http://www.autoblog.com/2015/10/15/prices-of-used-vw-diesels-starting-to-drop-in-some-areas/ Another interesting headline. Again, people are not going to be happy when dealers start giving people less money for their trade-in.
Anyone think the VW used prices are down ? Look at this link
This article might say it more directly and give a wider perspective!
..."In September, VW was the market share leader in the auto industry in EU. It posted 23% of the market. As a contrast GM (NYSE: GM), the leading car company in the U.S. has an 18% share in its home market. For the time being, the engine scandal which has gripped VW has not battered sales in its home market."...
GM has also had the advantage of bankruptcy ! This is HUGE, almost beyond measure! This is not even to mention a broad and deep taxpayer BAIL OUT!!! Did I already say: this also HUGE HUGE beyond measure!?
To repeat another thing that has been already noted, VW has approximately 2.5% of US market share. So (huge) IF 2015 sales hit 17.5 M, & IF VW diesels are app 23%, THEN TDI's are projected to be 100,000 US market units.
So if anybody else but me is inclined to pull out their CHEAP crack cue laters, .... 2015 TDI's are app .00575 % !!! In a sound bite ...close to NOT measurable!!! This is a GREAT year! So if you take the 425,000 TDI's affected, in 6 ears since 2009, that is less than 70,834 units per year!
So y'all do chicken little proud and keep clucking!-1 · Share on Facebook
