WOW, The Caravan sales numbers are just crazy, 344% increase. 😕 

Fiat is dead duck dying again as history has proven. The amount sitting around on lots unsold is just pathetic.

Alfa, what a waste of money! :nono: 

Amazing how many dinosaur Journey's are still selling. :blink:

Cherokee and Compass, wow!  Hopefully this bodes well for my resale value.  🤓

Very wise decision to normalize the Cherokee's facial features.

Ram 1500 is kicking buttocks and taking names, I will tell you what.
