Independent sales analyst Tim Cain has released his Worst Selling Vehicles list for September 2012, with not just one but three measures of poor performance.
While sales of the Mazda3 were up 57 percent, every other Mazda was in the dumps; the CX-9 was down for its 8th consecutive month, while the Mazda5 performed dismally in a Chrysler-dominated minivan market.
The Acura RL is suffered its most ignominious defeat this month, being outsold by the Suzuki Grand Vitara by a 10:1 ratio, while also being bested by the Mitsubishi i-MiEV in the monthly sales tally. Also worthy of being singled out for poor performance; the Porsche Cayman. Sales of the baby P-car fell 84 percent in September 2012, with just 15 units sold.
