RE: The End Of The Car Dealership

The compounding effect of COVID is also supporting this, I've put in a purchase for a new car which typically I would have had in a few days weeks even. Now there is a 12 month delay in manufacturing and delivery. Absolutely ridiculous, in the interim I just have to wait!

Supply chains are screwed up all over the world. With cars, the chip shortages are killing them.

It could be another year or two before we see things settle down. This means it could be nasty for a while.

Ford could get all the F-150's on the road if they wanted to. The only chip they are missing is to help with MPG.
Without the chip they would miss 1 - 1.5 MPG per vehicle.

The issue is the US Gov Regulation on MPG for the Fleet.
If the Gov would waive that rule for these model years, we could get all the new cars already built and sitting idle waiting on chips into the supply chain and take pressure off of the used car market that affects mostly lower income citizens.

They Gov is making things worse.
