I personally can't think of better people to be down 26 percent.

Their dealerships are dropping like flies and so are sales. I firmly believe Mitsubishi will be the next manufacturer to pull out of the US market. I'm just waiting for the announcement.

It's no suprise with how ugly their newest lineup of vehicles is. I used to like a lot of their vehicles. The new lancer looks decent though.

what, like 20 cars/dlr/month?

IIRC, Buick dealers sell an average of 3 cars per month each.

Regardless, I seriously doubt Mitsubishi is going anywhere.

There's no comparison... Buick is not a stand-alone sales channel. It's grouped in with GMC & Pontiac. Combined, they sell approx 1 million cars annually in the US. Even then BPG doesn't stand alone in the US because it is also supported by corporate, GM.

Mitsubishi Motors is sitting on billions of dollars in loans and they play alone in the NA market now that ties are severed (or being severed) with Daimler and Chrysler LLC.

We'll see what happens.

That would make me about as excited as watching OSU beat up on Michigan in football.

We need to provide vasectomies for all of the guys who work in the Mitsu styling department, lest they reproduce and we have a new generation of people styling cars this ugly.
