10 year old mustang platform is still shining brightly....2013-2014 Mustangs GT, Shelby, Boss will be the ones worth the money after the dust settles on the 2015. Camaros are getting beat this year so far. Dodge?.....crickets

With incentives, yes they are, but GM is slowly responding.

I still say the Mustangs are winning out this model year (so far) because the Ford faithful are disgusted with the 2015 design and those in the market for a new Mustang are buying the '14s and '15 numbers will be down, big time.

We may see all the muscle cars sales start dropping. It seems that GM, Ford and Dodge are all starting to get further away from the retro look again. Sad.

I'm surprised that any of these cars are selling well these days. Looks like what little steam the challenger had just ran out.

If I was a betting man I would disagree, I think the 15 will have very strong sales. But it will be interesting to see.

I don't know. It looks to me that the problem is really people that don't know what to do and panic. Yes there is definitely a problem with a switch that when you have 5000 keys and keychains on your key ring it could cause the car to turn itself off. Yes you will no longer have power assist and yes the airbags will be turned off, but the car can still be steered (and if it's going fast enough for the airbags to deploy it won't be that hard) and it can still be stopped but will require more effort.

I think they failed to take care of the issue sooner because the danger it creates is no more dangerous then if the engine simply ran out of gas or broke down with the exception that in this case, should there be an accident, the airbags wouldn't deploy.

They will take a huge hit for this in every way. Which sucks because they were starting to come back and this will set things back quite a bit I'm sure.

Their best hope is to make things right and continue to make great, safe cars like the Camaro.

I'm not surprised by Dodge. Their cars and trucks have a lot of issues - more than the average vehicle should have. It's a shame, too. The Challenger is a good-looking car.

I think the new Mustang will do very well once it out and the Camaro numbers will look low but still strong. Lets face it Mustang owners are going to buy the new Mustang and the numbers will jump past the Camaro, nothing wrong with that. i think its good that the numbers for both are close, it keeps GM and Ford looking for ways to improve the vehicles and we all benifit.

Dodge trucks don't have any more issues than any other truck build. I also have a 2012 Grand Cherokee that has been flawless. I don't know about there cars , but I'm sure they are not bad too. Have you read these forums much? Our cars have had their share of problems for sure. I started off with a lemon until I now got a good one.

This is probably the case with almost all newly designed vehicles for the last five years or so. New parts and manufacturing techniques combined with 869875 onboard sensors means that the car makers can get really good testing in before the new model goes live. Yes every now and then a company will have an issue that effects a small number of their cars but for the most part the 12+ million cars sold every year will be pretty reliable.

It means it is a little more popular than the the older style was last year.
