Well, for Ford and GM - their sales were down anyways. Chrysler was actually selling cars the last several quarters (unlike the other two companies) - but it did come to a stall now.

92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.

Current Cars:
2008 ML320 CDI 4MATIC (W164) - Silver/Black
2008 C230 4MATIC (W204) - White/Black

Past Cars:
2002 E320 (W210) - Silver/Black - Sold due to rust

The percentage increase is EITHER from this time LAST YEAR or from LAST MONTH, depending on how they quoted. Either way, both GM and Ford had a lousy 4Q2005 and a lousy September. Since DC had better last year and month, their percentages of increase were not as high even if they sold more trucks.

As for folks buying big trucks with gas down abit, that is a different story. Regrets will come later when the price goes back up.
