    WOW, VW down 25% is bleeding massively.

     

    And that's with huge increases in incentive spending!

     

     

    Also, dealers are reportedly running out of stock of certain vehicles.

    Keep in mind that in some models, the TDi trim was 30% of sales.  Jetta, Golf, and Passat were three of the top sellers that sold about that rate in the past and now 30% of that volume is essentially gone.  Jetta and Passat are the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best sellers in the VW lineup.... so that is a huge chunk of their biggest sellers.

    Just drove by VW of University in Seattle and they have a ton of auto's on their lots 200+, so checked their web site and they list only 136 available for sale. Quick call to the dealership and the sales person said that they had almost 100 diesels that are just sitting till they can be repaired and unable to be sold.

     

    Based on that, I would say that VW is going to be hurting a long time as product sits, trust is shattered and people are not buying from them. Bet December gets ugly.

     

    So locally VW is offering 0 down, 0 first and second month payments. $1500 owner loyalty and .9% for 72 months. You can also get $1000 if you trade in a competitor car. Free oil changes for life and free loaner auto on service. Pretty amazing as they are also showing pricing reductions of 3-5K depending on model. So they are spending some cash to try and keep sales going.

    VW with all those diesels they can't sell is going to keep them down a while.  Plus you probably had people buy it because it was diesel and not VW, so those buyers may just look elsewhere all together.  

     

    This month shows how people want crossovers.  That is bad news for brands like Dodge and Chrysler.  You don't really need 2 sedan brands when a brand like Jeep is up 20%.  Land Rover and Volvo up a ton because of new crossovers in their lineup.

    It's a great time to buy a GTI if that's your kinda ride. Wonder if the incentives apply across the board?

    Hell, that's probably the ONLY exception to their incentives because it's the only vehicle worth buying from VW. Lol

    At least here in the Seattle market the incentives do apply to all the products including the GTI, the only change on the GTI is that the auto loan is a 1.9% interest for 60 months versus .9% for 72 months on everything else. 

     

    Kinda weird, not sure why this one is different but it clearly is stated on the web pages for the VW dealers here.

    A correction is needed.

     

    Lincoln - Down 2.4% (7,918 Vehicles Sold This Month, 303,221 Vehicles Sold So Far This Year)

     

    That should be more like around 90,000 sold this year (90,367 to be exact) or else Lincoln suffered the largest month over sales drop in the history of sales drops. :scared:

    I just noticed the GMC Sierra was down over 26%

     

    I wonder why the huge drop? 

     

    Typically when you see one of these large one-off 1 months drops is that the same month in the prior year had some unusually high sales activity.

    In this case, the Sierra seems to be returning to norm after some large sale going on in November 2014  (Think both GM and RAM pulled out all the stops on incentives at the end of the year last year to kick the F-150 while it was first being released)

     

    Nov 2012 - 11,726

    Nov 2013 -  14,362

    Nov 2014 - 22,554

    Nov 2015 - 16,527

     

    and sales are up over 4% for the year on Sierra.

     

    The long term growth trend is still positive.

    Thanks for the detective work!  :thumbsup:

     

    Your " incentive " explanation makes sense.

    Lincoln sold 90,367 vehicles....so far, not for the year.

    Lincoln is also at around +9% for the year...so far.

    Thanks

    What happened to Buick.

    Wow.

    Big hit.

    No need to be pedantic. We all knew that he meant "so far this year". We will report full year percentages in January.

    Buick's sedans are all at the end of their cycles and are being replaced.

      Cadillac is offering 400 of its smallest dealers a buyout if they don't want to be part of the ambitious and contentious Project Pinnacle.
      Automotive News reports the offers will range from $100,000 to $180,000. The dealers eligible for the buyout sold less than 50 new Cadillac models in 2015. While the 400 dealers make up 43 percent of Cadillac's total number of dealers in the U.S. (around 925), this group only made up 9 percent of total sales last year.
      Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen said the buyouts is to give those an alternative who don't want to forward with the new program.
      “This is going to be a long, arduous and challenging journey and certainly not one for the faint-hearted. Some people may choose to make life a little easier than what lies ahead,” said de Nysschen.
      de Nysschen did say while Cadillac has too many dealers compared to their rivals, the buyout program isn't meant to be seen as a way to get rid of low-volume dealers. 
      Project Pinnacle is a new incentive program that will separate dealers into five tiers based on sales volume. Each tier offers a varying level of customer perk along with different requirements for services and facilities. For example, small stores cannot stock vehicles on site. Instead, they would offer a virtual showroom for customers to explore and order a vehicle. This program has gotten backlash from dealer groups, saying it would violate franchise laws and be unfair to the smaller dealers. 
      Those who have been offered the buyout have until November 21st to either take it or move forward with Project Pinnacle, which is expected to begin January 1st.

      The automotive industry in the U.S. has been enjoying one of the best years in terms of sales. But one segment is seeing a drop in their sales. That segment is the midsize sedan.
      Automotive News reports that the demand for midsize sedans is at a five-year low. The numbers tell this sad story. In the first quarter of 2016, sales of midsize sedans dropped 3.4 percent. The second quarter saw sales dropped 13 percent, while the third quarter saw a whopping 21 percent drop. For the month August, all 16 midsize sedans saw an average drop of 27 percent. The Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, and Nissan Altima reported drops of over 30 percent.
      Automakers have been throwing money on the hoods of their midsize sedans to try and ignite sales. But this tactic isn't working.
      Why are midsize sedan sales down? It comes down to consumers wanting crossovers and SUVs.
      "It doesn't matter how deep you discount the leisure suit and bell-bottoms -- nobody's going to buy them if they're not fashionable. I don't think they're ever going to go away, but there's a lot more people who don't consider them anymore," said Eric Lyman, vice president of industry insights at TrueCar. 
      The outlook for midsize sedan sales doesn't look good as we enter fall and winter.
      "That larger sedan buyer just sees more value in the SUVs or CUVs," said Mike DeSilva, co-owner of Liberty Hyundai in Mahwah, N.J. "That's just where the activity is. And heading into the end of summer and going into winter, we're really going to get into SUV season."
