US car sales continue to suffer - And for good reasons too - shoddy merchandise - ridiculous price tags, excise taxes and insurance costs - and slimy dealerships -to name a few.
BBC News - Business - US car sales continue to suffer - US car sales continued to struggle in April as cash-conscious consumers remained reluctant to buy new vehicles, and the industry faced turmoil.
Chrysler saw a 48% drop in April sales from the same month a year ago, a day after seeking bankruptcy protection.
Japan's Toyota sales fell 42%, with Nissan seeing a 38% slide. Sales at Ford slid by almost 32%, General Motors lost 34% and Honda were off 25%
[Not to mention the absurd insertion of the federal government intent on designing automobiles by the corrupt process of legislation. When consumers finally went to the showrooms and found no real cars, they simply stopped buying that crap. Who wants cars designed by legislative fiat in Washington D.C? I'd rather drive a 1965 Rambler Classic than a new Chevy or Ford being built today. Anyone driving a car with an airbag is just plain stupid.]
