    Lol! Yet Fiat and Alfa are still, by far, the weak sales links on the FCA chain.

    If only Alfa Romeo had the profit margins of Maserati, Sergio would not look so bad in terms of sacrificing Chrysler to the Italian sales boat anchors.

    WOW Toyota sold 41000+ Rav4s. Outsold all competition this past month. Not the best or newest. Was there some kind of special promotion?

    So far the Asians are up and everyone else is suffering...

    Nissan, Mazda and Honda are all down. So I think everyone is hurting, just a few not as bad as the rest.

     Bad month unless you are Toyota corp.  Alfa cracked 1,000 which is good but that might flatline around 2,000 a month.  Will be interesting to see what happens there.

    The part of this list alphabetically from Buick to Ford told a severe beating.  Not surprised really.

    No body is taking a beating.  Just because the number of cars sold ard down means nothing.  Its all about profit.  You can be down 50% but profits could be up 20%.   Don't rely on cars sold to judge the car industry completely.  GM for one example is down 15 points but in reality those were cars so to rental companies mostly, with little to no profit last year.

    As someone who despises Ford, I really don't mind seeing them down 7.5% though....and Audi up 2.5%!  Wonderful....

    Plus, Hyundai is really hurting...

    Love web page time back machine, July has the same deals as august, so you have zero percent financing, or $200 a month lease or $3,000 dollars cash deals.

    rav4-Deals.jpg

    Looking at local dealerships in washington state here, they must also have some additional dealer incentives as locally they are offering Finance or Lease with additional $3K off, so I figure they must have extra room to really move the Rav 4.

    Is there a refresh coming that I am not aware of?

    market share is important though, too.  Over time if your market share erodes, you can end up in a position where you no longer are a big enough player in the market.

    Go look at overall sedan sales versus CUV and truck sales and try again to tell us that they aren't taking a beating. Retail overall is down which does not include rental sales. This is from a few months ago.

    Or if your just really focused like Subaru a lot of incremental gains add up.

    Don't care for Audi at all. Just overdressed VWs that are just too vanilla for me. Just my opinion though  

     

    And yes, a few sedans are selling but the key word there is "few".

    Different strokes for different Folks.

    Question is why are all three domestics at the bottom of the pile at the moment?

    Given the probable sales slump (everywhere excluding Toyota), I wonder what vehicles are selling and where the profits are.  If the sales are higher-profit trucks/SUVs and crossovers, then maybe it is not so bad.  If sales are down and the marque is all cars all the time, that sounds like real trouble for that car brand.

    Trucks and Suvs are selling.  I am mostly concerned about GM right now.

    GM doesn't have enough crossovers yet.  We might need to see Chevy for example go from Equinox, Trax, Traverse to 4, 5, 6 different crossovers.

    Honestly too, another reason sales are down.  Car prices are WTFH!!!!  We've hit the threshold of what consumers are willing to spend or can spend.

    The old bread and butter sedans were mid size or large and reasonably priced.  Manuf's only price the Escapes of the world affordably.  More crossovers that are Edge sized need to come down in price to fill that everyman's car role.  Just because its a crossover doesn't mean it automatically has to go for 50g.

    I don't mind the new market taking a bit of a dive.  It should send a message to the manuf's that overproduction has real consequences, and also it reminds them that price is an issue.

    I would be happier if the developed the crossovers they had better. Trax and Encore are a nice start, but they need to bring their A game with what they have.

    I almost would rather them simplify the lineup and work harder at making what they have A game contenders.

    For GM, I agree WTF is up with Sales, Main thing I can think of is that I have not seen any real marketing for GM auto's. I do not have TV in the traditional sense as I use HULU, VUDU and Netflix and so I see near ZERO commercials. Yet with that said, I also hardly seen any auto ads on my smartphone, computer or in the new streaming services.

    I believe GM is still stuck in the past of only advertising in regular TV and old style magazines and newspapers. GM needs to get with the times of Google and Bing and advertise through the new media's.
