    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.

    Also, I updated the article with Mercedes-Benz's numbers.

    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.

      The rivalry of the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang has been going for ages in the U.S. But now this fight has expanded into China.
      Automotive News reports that a growing group of Chinese buyers are being drawn towards to these models as the exude the no-apologies Americana attitude.
      "We're seeing the beginning of a muscle car culture here. Something that is uniquely American appeals to the Chinese consumer. The image that it relays to the automotive public is very positive," said James Chao, a China market auto analyst with IHS Markit.
      Sales of both models are small with Chevrolet only moving 2,000 Camaros since its launch 2011. Ford is doing slightly better with 6,200 Mustangs sold since its launch in 2015. In the first quarter, Mustang sales saw a 90 percent increase to 963 vehicles. Part of the reason for the slow sales comes down to the price. The Camaro starts about 399,900 yuan (about $58,000) - more than double of the base price of $26,900 in the U.S. The Mustang isn't that far behind, costing about $15 dollars less. Prices are increased due to a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. made vehicles, homologation and shipping fees, and Chinese buyers trending to splurge on higher-time models.
      But despite the low sales, the Camaro and Mustang are bringing buyers to dealers. These models act as eye candy to help draw shoppers into showrooms with the hope they'll purchase a vehicle, where it be the eye candy or something a little less exciting.

      If the Volkswagen diesel emission scandal hasn't swayed you from wanting one, then you'll be happy to hear Volkswagen will once again be able to sell brand-new 2015 model year TDI models. Green Car Reports says near 11,000 TDI models will soon be back up for sale once they are updated with new software, making them legal.
      Volkswagen does caution those interested in picking up a new TDI to call their nearest dealership to see if they have any in stock.
      But that's not all. Volkswagen is offering some massive discounts on these models. CarsDirect reports that Volkswagen is offering 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy. Interested in leasing one? Volkswagen will offer a cash bonus of $8,500. 
      There are a couple of caveats to this offer. First, you need to have an excellent credit history to qualify for either offer. Second is that Volkswagen isn't advertising this offer.
      "We will not be advertising the available incentives from our financing arm as they [sic] vehicle availability will vary per dealership," said Volkswagen spokeswoman Jeannine Ginivan.

      The new Volkswagen Tiguan looks to solve some of the pressing issues of the current model such as its size that puts it between subcompact and compact crossovers. But that doesn't mean the current Tiguan is leaving anytime soon.
      Hendrik Muth, VW’s senior vice president for product marketing tells Car and Driver that the current Tiguan will stick around for 2018 and 2019, wearing the Tiguan Limited nameplate. Muth explained this model will be aimed at more budget-minded buyers and those who don't want the bigger footprint of the new Tiguan. Another reason mentioned in Car and Driver's story is the current Tiguan saw its best sales in 2015 and 2016.
      One item that could put some people off from buying the Tiguan Limited is will not get the  6-year/72,000-mile warranty announced for the 2018 Atlas and Tiguan crossovers. Expect pricing to be announced sometime in the fall.
