1 percent is no "resurgence"; it's a flicker of the needle and the needle is hovering above "E". If my company had two consecutive years of approximately [b]30% decreases[b], no way in hell would I utter a peep at a 1% wobble in the numbers.

And the deals must be staggering to even be a partial factor in that 1% (and who's to say it is). My local mitsu dealer is logjammed with what must be 500 vehicles, yet the front line is all used cars predominately of other makes. :lol:

Mitsubishi's display area was dead at Seattle's Autoshow tonight. I hardly see any new Mistubishis anymore on the road. The local Eastside Mitsubishi dealer (Bellevue Mitsubishi) went out of business last year and sold their lot to my dealership so they could expand. Funny. After checking the Mitsubishi website, there are no longer any Mitsu dealers in Seattle or on the Eastside, and only 4 dealers within a 30ish mile radius. That's not a good sign for a major west coast market.
