Volkswagen's sales expected to increase up to 13.6%

We’ve got a new forecast for you, before the real car sales results get revealed at the beginning of March. Expect for the auto market to sell 1,331,787 new cars and trucks in the US this month. This will be a 17% increase from last month, but a 1% decrease from February 2016. Also it was estimated that approximately 3.4 million used vehicles will be sold in February, compared to 3 million last month.

 

 

The long Presidents' Day holiday weekend undoubtedly contributed to the increase in sales from January. Typically, the holiday boosts sales volume by 20% compared to an average February weekend. The holiday weekend is likely a contributing factor to strong sales in February, but we're also seeing signs that automakers are starting to be a bit more aggressive to move cars off the lot. Fleet sales were higher than average in February, and incentives are continuing to rise. While trucks and SUVs don't need as much help to find interested buyers, inventories of passenger cars are starting to build.

 

 

The automakers who will see the largest year-over-year sales increases will be Volkswagen/ Audi and General Motors. VW/Audi is expected to realize a 13.6% gain (38,669 vehicles sold this month compared to 34,039 in February 2016), while GM will see an increase of 5.7% (240,795 sales this month, up from 227,825 in February 2016). The manufacturer with the sharpest drop in sales is expected to be Fiat Chrysler, which will experience a 9.5% decrease (169,514 sales in February 2017 down from 187,318 in February 2016).

    With winter on its way, the roads can be dangerous because it dries slower and road visibility as well as battery failure can also be hazardous.

  • 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...
