"We're so embarassed by our sales that not only will we refuse to tell you how badly some models are selling, but we don't really believe the Outlander sold as well as it did"—it was up 141%, not 41%.

They sold 2442 Galants making it their "volume leader" which works out to fewer than 30,000 cars a year. The Camry sells that in a month. Point and laugh time.

Mitsubishi Motors North America - does that mean these paltry sales include Canada's 777 sales in November?

You guys will be devastated to know that Smart's sales were down 79% in November to 78 units in CANADA. Sales are off 21% for the year.

My point: too many car companies think North America is a lucrative market and want a piece of the pie. Some of these companies shouldn't be in business.

New Outlander looks promising, but in reality, is a piece of crap.

Really? Granted, I've never seen one in person but I thought Mitsubishi finally had a competitive product that wasn't an Evo.

I didn't drive one, but its interior and overall quality seemed horrible, even worse than the Equinox. I can't imagine one with 50K miles.

Maybe on paper, but at least the CRV seems well-assembled.

I love when these companies tout crazy high percentages, when in reality they've only sold a couple hundred extra cars.

Does anyone know what their fleet/retail mix is? I drove by Enterprise the other day and the lot was full of shiney new Lancers with a Galant or two mixed in.
