Re: Lambda Sales Chart - January 08 Results

Interesting. I wonder why the Enclave dipped in January. Maybe the word got out on the 2-4 month waits and no one wants to deal with the wait anymore. I am in week 11 right now and am questioning whether the wait is worth it. Hopefully when I take delivery later this week (target arrival date is 2/8 at dealer) I will see it is worth it.

Re: Lambda Sales Chart - January 08 Results

It will definitely be worth the wait. The sales dip could be due to a shortage of vehicles. I know here in NJ, there are not many on dealer lots.

Or was it due to our lengthy transmission nagging posts?

Of the pool of potential Enclave buyers, how many really know about this forum?

Re: Lambda Sales Chart - January 08 Results

I ordered an Enclave the first week of Jan - had to order to get AWD with bench seat and trailering pkg. However if one of you close to Lewisburg WV is looking for an Enclave my local dealer has (and has had for quite awhile) 3 Enclaves on the lot. Small town (pop. 3000) with small and honest dealer. Most sales here are for 4WD pick-ups. This is not a commercial, just passing info where Enclaves are available from a dealer that I have dealt with for years. No mark-ups, no "bull", just honest country service.

I don't agree with the "Not many on the lots" (at least in my area). There are +-56 showing in stock or invoiced within about 60 miles of where I live. This is of course not completely accurate but probably close.
I think one thing that is hurting sales of the Enclave is that dealers still have the same "sell only at sticker price" mind set now as they did for the first few months after it's release when it was really hot.
The chart indicates that January was the worst month since July while sales of the Acadia continue to climb (about the same for Dec & Jan) over the same period.
The question is how many Enclaves, Acadia's & Outlooks were produced in these months? That will give you the true story of how many are out there.
I also wonder if the Enclave has "hit a wall" as far as sales go. Note that even when the third shift was running sales for those months didn't show the significant (33%) increase in sales one would expect.
The outlook is of course a dead duck IMHO as soon as the Chevy version starts rolling off the line in Tennessee.

As always just my opinion and we love ours!!

Re: Lambda Sales Chart - January 08 Results

Wouldn't the dip most likely be because of the removal of the third shift at the Delta Township Plant?

I did finally see a TV advertisement for Enclave last week. I guess they're finally to the point of not having sold every Enclave right away.

The commercials have been running for 6 months or more in the New York area.

Re: Lambda Sales Chart - January 08 Results

Thats interesting on the advertising. Here in the Philadelphia area I only saw Buick commercials for the last several months which highlighted all 3 vehicles but really only one shot of the Enclave. Then 2 weeks ago (around Buick Open time) we started getting the Tiger Woods Enclave commercials and now I seem to see Tiger & the Enclave at least once a day. Love them by the way.

My dealer has only 1 Enclave on the lot and it is a CX. He cant get them in fast enough.

Re: Lambda Sales Chart - January 08 Results

Are you saying there is something wrong with a CX, boy, some people. Seriously, I really didn't want leather and the CX has the same ride and quietness. :happy: :clap:

Yes, I read that the CX is not even built off the Lambda platform but instead built off of the old Chevy Nova platform :eek:


Ha, just kidding of course. No, I get how you may prefer non-leather. I originally tried to convince my wife to go cloth but to no avail! Also, there just seems to be so much extra included in the CXL. Not sure if my facts are right (maybe I am thinking of the Acadia) but was the power lift gate included in the CX? For some reason (I dont claim to always understand my wife) leather and power lift gate were the two most important qualities in the Enclave for her. ::)

The power lift gate is standard for both the CX and the CXL. :thumb:

Now are we picking on Novas. I'll have you know that my 68 Nova was cool. Looked good at the Drive In too. :happy: :clap:

My first car was a 67 Nova station wagon, a compact in its day, but probably as large as today's full size cars.
Now I am back with a station wagon (of sorts). I will be adding woodgrain paneling to my Enclave. :sosad:
