Re: Has anyone seen last Mth's V'Fact's,

Looks like Holden is bck on top as predicted

<B>Commodore reclaims new-car sales crown</b>
By Joshua Dowling, Motoring Editor
The Sydney Morning Herald
Wednesday November 5 2003

Holden's Commodore is believed to have returned to the top of the new-car sales charts last month after relinquishing the lead to Ford's Falcon in September.
But the industry won't know for certain until official figures for October are released today because Holden concealed the Commodore's tally from competitors until the 11th hour.

The figures are expected to show Falcon sales dropped 20 percent from September's victory, which ended the Commodore's six-year winning streak.

The Commodore's return to No. 1 does not come as a surprise to the industry. Even Ford predicted the Falcon would resume the No. 2 position in October.

Significantly, however, Holden elected not to disclose preliminary "swap" figures among its competitors.

The industry voluntarily exchanges sales data on the first day of every month while official numbers are tallied by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries. These figures are usually published at the end of the first week of each month.

Holden sent a letter to its main rivals last month advising it would not be supplying preliminary figures for October. No reason was given for its decision, but there is speculation Holden is concerned about a discrepancy in Ford's reporting of Falcon sales.

Preliminary figures for September showed the Falcon was narrowly behind the Commodore. But official figures released three days later showed the Falcon had eclipsed the Commodore by 48 sales, prompting allegations of skulduggery.

As it transpired, a junior Ford staff member had forgotten to include sales of the GT Falcon, sold through another division of Ford.

A Holden spokesman, Jason Laird, said: "We no longer see a reason to share early sales data."

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries' chief executive, Peter Sturrock, said the process would be reviewed at an industry meeting next week.

Re: Has anyone seen last Mth's V'Fact's,

Hehehe...it is sad isn't it. "We didn't win last time...we aren't going to share anymore."

Ohhhhhhh.

If you ask me it seems as though they are worried that their sales don't compare...so they aren't giving any info out until they are sure they are on top.

Re: Has anyone seen last Mth's V'Fact's,

Well I can tell you that Ford New Zealand only managed 4th place in overall new car sales in October, being out done by Toyota, Holden and even Mitsubishi. The Commodore stretched its lead over the Falcon while sales of the new Mitsubishi Lancer sky rocketed to overtake the top selling Corolla.

However Ford's result could be due to supplies of the Mondeo drying up, as it was in runout mode with the new model going on sale this month.

Re: Has anyone seen last Mth's V'Fact's,

Hahaha, love it.

I wonder if ford purposely left off a couple hundred sales knowing they would be pretty darn close to the commodore sales, waited for holden to give their results up (predicting they'll probably fudge their results to outsell ford again), then hit them with the true figures.
