Detroit's Big Three on Catastrophe

Due to the effect of World Financial Crisis, the U.S. Big Three Automakers companies are in the downfall situations which asking for a lifeline of about $25 Billion in order to save their company for bankruptcy. According to the officials of the big three, the aid of the government is very important in order to save the company and save also the jobs of about 3 million employee of the Detroit's big three. Imagine, 3 million employee will be affected if the Big three will turn into bankruptcy. No wonder, if this can happen, it might cause damage on the economy of U.S. As we all know, General Motors GM, Chrysler, and Ford are the U.S. Big three car makers which is not only largest around U.S. They are also belong to the largest automakers in the world. For every decades they took the spots of top three when it comes to sales and production. Though in some part, the foreign automakers like Toyota and Honda is quite relieving them into the top three spots. Especially this year, due to the financial crisis, foreign automakers have slight take over into the spots.

If the Big Three are not bailout by U.S. Government, there might be a strong problems with regards to car industry not only in United States but also in car industry all over the world. The Big Three have their own reputable identity in world auto industry. If ever they can't survive into the financial catastrophe, their wide network in global car industry will affect the economy of every countries which they have their network. If that will happen, it might be a worst scenario for every individuals that engage into the companies of Big Three. In that matter, it might be a serious scenario also for the government on how they can give jobs for over 3 million people that lose their job because of losing the Big Three automakers. This will serves as economic disaster if this will happen. The Federal bailout of $25 Billion for the Big three is very important in order to save the automakers in their networks, their employees, and the economy. This is only the solution in order to save the Detroit Big Three in falling. If the automakers fail, there will be a devastating impact on the overall American economy which lead into more economic problems.

If the Big Three catastrophe is continue until first quarter of 2009, their might be on danger on not shown already in car industry. Some of the solutions thought by the government is merging of those automakers in order to survive from the financial turmoil. Even U.S. President-elect Barack Obama (according to New York Times), Obama asks Pres. Bush to provide help for automakers. Obama urged an emergency support for the auto industry. But the congress and the Big Three officials are still on the discussion if the government will put up a Bailout $25 Billion this year for the automakers and another $25 Billion next year. The decision is still inconstant because of Pres. Elect. Obama is not yet takes the office. The Bush administration is still in control but it remains no direct answer coming from it if they're going to give the bailout.

Brisbane motor show cancelled
Nowhere to go: The economic crisis is having a negative effect on motor shows around the world.

Organisers scrap Brisbane motor show as Toyota and VW join list of non-exhibitors

By TERRY MARTIN 24 November 2008

Story Source: GoAuto

THE 2009 Brisbane International Motor Show (BIMS) has been cancelled after Toyota and Volkswagen joined a growing list of car companies who decided not to attend the significant Queensland event.

GoAuto has learnt that Holden was also still to decide whether to exhibit, which compounded the problem for organisers who had also received cancelled bookings and knock-backs from several other crowd-pulling brands including Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Lamborghini.

As a result, and despite the fact that Audi, Land Rover, Ford and Mitsubishi were among the marques to confirm participation, the Australian Automobile Dealers Association (Queensland) has decided to hold the event over until 2010.

It was scheduled to have opened on February 6, 2009.

“It had just gone too far,” BIMS public relations manager Chris Nixon told GoAuto. “We didn’t have Volkswagen, we didn’t have Lexus, we didn’t have Toyota – and we got to the point, really, where we believed that it was just going to be a fruitless exercise.

“We were concerned about the expectations of the public.”

Mr Nixon said there had been no deadline for exhibitors so much as an “ongoing assessment of the situation”.

While the AADA (Qld) will take an unspecified financial hit as a result – which GoAuto understands will not run into the millions of dollars – Mr Nixon said the show’s significance in generating sales during the normally quiet first quarter could see the industry experience a worse-than-anticipated sales trough next year.

“It’s a big blow for the motor industry,” he said. “The Queensland motor industry relies heavily on the motor show because it’s the first motor show of the year, and it’s early in the year – it gives them a pretty solid kick-start.

“That’s normally a quiet time and they come out of February either with a significant number of sales or a significant number of leads in the case of the prestige brands. So to not have that is really a setback.

“The irony is that Brisbane has always been a strong retail market, and the Brisbane motor show has always been a strong retail event.

“In normal economic circumstances, we wouldn’t be facing this. We are also mindful of the fact that a number of car companies clearly are reassessing whether they do motor shows and, if they do them, how they do them.

“This is going to give them (AADA Qld) an opportunity to take a breather, if you like, and look at what works, look at what they (car companies) might require, and consult the exhibitors and find out what things they want at motor shows to ensure that they’re given a reason to come back.”

AADA (Qld) chairman Chris Beecham said he was confident that the event, which was first staged in 1964, would return in 2010.

“We will return in 2010 with a fresh and relevant focus,” Mr Beecham said.

“Along with the economic circumstances that have caused this decision, the motor industry is clearly re-evaluating its involvement in motor shows and we will meet that challenge.

“We already had some new concepts to introduce in 2009 to attract exhibitors and show visitors and these will be included in 2010, along with other ideas developed from the feedback of car companies.”

Mr Beecham also emphasised that Brisbane was not alone in losing brands to its event, pointing to the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney earlier this year and the Los Angeles auto show held last week.

The list of car companies pulling out of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next January is also starting to grow. Last week, Mitsubishi joined Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Land Rover and Suzuki in deciding not to attend.

Porsche has also chosen not to exhibit again in Detroit, one of the most significant motor shows on the global automotive calendar, having not had a presence in Motown since 2006.

“We appreciate the decisions of manufacturers and importers to not come to Brisbane has largely been forced upon them by budget cuts by their overseas masters,” Mr Beecham said.

“The overseas problems have come all the way down the line to the local level and we have to take responsible decisions. Without a number of key brands, the show would not have been attractive to the public, who expect to see a comprehensive line-up of what the industry has for sale.”

Car Sales for 2008

Car sales in Australia are improved last year 2007, but this year its quiet flipped because of some global problems like the increase of fuel price in International market in the previous quarters of 2008. Australia have a more than 15 million motor vehicles on the road which is about 77% are passenger vehicles. Last year over 1 million vehicles are sold in Australia which is 60% of that was passenger vehicle cars and the remaining percentage are sold SUVs.

According to the car sales from November, 2007 to November, 2008, the car sold are seasonally adjusted depends on every month of the year. And it depends also into the car sales of every city in Australia. Because some of the cities have decrease each sales and some are increase. But In general, the sales are depreciate this year because of fuel price. But it doesn't mean that car sales are totally lowered in percentage, there's a little bit adjustment only. Because of this quarter of the year, the car sales are on the go for booming it again. Due to the lowering of fuel price in international market, many of car buyer are on the go again to buy some cars.

The most car model sold are Toyota which have an about 22.5 percent share. Next car model sold are Holden who has 14%, and Ford that has 10% market share in Australia. Because of the number of passenger cars in Australia, the most sold car are Toyota corolla which is often to be a passenger car. So, you can notice the depreciation of private vehicles sales. In that matter, the fuel turmoil during the previous quarters of the year is the main reason why the car sales are low. That's why, car industry are still on recovery in this quarter.

About the sales of used cars versus the new cars, used cars are more sales than new cars. No wonder because all over the world. In car industry, used cars are most in retail because of the economical price of it. If you compare of the new cars, used car price are almost half of the price of the new car. When it comes to the quality of the engine, new car is advantage. But when it comes to the price, used car is advantage. But you need to check the quality of the used car you want to buy. Since it was used already, you are not assure of the quality of it. You need to check the parts of it (Engine, Body, Chassis). Unlike the new cars that you don't need to check it because it was surely on the good condition. In Australia, used cars are greater in sales because of the lower price of it than the new cars. The best example or used cars great sales are this year 2008. Because or the fuel hike, car buyers are made their own choice to buy used cars in order to get a lowest price. In generalization, the win-win situation when it comes to the car sales this 2008 was in favor of used car dealers.

Car Fuel Consumption

Australian cars or cars from Australia have different fuel consumptions. The fuel consumptions of cars in Australia are depends on the brand of the car, type of the car, about the driving skills of the driver, and it has something to do with the road also. It has something to do also in the engines of the cars. And of course the fuel consumption of new car is different from the used cars already. According to the used car dealers, their car is less in fuel consumption. Really? Yes, I agree on that but like what I've said it depends on the engine and type of the car. Fuel consumptions is one of the major topic when it comes to buying a car. Because the price of fuel is high. So, we need to buy a car that consume only less fuels. For example, we need to find a car that consume 25km/L. But usual cars can only have 11km/L consumptions. Its up to you were to find a car that consume 1 liter of gas that runs for 25km. For me, I want to feature the used cars from Australia that gives full satisfactions to us as a car lovers.

There are lot of used cars that offers online. If we talk on the fuel consumption of it. It was merely deals on the economical consumptions of fuel. Well, fuel consumption of a car is one of the mainstream in finding a perfect car. You have a good looking car but it consume fuels like drinking a bottle of liquor in 1 minute. In finding a car, don't just look for the nice look of it. Try to make your choice in the quality of the engine and the fuel consumption of it. If we talk on the fuel consumptions, it is better to find a car that can run at least 15km/L. So that's good enough instead of having a car that can run only 10km/L. There are difference between the fuel consumptions of the car in city consumptions than on highway consumptions. City consumptions are driving only around the city while highway consumption is driving going to out of town or have a visit in the provinces. In Australia, the city fuel consumption is lesser than highway consumption. For example, city consumption can run 9-10km/L while the highway consumption can only run 6-8km/L.

In causes of burning more fuel, there might be improper inflation of the car tires, there might be too much weight of the car causing by many things inside of it, and there are also some engine accessories that keep the engine burning more fuels. For you to get more mileage and having an economical fuel consumptions, avoid traffics because traffics can keep your car burning a fuel. Drive smoothly, don't put your weight on the the gas pedal. Step on the gas smoothly. Don't carry more than you need on your car. Reduced unnecessary accessories into your cars. And for having a trip, make sure your car is properly maintained. Especially the engine of your car. Keep on checking it. Because if there is a problem into the engine of your car, it might cause more fuel consumptions.
