Local News


Many automakers are showing good car sales so far in 2012. 1110 KBND’s Kelly Bleyer talked with some local car dealers if the same is true here. Chrysler and Ford both saw increases during the first month of 2012.   Honda and Toyota are also on the rise. Because the average American is hanging on to their vehicles for ten to eleven years, many people are in the market. Used cars sales are doing a brisk business. Bruce Klouda is the General Manager of Lithia Motors in Bend. “With the highest demand for used cars, because people are hanging on to their cars longer, it is impacting the availability. You get supply from trade, street or action, 60% to 70% from auction. So it's highly impacted, causing a shortage of used vehicles.” Nationally, auto dealers say vehicles are staying in their lots fewer than 50 days is a good sign: demand is returning to the market.
