Jeep Sales Down 49% in January

Date 2009/2/5 11:44:23 | Topic: Sales

What can I add to the headline? Not too much.

Wrangler sales were the lone bright spot - virtually in the entire company - sales were up 4% from January, 2008.

The spin:
Chrysler LLC today reported total January 2009 U.S. sales of 62,157 units, down 55 percent versus the same month in 2008 (137,392 units), and down 31 percent from December 2008 (89,813 units). Total sales were suppressed by a significant reduction in fleet sales, which is aligned with the Company's sales strategy helping to maintain or improve the overall residual value of Chrysler vehicles for our customers. Fleet sales were down 81 percent for January compared to the same time last year.

Okay, so there's hardly any spin...
