Your Next New Car Could Cost An Extra $5,000

Imagine walking into a dealership to buy a new car and discovering that your preferred vehicle suddenly costs up to $5,000 more than it did not long ago. This situation could happen if President Donald Trump succeeds in raising tariffs on imports. If he does and other countries respond to it, we’re looking at a potential 25 percent tariff which will result in increased vehicle prices regardless of automaker.

 

 

The average new vehicle sold in the US with various discounts factored in costs about $32,000. The 25 percent tariff will be passed down to the consumer resulting in a price increase of $4,000 to $5,000 per vehicle. And that estimate takes in account carmakers absorbing half the cost. Besides, if automakers absorb that same amount per vehicle they’ll have to make cuts in production and labor.

 

 

But what concerns automakers the most are reduced sales because who wants to spend up to $5,000 more on a car for no reason other than tariffs. How could this fiasco potentially be resolved? By eliminating all tariffs on vehicles between the US, Europe, and China.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
