Re: July 2004 VFacts

Nissan's doing pretty well. I guess that can be attributed to their Maxima. The Maxima and 350Z are the only two desirable cars they sell here.

Ford Sales Deliver Strong Market Share

Ford Australia achieved its best monthly share result for the year during July, capturing a 15 per cent slice of the total market.

Ford sales for the month totalled 11,551 units, which in a total market of 77,035 vehicles gave the company its best overall share result since September last year and the best July result since 1999.

“With Ford's SUV sales moving up a gear as a result of Territory's strong early performances, total Ford sales year-to-date are now running at their highest levels since 1996,” Ford Australia President Tom Gorman said.

Territory was the standout performer in the July results, recording 1,681 retails in its second month on sale to be the top-selling vehicle in the SUV Medium segment.

“Territory sales continued to gain momentum during July, building on the strong pre-launch and first month results, and reinforcing the early market acceptance of this unique vehicle,” Mr Gorman said.

“Customers have responded to the wide range of choices Territory offers, allowing them to select the exterior and interior appointments that matter most to them, as well as the ability to have either RWD or AWD capabilities.

“Fiesta also recorded its best performance since it went on sale late in the first quarter, finishing the month with 411 retail sales”.

Falcon Ute sales remain on track for another record year in 2004, with 11,921 Styleside Box and Cab Chassis models sold to the end of July, up almost four per cent on the previous record.

Re: July 2004 VFacts

Because they buy cars with ZERO appeal. Pulsar? Corolla? Bah.

I guess I just think different to everyone.. if I were concerned about fuel, I'd buy an LPG BA. As cheap to run as a Corolla, and has a 156kW 4.0 inline-six and RWD. Plus its funner to drive (IMHO) then those kinda cars. Oh well, whatever.

Re: July 2004 VFacts

People think bigger automatically means more to run.
Ive gone blue in the face trying to get relatives and familly freinds not to buy the "super frugal" camry, but they dont get it, Falcon and commodore are bigger so must use tonnes more fuel.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I did a little test for cheapness to run with our '01 VW Polo 1.4 16V and '02 Forte LPG. The bigger, 143kW LPG Falcon, costs about the same to run, per week, same driving, as the 1.4litre 55kW Polo. The Falcon does 0-100 in 9.5, is more comfortable, and nicer to drive. I personally see no appeal in small cars, but I guess you're right, most people think big = expensive. It's too bad, would be nice to see LPG BAs replacing Corolla's as Australia's chosen economy car.
