Chrysler September Sales Down 34%
Chrysler’s monthly sales spreadsheet is as glum as ever, with the soon to be wholly American-owned again carmaker‘s September sales off 33 percent. Fleet-charged minivan sales rose six percent, 2,376 Challengers peeled off the lots, and almost 5K customers took a Journey. Viper sales are up 258 percent to, uh, 86. And then there’s a whole lot of familiar bad news that could me mistaken for a copy and paste from the previous few months. The small, mid-sized, and large cars aren’t what you’d call hot sellers. Outgoing Ram sales are down 31 percent and Chrysler now offers $6k to take the last of the 2008’s. Durango sales were back down, this month just 616 without mention of hybrid sales. Total year-to-date sales are down 25 percent. The only other thing poor CJD dealers have to look forwards this fall: budget Challengers and freshened interiors on the Jeep Compass and Patriot. Woo-hoo.
