In its first 7000+ sales month in years, the Nissan Maxima went from its segment's sixth-best-selling car in October to the second-best-selling car in the class in November 2013. 

The Maxima isn't having a good year - sales are down 14% compared with the first eleven months of 2012 - and 2013's slow sales come after Maxima volume fell below 70,000 annual units for the seventh consecutive time. 2013 will be the eighth year below 70,000 annual Maxima sales for Nissan USA.

Still, when looking at November alone, the Nissan Maxima looked like a successful large car, outselling the trio of Hyundai-Kia products (sales of which include the Genesis Coupe, by Hyundai's choice) by a two-to-one ratio.

Is the Chevrolet Impala back and ready to roll? It's true that Impala sales jumped 20% in November 2013 compared with November 2012. Indeed, Impala sales were higher last month than they were in November 2011. But Chevrolet's 13,418 Impala sales in November are almost smack dab on the Impala's year-to-date monthly average of 13,288 sales per month, and it is that figure that's discouraging. 

Chevrolet sold nearly 14,300 Impalas per month in 2011 and more than 22,000 Impalas per month in 2008. Yes, the new car is on a different mission; a more premium-oriented mission. But for Chevrolet dealers who are also selling fewer Malibus, Camaros, and Volts, collecting fewer sales of their most expensive cars has got to be troubling, regardless of how many Sparks and Sonics they sell. The SS? Probably not the answer.
