Dealerships Competing For Slumping Summer Sales

July 10th, 2014

With more than half of 2014 behind us, automakers have mixed feelings about the last six months. On one hand, most of them posted better than expected monthly results in the last three months, including record sales totals for the month of May. These automakers include General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Nissan, Hyundai, and Volkswagen.

There have been some negatives though, that have hurt sales and consumer confidence. The first three months of the year were so cold and snowy in the northern United States that sales slumped. People were staying inside and waiting for the warmer months. Another factor in reduced sales were the massive recalls in the first six months of the year, breaking a record for the most number of recalls in a year, in less than six months.

That said, dealerships are doing all they can to attract your business and clear some room on their lots for the 2015 model year vehicles. They are offering huge incentives and rebates if you know where to look. Get a no-obligation price quote from today and see how much you can save right now on a 2014 new vehicle!
