    Whoa is us - Jeep Sales Down 43% - Chrysler Releases August Sales Figures

    Well, it looks like Jeep is continuing it's nosedive with even more bad sales figures, but in today's economy, who isn't having a hard time (well, Honda I guess, but let's not count them..). It looks like every Jeep model out there saw a double digit decline from 2007. Both Commander and Compass sales dropped 65%. The Patriot took the lightest hit (probably due to its fuel economy) by dropping only 25%.

    Chrysler LLC today reported total September 2008 U.S. sales of 107,349 units, down 33 percent from the same period last year. Total September sales reflect a highly volatile economic environment, ongoing segment shifts and reduced fleet and lease volume. Sales for the month were supported by models such as the Dodge Journey, Dodge Grand Caravan, and Chrysler Town & Country, as well as competitive pricing and aggressive monthly payment offers.

    "The economy is going through a difficult restructuring, resulting in great uncertainty among consumers," Jim Press, Chrysler LLC Vice Chairman and President, said. "We are committed to supporting our customers with significant savings and innovative financing, and our dealers with new business solutions. Longer term, we all need to be investing in building a healthier automobile industry and be ready to compete when the economy strengthens."

    The Company finished the month with 381,365 units of inventory, or a 85- day supply. As part of a planned reduction in manufacturing capacity, inventory is down 15 percent compared with September 2007 when it totaled 450,733 units.
