    13 Sep 2017

    Two close friends died in the crash of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat over the weekend after they shot off the end of an airport runway. That someone died in a 707-hp Hellcat is, sadly, not unexpected. But two aspects of the story are remarkable. First, the men's ages: the crash victims were Lynd Fitzgerald, 71, of Colorado Springs, and his passenger, Roger Lichtenberger, 76, of San Marcos, Calif. Second, their speed: The car was likely moving at over 100 miles per hour.   The men had permission to use the 8,300-foot runway at Central Colorado Regional Airport in Buena Vista. That...

    05 Sep 2017

    General Motors dealers could face major penalties, even termination, if they fail to use a new disclosure form for customers who buy non-GM service contracts, a new or used vehicle with non-GM accessories or used vehicles with non-GM parts, the automaker told dealers last month. But by enforcing the new disclosure process and draconian penalties, GM itself may be violating its franchise agreement, said dealership lawyers and associations, pushing back against the automaker's notice.  Under GM's franchise agreement, dealers for several years have been requi...

  • August U.S. auto sales down 2%
    04 Sep 2017

    U.S. auto sales are down 2% this August, by totaling 16,14 million. We’ve got to admit that we expected to see even worse car sales data from the big three Detroit automakers, but as Houston area replaces flood-damaged cars and trucks after Hurricane Harvey, their shares got higher.  General Motors, Ford and Fiat Chrysler posted mixed August U.S. sales, with GM up 7.5 percent and Ford and Fiat Chrysler down. Japanese automaker Toyota improved sales by nearly 7 percent, Honda's sales fell 2.4 percent. Still, analysts focused on the potentia...

  • Car sales will rise after the Harvey hurricane ends
    29 Aug 2017

    As we first wrote there are many dealerships affected by the Harvey hurricane, leaving them with no inventory, but this is not all the car sales will also be affected by it at first.

Harvey struck over the weekend, leaving at least 10 dead, thousands of people displaced, and scores injured as the floodwaters rose. Texas accounts for about 9% of U.S. vehicle retail...
