  • Volkswagen selling cars with diesel engines in U.S. again
    22 May 2017

    Volkswagen has been into a difficult period the latest 2 years, after being caught cheating on emissions, but now the automaker is selling cars with diesel engines in U.S. again. Customers lined up to buy two-year-old Volkswagen diesel cars when the automaker unexpectedly resumed sales in April.  Many VW customers may still want the fuel efficient diesels — also called TDIs — but the few thousand cars left at dealerships after the automaker resolved its emission-fraud crisis are the last ones the automaker plans to sell in the U.S. One dealership, in Troy, Mich., got five...

  • Fiat Chrysler sued for violations of U.S. clean-air rules
    17 May 2017

    Fiat Chrysler is gonna be sued by the Justice Department if the talks fail to resolve differences over the automaker’s alleged violations of U.S. clean-air rules with its diesel vehicles. Expect for the lawsuit to be filled this week. The suit would mark an escalation of the U.S. government’s months-long inquiry and could expose the automaker to significant penalties.  The suit being prepared alleges the company used illegal defeat devices, one of the people said.

  • April car sales predictions based on automakers' reports
    01 May 2017

    Another year-over-year decline in the automotive industry. This April wasn’t that successful as automakers and dealerships wanted them to be, and this is why we have such low car sales predictions. Declines will be broad-based, with General Motors, Ford, Fiat Chrysler and all other major automakers expected to report lower sales.  Meanwhile, Tesla shares soared to a record high Monday ahead of the electric vehicle maker's earnings Wednesday. April auto sales will likely come in at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 17.1 million, down 1% vs. a year earlier. But that would ...

  • Are dealerships selling vehicles with open recalls?
    25 Apr 2017

    New York’s attorney general has reached legal settlements with 104 dealerships it identified as having sold vehicles without disclosing open safety recalls. As part of the settlement, reached on Friday with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, those dealers must now notify customers two days before a sale of an unrepaired vehicle that no repair has been completed. Franchise dealerships are also required to provide loaner vehicles to customers if repairs to their recalled vehicles take more than one day to complete.  The settlement comes following an investigation by the...

  • U.S. auto sales are cooling, but the nation's party isn't over
    19 Apr 2017

    Cadillac marketing chief Uwe Ellinghaus claims that the U.S. sales party isn't over yet. U.S. sales will probably plateau this year just below 2016’s record finish and hover at near-record levels for some time. He says that what others call a “cooling off” is probably the best thing that has ever happened, because levels that were once seen as excessive are now sustainable.   U.S. sales edged ahead 0.3 percent in 2016 to end the year at 17.5 million units, a seventh straight year of gains. Through March of this year, however, sales were down 1.6 percent, with Ca...
