Back in the saddle again......My friends and former work mates at FX Caprara are leading a surge in Jefferson County car sales that had December new car registrations at over 400....twice the average of December sales in recent years and nearly three times those of recession ravaged 2008.
Further, since getting the Chrysler/Jeep franchise for Watertown back, US brands of JEEP and Dodge have surged to number one and three in cars and Dodge is topping new truck sales. Another FX brand, Kia, logged second place in new car sales.
Over recent years, foreign brands had been leaving domestic sales in the dust.
The retail auto industry employs hundreds in the county and rebound has been pronounced of late. In particular, the Caprara rebound came after decades of competition. My read is that the consistent, plodding style of the dealership has won in the long run and the Chrysler comeback is downright newsworthy.
