I wonder if the Japanese and German car manufacturers are having the same issue in the US and in their own home countries. Even with gas being inexpensive now if you drive a lot the cost savings with a passenger car is a lot. I generally have a hd pickup and a car for my wife. I drive the car instead as the pickup gets 13mpg and the car 25 mpg. A big cost savings when you drive 24k miles a year. I am thinking the passenger vehicle decline is temporary and once everyone quits making them they will be in a bind when the market turns.
They should fire their design team. Their cars and SUV’s look like shyte.
