Although the economy is growing, retail new vehicle sales are stalled and automakers are unable to offset rising costs with price increases. Instead, new-car incentives are needed to maintain demand of close to 17 million. There is some evidence that even sky-high incentives are losing their effectiveness in bringing in shoppers, especially for some domestic makes which are losing market share at an accelerating pace.

While new-car demand is stalled, used-car values are strong. Three years ago banks abandoned the leasing business because of losses, which have now reversed. The reduction in the number of off-lease units has changed the economics of the used-car marketplace. At the same time demand for clean, late-model used cars is high because of the availability of nonprime credit and manufacturer sponsorship of certified cars.

This web seminar will delve into the critical issues facing the automotive industry. You will get answers to the following questions:
