I still can't say for certain which direction locally the new vehicle supply is heading for us yet. Deliveries did seem to slow down this week but not appreciatively. I did read one blogger who claims that the big manufacturers are purposefully leaving add ons (like keyless entry etc.) off a number of new vehicles now lower price which I have noticed in many of lower end models like say Edges and Escapes some time ago and mentioned here, but he also claimed back end fleet sales to Government and private fleets are up but being hidden by just running them through as normal sales.
I guess that is possible I wouldn't see that if it was true unless they were doing it with new vehicles right off a transport.
Another blogger flat out mentioned that the auto industry claimed to have something over 3.5 million autos stored in inventory in 2019 and we are currently sitting at less than half that now. I disagreed with that claim initially as I know we have many more autos stored now than we ever had back then but the I remembered the automakers having literal sports arenas full of vehicles before the scamdemic. Maybe there is something to that claim.
Anyway that blogger claimed that the big three auto makers are pushing forward to getting at least 1.5 million autos in inventory this year before they are going to stop. I guess that is possible but if so they way it's shaping up it's going to be totally supported by the dealers.
Going to be interesting with the loans and financing problems and the new student loan debt I would imagine.
As I keep pointing out this Winter is just gonna be a big wait and see game I think.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
