Looks like Jeep blew out a bunch of Wranglers and Hyundai is doing something right with cars and pricing. Even though the F-(series) took a negative percentage hit, F-150's continue to sell like gangbusters out here in the rural areas - my local dealer, Norris Ford (29 miles SE) is busy as hell. (and right now they have some NICE used trucks.......)

its all those incentives for Hyundai like the buyers assurance and paying them to buy their car
its a hugely well done ad campaign playing the heart strings of this economy...

whats surprising is the fact a Ford and Chevy are 1 and 2 on there!

The Nissan/Kia dealer that my buddy works at sold 300 cars last month. 160 new, 140 used. Proving yet again, it's not bad for everyone.

I guess people still want trucks, who would have thought (heavy sarcasm), still except for a few, everyone was down a lot.
I don't see a turn yet.

Yeah dude, I thought all companies except GM stopped making trucks because "they're not cars the people want" :cookoo:
