Has the Government Shut down the Automotive Industry?
So, the government was shut down for sixteen days. Did that keep shoppers away from the car lots? Apparently not! According to Michigan Live, car companies, including the Big Three, reported a combined sales of 1.2 million vehicles in October. Doesn’t sound much like a slump does it? In fact, it was an eleven percent increase over last year’s figures.
According to Jessica Caldwell, a senior analyst at Edmunds.com, “This was a really interesting month. Probably one that hasn’t seen such volatility in quite some time. It definitely had a lull when the government shutdown went longer than people anticipated.” Caldwell elaborated with the fact that October sales picked up as soon as the Shut Down was over. Each of the Detroit car makers reported double-digit gains in October. Many automakers and experts have actually upped their yearly sales estimates from the low- to mid-15 million ranges to around 15.6-15.9 million vehicles. At least for now, the automotive industry seems “shut down” proof.

I have been using this shop for about 2 years now. It is clean and they have accommodations for the customers, like water, coffee , pastry, and soda. They even have multiple phone chargers for your use. The guys are always friendly and attenative. They always get me right in. The prices are fair and reasonable. They stand behind their work. No extra or unexpected charges. Great place to have your vehicle serviced or repaired.
