    Glad to see VW up....

    Painful month for FCA though...

    Painfull for mostly everyone. Clearly the auto market is turning down and I bet will be soft for the rest of this year and into next year if not soft till 2019 as things cool off. They have been on a rip roaring pace for a number of years.

    Interesting that electric cars seem to be doing just fine...even the antiquated and overpriced Leaf is up...

    Leaf is understandable, Nissan is extending all current lease owners till version 2.0 is out so they can roll over to the newer one and are giving away just about existing leases on leaf 1.0 to keep it going as they have had a defection of people to the BOLT.

    FCA is hurting and there is no end in sight for that because Chrysler-Dodge-Fiat have no new product coming.  Keep being down double digits several months in a row now is surprising because they have a new Compass to sell.  Alfa is so small they don't matter.

    Good month for VW stable.  Surprised that Acura is up so much when there is nothing new over there.  And they don't have a great line anyway.

    Actually I am starting to see why Benz sells so many vehicles.  Compared to the lame ILX or the MKC...Benz is a rock star from an automotive standpoint.

    Cadillac has a lack of crossovers, that kills them.  Chevy needs a new Traverse and a crossover under Traverse, above Equinox.  

    Ford, GMC, and Chevy all get big numbers from full size pick-ups and SUVs, the cost on those is pretty high, and at some point the price goes up so high that even 6-7 year car loans can't make them affordable for people who for the most part aren't seeing any pay raises but are seeing the cost of everything else go up.

    ^^^ nail on the head. 

    I think in dog days of summer, with ending of model year, incentives can swing buyer decisions drastically. 

    There is a lot of big shifts here. VW is probably benefiting from the atlas and other reasons

    agree that GM is still behind the curve on crossovers. I don't think the new equinox is killing it, and now there's a big gap left for the blazer and the new traverse isn't out yet. New crv and likes of Tiguan are gonna crush it and chevy decides to actually go smaller (smh)

    hyundai in particular is very puzzling too. They are often easiest to get money on. 

     Xt5 is killin it though and making nice coin for gm

    Subaru is doing very well for itself also! 

    Subaru has done something like double is American market sales since 2007 or 2008.  They do a good job pushing the safety with all wheel drive and eye sight, and I think there is a lot of appeal with that brand to older buyers you like that sort of security.

    Are Chevy and Cadillac supposed to go CUV and SUV only?  If so, be careful.  Before the last recession (and big spike in gas prices) there was talk of Chevy going trucks and SUVs only.  $4+ per gallon made that idea look really stupid.  Cadillac could use a smaller version of the XT5 pronto.  Chevy already has three; I doubt they need four CUVs.

    Actually they appeal to a lot of younger buyers also...I have three children in their twenties and all three of them seem to have a lot of friends who drive Subarus.

    A brand like Chevy that is full line could support 6 crossovers.  Crossovers outsell sedans and coupes combined and look at how many sedans and coupes Chevy has.  Once they start dropping car lines, they will put more crossovers in.

    Should manufacturers also drop halo cars, flagship cars and sports car to build more CUVs?
    You know- the full line mainstreams brands?
    Why not? (because I already know the answer here)

    Even without a lot of truck sales, few CUV choices and virtually no fleet dumping, my beloved Honda is more or less even.  This makes me happy.

    Honda does NOT make trucks.  The Ridgeline is a rebodied Odyssey.

    It is strange that Honda only makes the CR-V, the HR-V, the Pilot and not much else other than cars and the Odyssey.  Yet in this CUV era, Honda does continue to sell just fine as if they were unaffected by anything.  It is rare that Honda sells anything to fleets at all.

    I am not saying Chevy should drop the Corvette or anything.  But do they need a Sonic and Cruze?  Or could those merge into one product?  Impala is going to die just because the segment is.  Personally, I would down size the Cruze and kill  the Sonic, offer, a 3 door, 5 door and a sedan of it.  Downsize the Malibu to about 185 inches long, cut the price to $19k base, and I would downsize the Impala to the size of the current Malibu and cut the price to $23k base.

    I've always thought there were too many models too close together in size, for ALL the mainstream brands.

    40 years ago, when you had a loaded Chevette if you had an AM-FM and a console, things were different. Now every size class has display screens, full power everything, AWD, turbos, etc- most of the differences left are styling (a lateral) and size (again: too close together). If there's not 12" in overall length difference between adjacent model lines, you're doing it wrong/ wasting development millions.

    RE: Chevrolet- the Spark is horrid, kill that. Sonic has the 4-dr and 4-dr hatch, not sure the market is asking for a 2-dr hatch tho. Then you'd have the core 4 : Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, Impala. Add Bolt & Volt, which are more laterals off the Sonic & Cruze (or is it the Malibu?), and the car lines are done. Camaro & Corvette obvious are standouts, and stay.

    In the mean time, I will quite happily enjoy German cars.

    Quit trying to confuse people with Logic, evidence an reason.  That never seems to end well for anyone.

    Outside of trucks, once the new Accord debuts, they will have one of the fresher lineups in the heart of the market (compact car, compact CUV, midsize sedan and I guess subcompact CUV's are up there now too) along with Chevrolet, and all of them are pretty much at or near the top of their class in sales.

    Even with the new Accord, their lineup looks dated, looks stale and is so frumpy from over conservative style that it will only appeal to hard core Honda fans. Their product line will NOT win Market share.

    Just soso interiors even in their newest auto's and small tight interior room. Honda need fresh blood from outside the company not more of their yes sir lemming employees.

    Sorry, but I have to totally disagree with you about Honda.

    Frogger is correct, all they need is the new Accord and they will have a great lineup.  People trust Honda and I can't say that about most automakers. Certainly not GM.

      Automakers for the most part were hurting in sales during the second quarter. The COVID-19 pandemic and the economy coming to a screeching halt for a brief time caused new car sales to drop by a third according to Automotive News. But there is a slim silver lining to this, full-size pickups have moved into being the best-selling segment of vehicles.
      According to data from Automotive News, one out of four vehicles sold between April and June was a pickup truck. This helped put them ahead of compact crossovers, which have held the top spot for some time. The reason is that trucks didn't take as big of a hit due to 0 percent financing offers from automakers to help bring in buyers. A large number of dealers said they sold the majority of trucks sitting on their lots.
      Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service provides another reason why trucks didn't fall off a cliff. Speaking to AN, he said that people need trucks for work and "affluent consumers who often buy such vehicles have been less affected by the pandemic."
      Trucks still took quite the hit in the quarter,

      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

    • Yes, they really need some! 🙂 
    • Wasnt THE Trans Am version of the Firebird more or less a Cougar competitor? Although I do agree that an Oldsmobile F-Body would have been a better fit.  Maybe. It would have been a sportier version of a personal luxury coupe.  But it would have also  been a less expensive model of Oldsmobile's very own personal luxury coupe that is the Cutlass SX.  Would THAT be a good idea having a cheap pony car sold above the price tag of an already expensive Trans Am but being a cheap pony car non-the-less and offering not much more than what a Trans Am could offer anyway, and probably be LESS favorable  than the Trans Am OR the Cutlass SX?  But then again, an Oldsmobile F-Body personal luxury pony car coupe would have fit in PERFECTLY just below that SX and the big daddy Toronado.     But then again, the Cougar in the mid-1970s just became a bloated Ford Torino personal luxury coupe and strayed far far away from its original concept. But then again, seeing that Pontiac made '70s history with their SD455 Trans Am and  made a stellar movie appearance with a black and gold 6.6 liter Trans Am...and later years actually HAD an Olds engine under the hood to satisfy sales and CAFE numbers...maybe an Olds rocket 455 or 403 in the later years of their very own F-Body doesnt sound that out of this world after all.   An intersesting "what-if" ... 
    • I am having a Ford Truck fetish, go figure. Love this video of them wrenching on a basic F series.   
    • This actually looks fantastic.    Agree completely.
