  • People Want Small Cars, But Automakers Stopped Selling Them
    18 Jun 2018

    Consumers have a short memory when it comes to gas prices. When they go down, buyers rush out to trade their small, economical hatchback for a large, three-row SUV. That’s what happened in 2017 when gas prices dropped and small cars were traded into dealers on large cars and trucks. Now, oil prices are rising and Automotive News reports that people want their small cars back.  But due to a lack of supply used prices are currently rising on small cars. Some analysts believe a seasonal uptick is responsible for the increased demand, while others point to industry decisions by maj...

  • Kia Recalls Half A Million Vehicles In The U.S. Due To Airbag Problem
    13 Jun 2018

    Following news in March that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) was looking into reports of faulty airbags in cars made by Kia and its affiliate Hyundai, Kia has announced that it’s recalling more than half a million vehicles in the U.S. because of this issue.  The NHTSA decided to investigate this matter after learning of six accidents in which four people died and six were injured. In each of the crashes, the airbags failed to deploy because of an apparent electronic glitch. Kia is recalling 507,000 vehicles, including 2010-2013 Kia Fortes, 2011-2013 K...

  • Trump Tariffs May Cost Carmakers 1 Million Auto Sales a Year
    12 Jun 2018

    If president Donald Trump slaps a 25 percent tariff on imported cars, it may cost the U.S auto industry 1 million annual car sales, and that’s just the low end of the estimated damage. The projection by researcher LMC Automotive assumes that automakers would absorb at least half the cost of a tax on imported vehicles.  If companies pass the full 25 percent cost on to consumers, it could snuff out about 2 million sales or more than 10 percent of annual U.S. deliveries. President’s order last month to investigate auto imports for potential trade penalties on national securi...

  • Used Car Market Shows Remarkable Resilience
    06 Jun 2018

    The used car market continues to show remarkable resilience with values of two-year-old ex-PCP cars in May 2018 retaining 61% of their value new, a figure unchanged from May last year. Used car search company Cazana said the May performance was one point lower than April, which was reasonable considering the increased numbers of these PCPs car returning to the used car market.  Cazana added that diesel values were holding up well despite negative coverage and falling new diesel car sales. Diesel registrations fell for the 14th consecutive month, down 23.6% in May. In comparison to Ma...
