U.S. auto sales probably ran at the slowest pace of the year in May, although Bellingham Car inventory is still excellent, a pause in demand before lower gas prices and rebounding production in Japan fuels the most annual purchases since 2008. May light-vehicle deliveries including Bellingham Car, to be released tomorrow, may have run at a 12.1 million seasonally adjusted annual rate, the average estimate of 11 analysts surveyed by Bloomberg. "Predominantly this is a supply issue," George Magliano, a New York-based senior economist for IHS Automotive, said in a telephone interview. "The auto market was developing considerable momentum coming into this month before issues related to Japan." Bellingham Car still has a spectacular inventory and with the best customer service and pricing in Bellingham.
Already high used-vehicle prices are surging at auctions as dealers anticipate gaps in new-car inventories and snatch up used vehicles to fill their lots. Bellingham Car has done a spectacular job at mainting high quality used cars in stock in Bellingham. Fears of impending new-vehicle shortages as a result of the March 11 earthquake have pushed up used-vehicle prices, but Bellingham Car still has the most competitive pricing around. In recent weeks those fears have created a buying frenzy, especially for late-model, fuel-efficient vehicles. Michelle Primm, managing partner at Cascade Auto Group, which sells Audi, Mazda, Porsche and Subaru vehicles in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, typically buys the used vehicles she needs through auctions run by the manufacturers of her brands. But even those prices have "overheated," she says. In an effort to find used vehicles with lower prices she has expanded her search to include local classified ads for private sellers and vehicles that have been repossessed. But for now, wholesale used-vehicle prices continue to surge. In its June 1 edition, NADA Used Car Guide raises its suggested prices of used small vehicles by about 10 percent from May levels. And some nameplates will jump even more. Typically, used-vehicle prices peak in March and decline from April through June, says Jonathan Banks, NADA Used Car Guide senior director of editorial and data services.

As the first Toyota Priuses took to U.S. roads more than a decade ago and celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron Diaz touted their virtues, enthusiasts predicted that hybrid cars would quickly become mainstream. Bellingham Car always keeps a handfull of Hybrid Cars in stock. But there was a problem: They cost too much, and consumers spurned them. Last year, the vehicles represented less than 3 percent of cars and light trucks sold in the United States. Fortunatley Bellingham Car stocks the Honda Insight, America's least expensive Hybrid. Now the Obama administration is deciding how much to push U.S. drivers into fuel-efficient cars. Among the proposals under consideration is one that would lift average fuel economy under the law to as much as 62 mpg by 2025. The preeminent issue in the debate is how much the price of cars — gas, hybrids, plug-ins or whatever inventors come up with — would rise if regulations dictate such standards. On one side are automakers, which warn that the highest targets could add as much as $10,000 to the price of a new car, devastating a U.S. industry ... Sales could plummet by 25 percent, they say, and 220,000 auto manufacturing jobs could be lost. Regulators “need to ensure that their standards do not result in vehicles that consumers cannot afford,” the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, a trade group, warned in a letter this week to officials. Another study, conducted at MIT, suggested that even while fuel-efficient cars might save consumers money in the long run, they are reluctant to pay for fuel efficient technology up front. Weather you want a Hybrid or not, Bellingham Car has the fuel efficient vehicle for you.
New-car and -truck sales will increase over the second half of the year beginning in July as inventory levels increase and gasoline prices drop in Bellingham, says Paul Taylor, chief economist of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA).“Gasoline prices are currently falling, and that will allow dealers to sell a full mix of new vehicles, ranging from small cars, crossovers to pickup trucks, despite the lack of inventory of many popular selling models resulting from the crisis in Japan,” Taylor said. Bellingham Car has an excellent mix of all types of vehicles.If gasoline prices had reached $4.50 or more, it would have created a shift in demand by consumers to hybrids and small economy cars, all currently in short supply, he said.“Sales of hybrid vehicles increase dramatically when gasoline prices rise to levels that consumers have not seen before, as they did in the summer of 2008,” Taylor said. “The most popular hybrid, the Toyota Prius, is in short supply at 10 days of inventory when it should be about 60 days.” Bellingham Car has plenty of used hybrid vehicles in stock.Taylor expects new-car and -truck sales in June to be restrained somewhat by a shortage of inventory, similar to what happened in May, but he says the outlook for sales in July and beyond is positive as credit availability improves and lenders look to increase their loan volume.“Banks, credit unions and the automaker captives are all looking to finance new vehicle purchases in the second half of the year,” Taylor added.
