SalesAugust Jeep Sales Suck Less

August Jeep sales were down across the board with the entire brand down 44% from August, 2007. For all of 2008, sales are down 24% compared with the first 8 months of 2007.

Chrysler does point to a potential (relatively) bright spot in the numbers:

Chrysler LLC sold 4,654 units of the Jeep Liberty in August, a decrease of 14 percent when compared with August 2007. However, the vehicle picked up some momentum in August increasing sales 24 percent when compared with July 2008 sales.

Full sales figures after the jump (if you dare).

The One and ONLY bright spot with a Year of Year Increase is the Patriot. Most were bashing the patriot when it was released but its the one vehicle that seems to appeal to the overall market. The patriot has a descent ride, acceptable MPG, and an overall great little vehicle that can well equiped for under 20K out the door........
