  1. How about sales figures for September weighed against the total incentive dollars spent for the big three? The numbers listed are for 2011 models are year end vehicles with the highest incentives. Incentives dollars spent in 09/10 versus incentives 09/11 would be great to add to this evaluation.

    Bad stuff?

  2. The Chevy ad execs must have been addled when they approved the Volt ad showing the owner getting asked, not once but twice, the irritating question "thought those were electric" or something similar when he stopped at a gas station. My immediate reaction the first time I saw this ad was "If you're gonna get queried like that everywhere you go, I wouldn't have one if they gave it to me". The ad needs to be pulled...sooner rather than later. Galen Creighton, Euless, TX
