shortage of Rondos to sell?

Dealers around Louisville/Southern Indiana as well as the general midwest area seem to have no Rondos at all. None. Zip. Not even one on the showroom floor. One dealer here tells me they just plain can't get any.

Anyone else observe or hear this?

Sure would account for those reduced sales comps.

I was sure this was happening in the US based on the figures that came out for May and now these June figures. However, in June even with the reduction, they still outsold the Mazda 5 which was ahead of the previous year at 1416 units (this is for the US only).

I would think in Canada the supply is pretty good, based on my visit to the dealer last week he seemed to have a good supply at around 8-10 in stock and there was also one on display in the local mall.

not so in Canada as KIA showed a 2.2% gain over August 2007, selling 3,875 units.
Big shocker is Honda with a 18% decrease, but I have read that they ran out of vehicles that they needed.

largest decrease for the month is Porsche at 40.4%
largest increase for the month is Smart at 117.5%
