Went to the Autoshow over Thanksgiving break and it was packed with tons of people. Suprisingly or maybe not so suprising the crowds were flocking mainly to foreign car manufacturers -Toyota, Honda, BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, Porsche. Relatively very few people at Ford, GM or Chrysler. Ford was even giving $75 coupons to anyone who would test drive one of their cars, practically begging for business. Not many takers I noticed. If the Autoshow is an accurate reflection of the car market these days I'd say the US Auto industry's days are numbered. Ford is in bankruptcy, GM continues to loose market share and has been displaced by Toyota as the largest auto manufacturer in the world. Chrysler was bought by Daimler only to be spit back as a disasterous mistake. Toyota is now cutting into Ford's, and GM's very lucrative truck business with their Tundra trucks and on the road to dominating that market as well. I think many people are just fed up and less inclined to wave the American flag and buy domestic especially when those Tundras, Camrys and Hondas are made better and made in the US. There are few gas sipping cars in the Big Three's line-up but many large gas guzzlers and SUV's. Who does the long term planning at these companies? From the same people that brought us planned obsolescence and using marketing as a band aid remedy for poorly made cars and playing catch up to the Japanese, I'm not so sure that they are just digging their own graves....again.
