Well, that's certainly good news if it's true. It would appear the Red Tag event has at least brought sales back up to pre-employee pricing levels.

On November 23, 2005, the Detroit Free Press ran an article that GM and Ford's November Auto Sales would be 10% lower with Chrysler sales downward of 5%. The Detroit threesome would again lose market share as the Asian Imports sales headed upward with Toyota, Honda and others leading the way.

I suppose that all the new cars are finally picking up a bit. Lucerne, DTS, Impala, HHR. If only GM could keep 25% market share.

Unless of course, Ron Zarella cooks the numbers, in which case you certainly can't trust what you read.....

If you really want GM to be around, to employ you or make your next car, you would stop worrying about market share and focus on profitability.

Sales have definatly rebounded from october... October we were doing 16 cars in a weekend... OMG!!! november we saw a 55 and a 40 and a 35... but keep in mind, when the last remodel of the tahoe and silverado came out we were doing 70 average on a weekend... not just 40... so when these new Lutz inspired GMT900s comeo out I will expect 80-90 cars per weekend out of our dealership... and at full pop too... no discounts...

Red tag promotion certainly worked on me. I don't know if Cadillac dealers even participate in the promotion but the one I visited a few days ago had red tags with attractive lease deals on their cars. That little red tag made me walk inside and next thing you know I have a new car.
