Our Thoughts

Extremely strong first quarter. With March modestly up 3%...was there carry over from 2011? Impressive pick up sales. Some initial shuffling of positions in most segments. Honda and especially Toyota are flexing their muscles in the first quarter. GM needs to raise its game. CPO vehicles continue their hot streak.

Thank You
