They were up 0.4%.  At least they aren't down 34% like Alfa Romeo, or down 26% like Chrysler or down 7% like Jeep in an SUV market and Jeep is down 7% for the year as the SUV market is just getting flooded with entries.

FCA was up for the month while Benz was down. FCA is also only down 3% for the year while Mercedes is down 8%. Not sure how you paint that as a rosy picture. 

 

I do agree about Alfa though. It is just a joke in automotive clown shoes at this point and perfectly illustrates the money spent on it by FCA was money wasted.

Neither FIAT nor Alfa Romeo should be sold here.  They belong in Europe since neither can compete here.  Maybe if that Renault merger with FCA goes through, someone will have the wisdom to discontinue FIAT and Alfa Romeo in North America.

I agree 100%. Both were garbage forty years ago and they clearly have not improved upon that reputation.

Funny anecdote, for some reason I've seen a 1/2 dozen Alfa Romeos (4 Giulias and 2 Stelvios) in the last week.  The Giulia Quadrafiglio does look great in dark blue.

Single market brands have a hard time.  That is a problem FCA has.  Alfa and Fiat are stronger in the USA than Chrysler and Dodge are outside of North America.  When you have regional brands, it is hard to stay competitive.  Same problem with Renault, another regional company, if they merge all this together, they need to get a "One Ford" type plan where they have 1 car sold all over the world, maybe under different brand names.

      At FCA, amid the backdrop of a proposed merger and its subsequent collapse,  a lawsuit has been filed by Reid Bigland, head of the RAM brand and CEO of FCA Canada alleging that FCA has retaliated against Bigland for cooperating in a Federal prob of FCA's sales reporting process. 
      Bigland joined Chrysler in 2006 and in turn took over the reigns of Alfa Romeo, Maserati, and Dodge, eventually serving as CEO of FCA Canada.  The lawsuit filed Wednesday accuses FCA of retaliation for not taking the fall for the sales reporting prob.  Bigland claims his compensation has fallen by more than 90% and that the sales reporting process under scrutiny was one that he inherited. 
      The probe of FCA's sales reporting started after two dealerships in Illinois filed a lawsuit alleging they were offered cash in return for reporting falsely inflated sales numbers. From that lawsuit, FCA was forced to recount and re-report its previous sales reports.  The Security and Exchange Commission continued its investigation and Bigland cooperated. 
      Bigland's position is that the sales reporting methods existed well before he assumed his roles, and he did nothing to change the reporting process already in place.  Bigland claims that the SEC tried to settle with some admission of wrong-doing by the company and Bigland. Bigland declined to admit wrong doing and later sent a letter detailing the sales reporting practices to the SEC.
      Bigland sold his shares in the company in 2018 and he claims that FCA is withholding bonuses to pay for SEC fines if and when they come. 
      For FCA's part they say via Detroit News:
      We'll have more information as it comes out.

      Volvo Cars posted strong sales in May, with volumes up 12.4 per cent compared with the same period last year.
      The company sold 60,196 cars during the month, as China, Europe and the US all reported a growth in sales compared with the same period last year.
      The double digit volume growth in May was led by the continued strong demand for Volvo’s award-winning SUV range led by the XC60, and followed by the XC40 and XC90. Volvo’s latest models, the V60 estate and the US-built S60 sedan, also contributed to the strong performance.
      In the January to May period, Volvo sold a total of 278,051 cars – up 9.6 per cent, compared with the same period last year.
      China reported a strong sales growth of 17.4 per cent in May compared with the same period last year. Total sales in the region reached 12,425 cars during the month. The growth came on the back of high demand for the locally assembled XC60 and S90 models.
      European sales in May grew 16.9 per cent to 29,681 cars, led by strong demand for the XC60, followed by the XC40 and the V60 estate.
      US sales reached 9,761 cars in May, up 4.5 per cent compared with the same period last year. XC90 was the best selling car in the region followed by the XC60.
