The nice thing about month over month sales growth is that it is not fabricated like it is with FCA.

But then again, Subaru has respect in the amrket, reliable vehicles, descent resale and residuals, and an existential understanding of who and what it is as a corporation....not things that can be said about FCA.

"The 2018 Sonata is gaining momentum as well and just earned the 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, it highest accolade."
      In the Houston area, Hyundai is focused on helping its customers and dealers recover from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Both Hyundai and Genesis have launched disaster relief programs that provide an offer to anyone with a damaged vehicle.

Hyundai Capital America (captive finance for Hyundai and Genesis) is also offering payment relief solutions, including payment extensions, redirection of billing statements and arranging for phone or on-line payments free of charge. In addition, Hyundai's non-profit organization, Hyundai Hope On Wheels, is making donations to five Texas-area children's hospitals to assist with patient needs, resulting from the super storm.
