Thanks to those who gave positive feedback. Glad you enjoyed some colorful graphs on a Tuesday morning.

Again the question, who's doing that (planning)? I was merely responding to those who seem to fear the day when they may be "forced" to trade in their car and the unusually low resale value the Focus commands. As this small subset of data suggests, they may take a bath but it's no more of a bath than they'd take with a competitor's car. Maybe for some this will assuage their fear somewhat.

I wondered about that connection too. But why would the region the factory is in have an unusual amount of used stock? The factory's not dumping used Cruzes on the local market. A few hundred plant workers may have bought them but in a region of several hundred thousand that would be a blip on the radar. I'm not seeing the connection...
