    I bet Ram trucks had huge incentives on them.  The rest of FCA got clobbered.  Sales are cooling off, 2015 was a record year.

    Could well be. 

    I think given the low prices in the sued car market, the sued market is now fairly flooded with lease returns and late model trades. Interesting to see what is selling well and what isn't.

    And I did read something somewhere about big money on the hood of the RAM.

    yes, new is too pricey.  lots of lease returns now hitting market.  used prices down.  i think the new market should cut back production for awhile.  election jitters may be part of it as well.

    A lot of students are graduating with a crap ton of debt and living at home also. That is not helping matters here.  not the main cause, but it would be a substantial number of sales if people did not  have high College debt and could find decent jobs.

    Well, when your so called compact cars are now selling over 20k easy and nearly 90 percent are leased, should tell us something...

    Leasing is up across the board.  Also, compacts are much nicer and much more highly contented.

      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

    • I sat in G70 at auto show last year and couldn't believe how small the rear seat is.  Otherwise it looked inside and outside really nice.  However, rear seat would be a deal breaker for me if I was looking for a sporty sedan. It terms of driving feel, where do you think it stands vs the competition?
    • if it's larger, it weighs more. It HAS to weigh more. You know the struggles of high performance with additional weight.  All three hyper cars I posted are hybrids, if you didn't know.
    • Wow, Forgot his balls never dropped.
    • Choice that is what you have and I have one Requirement that you probably never have to deal with as the US average woman height is 5'6" and average man is 5'8" currently. As everyone knows, I am 6'6", my oldest sister is 6'2" average height across both sides of the family is 6'.  As such setting the front drivers seat for my comfort and then getting out and getting in behind set drivers seat. If I cannot fit, then pretty much the whole family will not. As such, all auto's have to pass the seat test and here the Asian auto's FAIL. You can say cut the Bullshit, but the fact is most people are lazy about taking care of their auto's. I will not waste my time as most people that are big into the auto scene know that most auto buyers ignore cracking their owner manual or even looking at the owners maintenance schedule. Asian auto's did move to 100,000 mile tune ups way before America did and so pretty much, oil change, tires, brakes was it compared to American auto's that required much more to be done. Like I said nothing is perfect, but I have never scene people have bad experiences when they take care of a product to OEM requirements. That is where most humans fail at. Agree to disagree, but that is the difference I see every time I hear about people bitching about one brand or another.
    • Is the drivers seat as cramped as it looks in the pictures? How good is the interface to the manual controls? Does it have voice control?
