it's no big deal. last year was a record year, so of course sales will be down this year. unless they have another record year.

i had a feeling the ford escapes would be big sellers. i see the a lot around here. and i kinda figured lincoln was down. nobody really wants a navigator anymore (the escalade is what's "in" now). and you dont see many new lincoln sedans driving around.

the marauder will bring mercury back :)

i want an Infinity:)

They need to reduce the price a bit and maybe the sales would go up...:D Mainly so I can get a new truck!;)
