As U.S. sales of the BMW 3-Series plunged 34% in March 2016, the BMW 3-Series’ sales tracking page became the most popular of its kind on GoodCarBadCar in April 2016.
Rocketing up from the tenth position in March to top spot in April, the 3-Series was joined by two other premium cars in the top 10. Mercedes-Benz’s C-Class was the eighth most popular vehicle on GCBC in April; the Tesla Model S grabbed the 3-Series’ former tenth spot.
Our engine review of the GMC Sierra’s 6.2L V8 continues to be the most popular review on GCBC. Not since last year has the Sierra not been the most popular review on GCBC.
Compared with March, visits to GCBC increased 10% in April 2016. Year-over-year, visits jumped 26%.
