Chrysler LLC Reports October 2008 U.S. Sales. Down 35% image

Chrysler LLC today reported total October 2008 U.S. sales of 94, 530 units, down 35 percent from the same month last year. Sales for October reflect an overall industry decline and reduced fleet sales.
“While October was a very tough month for everyone in this business, we as an industry must focus on the fact that there are still many serious car buyers out there, and every company has an equal opportunity to win their business,” said Jim Press, Chrysler LLC Vice Chairman and President. “From a Chrysler perspective, we are pleased that despite this marketplace downturn, our critically important Dodge Ram launch is on schedule and our overall pickup truck share is on target. We look forward to rolling out the rest of our 2009 model year vehicles with improved quality and fuel economy and fighting for those customers who are in the market.”
For returning lease customers, Chrysler will offer a Lease Loyalty allowance of up to $750 toward a new retail purchase. For consumers interested in leasing through independent financial institutions, Chrysler offers Bonus Cash of up to $2,000 on select 2008 model year vehicles.
