CR-V sales continue to be excellent! Up 1.7% Feb 2019 over Feb 2018, and up 10.5% Year-to-date 2019 over 2018.

This is good.

Internally Honda will split their sales volume into what is known as promoted volume and nonpromoted volume. Nonpromoted is your loyalists or your less price sensitive folks, and strong nonpromoted sales and growth YOY is a sign of a healthy business. Promoted growth is fine too, but it is subsidized and you make less money that way. Maximizing total volume while not subsidizing your base (giving deals to folks who would have bought anyway) is the goal, but it's not easy. Then there's responding to competition, managing inventory, etc that all gets factored in.

We do know that Honda bought down the price to drive volume last quarter, as they mentioned extra promotion pricing as putting downward pressure on profits. Again, not a bad thing but it is something that they can't do long term.

Some car companies have tried an always-low-price option where they never promote but generally provide a lower average price always. Saturn comes to mind in particular.

I said it before, but the one thing I don't miss is walking up to the wrong car in the parking lot. You can keep your high sales! :D
For once we agree. I am not happy that I see 3 or 4 Gen 5 CR-V's parked right near mine but hey at least every time two owners meet at the same time we end up discussing how much we love our vehicles. I have now met several people that way.

YOU are nothing more than a troll. Thank God that you are not one of the folks that spent $30-35000 and got a defective auto. Pray that karma doesn’t jump up and bite you.
Hmmm is that some rain drops I am feeling :)

BTW Jimmy boy didn't you post this


I am with you on not buying a new CRV. I have a ‘14 and test drove an ‘18. Loved it. Right size, good acceleration, good economy. Fit and finish were great. Came home and started exploring the web, WHOA!!!! I am not going to take a chance on gas in the oil. Checked out the future ‘19 RAV4 and am now waiting for that. Should be out in October/November; I can wait. Honda is putting its head in the sand and hoping that the warmer weather will get this out of people’s minds - until autumn.
So another person who has never owned a Gen 5 CR-V and never plans on owning one is making a comment about it's reliability:bluduh:
BTW hows the 2019 RAV4 :rofl:

As for Karma, I am not worried. I have a full warranty and the Regional Honda Manager is a friend of mine. I also do not keep my vehicles past three years so it will still be under warranty when I sell it. :beb:

This thread like so many here, has gone way off the road, into the woods and isn't going to get out anytime soon. Closing.
