Wow. What a month. Toyota sold 44.7k Camrys. Honda sold nearly 40k Civics and Accords each. The Cruze had another good month with nearly 25k sold. Ford sold nearly 25k Fusions and 20k for the Focus. The Malibu had a decent month with nearly 17k. 13k Impalas sold, but I think that includes the old model too.
As for Trucks, the F150 is still on fire with over 70k sold, which is 9k more than the Silverado/Sierra combined. Don't know if GM is fully ramped up with the '14 models yet though.

As it ended up, we couldn't line up picking the car up with when the seller was home this weekend. Found out he lives there but works in S.E. OH, 2 hrs. 15 min. drive from us, so he said he'd trailer the car to where he works in OH and we could pick it up there next Tuesday...no extra charge (he drives a truck there anyway). Hard to say 'no' to that! Saves probably five hours each way for us, at least, and no hotel required.

I'd gladly wait a few days to save all of that time. Sounds like a win/win to me.

Well written AnythingbutGM!
I would say, since the largest automobile company in the world was driven into a ditch at a steep nosedive angle, into oblivion had it not been for massive multi-billion dollar bailouts, that a balanced forum would be decidedly biased against GM. After all, how can a company with such negative results the last 40 years have much other than criticism, complaints, and negative viewpoints?
Being a GM fan is sort of like being a Cubs fan? How do Cubs fans stay positive? Or maybe a San Diego Chargers fan? I'm not one.

odd arrangement. especially for something you got such a good deal on. Me, I would have made your life hard hoping you backed out, so I could relist and get more for it!
Where the car is at is about 20 minutes from me. And right across the river from Lemko, since the bridge runs from him to Cinnaminson.

There is a commercial here on radio in Northern Illinois for the Cubs. It has a parent coaching an infant to root for the "Cubbies". Pathetic. Probably a good amount of Cubs fans are brainwashed by their parents and indoctrinated to root for the perennial loser. Maybe a parallel here to children who grow up in an American brand "only" household (GM, Ford, Chrysler) and they too blindly follow the buying habits of their parents when they become adults.

There's always next year.
In the case of the automakers, the slogan may be "there's always next quarter".

Blindly=not considering a domestic in the year 2013.
And I certainly admire someone who stands by their favorite team, over a 'fairweather fan' only 'sheeple'! LOL
