This week Ford released their November sales figures. In all, Ford Mustang sales were down 5.6 percent this November when compared to November of 2010. This November the company sold 3,865 Mustangs. In November of 2010 the company sold 4,093. Not a huge decline, but not an extremely large number by any means. In looking at the year, Ford had sold 65,381 Mustangs at the end of November. Last year at that time they'd sold 68,264. If December sees a big pick up in purchases, the Mustang might just break even for the year.
As for the competition, sales continue to climb. Chevrolet sold 5,127 Camaros in November. That's 23 percent more than they sold in November of 2010. Meanwhile, Dodge sold 2,996 Challengers in November, a 20 percent increase for the company. What gives? Well many folks I've talked to said they're not satisfied with the way Ford handled recent Mustang transmission issues. On the other hand, Ford says only three percent of transmissions were affected and each of the problems were addressed.
