Interesting Toyota Sale Tidbit

12 posts in this topic

This from a MarketWatch article about April sales.

The fact that the Japanese manufacturers turned in declines was particularly noteworthy to Lache, who said he believes Toyota doubled its sales to daily rental companies. That would make sense to fill the rental car gap left by GM, which cut its fleet sales by a third.

"We are concerned that these automakers may be following the U.S. Big Three into the trap of increasing reliance on incentives and low quality sales," he said, adding that Toyota and Honda ramped up cash back promotions while Ford cut its spending and GM held steady.

Looks like Toyota may be jonesin' to keep the Number 1 slot, no matter how much they say they aren't.

SInce the big 3 are all cutting sales to daily rentals somebody has to be picking up the slack and in my neck of the woods that is Toyota and Hyundai. The Avis lot near me suddenly this year started having Camries and Sonotas and lots of Sante Fays.

Interesting.

When you can afford to make mistakes, I guess it can easily become a habit.

In this case let it be the habit.

It was a pretty good month in general in Canda:

"The biggest winner in Canada, by far, is Mitsubishi, with a jump of 91.1%. Other car makers that have experienced larger than average increases include Nissan (29.9%), Mazda (27%), Volkswagen (22.4%), General Motors (15.5%) and BMW (14%)."

I've heard it was a 4 year high.

Another car company which is pushing rentals is Nissan. I see tonnes of Sentras, Altimas, and Maximas at all the rental places here in Orlando.

One of the sub contractors, who worked for the completion of one of our project had rented three Crew Cab Nissan Frontiers from Avis.

it would be as simple as taking a photo every day as a drive by the hertz near my house.......lately it's mostly hyundais and toyotas. always a camlee or three on that lot. the sonata is music, music for the manager of the hertz store. he knows he will never run out of cars to rent.
