okay, is our country is trying to do it's best in resysling, less pollution, reducing this and that....why every year do car companies get to release thousands if not more cars of diferent stlye, color, speed whatever, we as humans only have 2 feet, can only be in one car at a time and really don't get a new car on average about 8-10 years, and the way the economy is goitn now, we are trying to drive our cars till it falls apart, so we don't have that new car payment to add to all the other things we have to pay. so why are the manufactures allowed to keep turning cars out year after year, then put the year befores cars on sell and they still sit on the lot and son't sell, when is enough, enough?

As long as people want cars, they will be produced :D It is as simple as that xD

I think that we need to stop the production of cars until we have distributed a lot of what we already have to distribute. At least, slow them down for the moment. If people are not using the vehicles that we already have out there, or vehicles are wrecked, then we need to find a way to recycle every bit of it. We do not need to have more than what people are buying. With the same idea in mind, we need to stop building houses until the empty ones are taken, or old, empty homes are demolished and properly disposed of. We don't need to be building more houses or living space if we still have a lot that can be taken.

Spalladino hit it right on the head. I work in the automotive industry, and just like any other industry or business, when people are buying your product or services, you have job security. There is a lot of people where I work who are gettin a little worried. Besides that, people love their cars. Some people even collect cars. Some people like muscle cars, some like SUV's, some like trucks. It's all a supply and demand issue. If people are buying cars, the manufacturers are gonna keep puttin them out. But, like you said about the economy, they're not turning them out as much as you might think. I work for a company that makes power steering pumps for cars and trucks, and several lines, including mine have been shut down, and every time they want to hold plant wide meetings, we wonder if this is the one in which they're gonna tell us we no longer have a job. As far as I'm concerned, I'm anxiously waiting for the day that people start buying cars again by the truck load. It means I get to keep my job.

Because we live in a free market system where the government does not control private businesses to the extent that they can tell them what to produce and how much they can produce. As long as people are buying cars, they will be making them.
