total sales of 227,825 were down slightly year over year. GM reduced daily rental deliveries by about 16,500 units, or 39 percent in February. GM grew its Commercial business in February for the 28th consecutive month."

     

    and 

     

    "As a result of lower rental deliveries, GM expects its fleet mix in 2016 to be about 20 percent of total sales, compared with a historical range of 22 to 24 percent. In 2015, GM reduced rental deliveries by about 50,000 units compared to 2014. In the first two months of 2016, rental deliveries are down about 30,000 units, compared to a year ago."

    I wonder how many V6 Mustangs made its way to rental lots?

    Before one down votes, one should read why I ask. Here is one reason why I ask.

     

    https://www.enterprisecarsales.com/list/buy-a-car-1#0/20/Make/a//make%3D%22FORD%22%20model%3D%22ford--mustang%22

     

    You will find just as many on Avis, Hertz, and Budget sites. It was well known when the new Stang came out, that the V6 was primarily for fleet and rentals. What is surprising to me, is a fair number on the Enterprise website are Eco-Boost models. 

     

    Note: There are quite a few Camaros on there too but they are all 2015/older generation models. This is a new generation Mustang we are talking about. It also has been well noted on the Sales Ticker thread that GM has steadily been decreasing the number of rental cars that sell while they increase their retail sales.

    I've had 2 Mustang convertibles personally in the last month... and my boss had one at the same time as me when we were both in Chicago.

    All of the Mustangs I've had and have seen have been Ecoboosts, not V6s.  In fact, they were really well loaded with heated/cooled seats Sync3 with Nav, etc.

    Why is Mazda down?

     

    They have crossovers... I mean, I guess people aren't buying their fuel-efficient cars as much, but their cars are gorgeous as well.

     

    They've lost 2 models (The 2 and the 5) and one model is in the middle of a change over (CX9).

     

    The rest is on the Mazda 6 which might need a refresh soon.

    I wonder the same thing.  The 3 and 6 are arguable the best sedan in their respective classes.  They have a couple small crossovers.  They need a CX-7 mid-size crossover in a bad way though, and the CX-9 is in transition.  But the 3 and 6 should sell better, I think Camry beat the Mazda 6 like 5 to 1 in sales, and the Mazda is a good product.
