Chevrolet and Ford are discontinuing the Ford Fiesta, Ford Taurus, while Chevrolet is stopping production of the Chevrolet Sonic. Analysts suspect that it is due to consumers moving more towards SUV and Crossover type vehicles given gas prices are somewhat low right now. I suspect it may be due to the issues that these vehicles have had. For example, Sonic owners have complained about the engine, transmission and starter conditions for quite some time. Those are accessible here. Car Complaints was also quick to pick up on these complaints as well.
Both Ford and GM plan to stop making three cars for the U.S. market, as they continue to shift their focus toward popular and high-margin SUVs and trucks, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing sources.
General Motors will stop making the small Chevrolet Sonic car, possibly by the end of the year, the Journal reported. Ford plans to stop selling the comparable subcompact Fiesta in the U.S. and discontinue the larger Taurus sedan, once the best-selling car in the U.S.
Chevrolet declined to comment.
