The slaughter of new car sales continued in May with sales down from a pretty dismal May of 2018. In just the first five months of 2019, car sales were off 119,000 versus the first five months of 2019. Bear in mind, we donít have Ford or GM numbers, but rest assured, the numbers would look worse.
There are a few cars that are ahead so far this year including the VW Jetta, the Nissan Versa, the Dodge Charger, the Lexus ES, and the BMW 3-Series.
Here are your top 25 cars for all of 2019, through the end of May.
What a shame that 18 of the top 20 are foreign. What happened GM and Ford?! Sad and concerned!

As I say at the top of the article, Ford and GM only report sales quarterly, so they are omitted. The next report, coming up next week, will include them.

Why not wait a couple weeks and then you'd have Ford and GM second quarter figures? Pointless without every automakers complete numbers, I think we could wait a bit longer.

Monty I appreciate your opinion, but you are in the minority on this. My listeners still like to know what's selling best and don't want to wait three months for the data. I also clearly explain with every list it is impartial.
I suppose if this is your biggest complaint on the newsletter, I'm doing OK.
