Canada's large car market continued to slide in October 2013, though not as harshly as it has earlier this year. Sales of big, mostly Detroit-badged machines were already low a year ago. October's 1306 units represents a 4% decline. 

As a result of massive declines at Buick and Chevrolet, where sales of the LaCrosse and Impala have both been chopped in half compared with the first ten months of 2012, large car volume is down 21% so far this year. 

It doesn't help that Canada's current top seller, the Chrysler 300, is down 7%. Nor is the segment lifted by the disappearance of the Buick Lucerne or slowing sales of the Ford Taurus, Hyundai Genesis sedan, and Nissan Maxima.

Toyota Avalon volume was up 267% in October, but the Avalon was rising from the basement, and it's hardly made any progress toward the ground floor. Only 88 Avalons were sold last month.

  2. Thanks for sharing this blog. I love your post.Wow!Those cars would definitely make heads turn. Cars like these are usually a part of a collection, considerably as valuable cars because of their rarity.
