2013 Honda CivicTwo of the hottest-selling cars in America aren't quite as hot as they used to be. The Toyota Camry and Honda Civic are both seeing dealer supplies increase in the face of renewed competition from the much-improved Detroit Three.

According to a report from The Detroit News, the Camry's dealer inventory is 15 days higher than its seasonal average, while the Civic is 25 days above average. Things aren't expected to get better for Toyota and Honda, as RBC Capital Markets analyst Joseph Spak marked the two Japanese offerings as "at risk for reduced output."

The Detroit Three, meanwhile, are seeing supplies dwindle as demand increases, especially for the Ford Fusion, which has seen an 18-percent increase in 2013 sales, and the Chevrolet Cruze, which was second only to the Camry in June 2013 sales.

Ford currently produces the Fusion at its Hermosillo, Mexico, factory, but to cope with demand, it has added a second shift at its Flat Rock, Michigan plant, which will begin production of the Fusion later this year.

          Sucks but true. The Mazda 6 is a better car in probably every single way imaginable but I would love to tell my dad to buy another camry since they are built in the USA. The problem is the Camry is not the leader it once was. It's still a very solid car, solid engine, solid transmission but the interior quality and design is not nearly as good as the Mazda 6.

          The thing is I don't spend my hard earn money that way. If you still believe in free market and competition, then u should know that I will buy what have best built quality, styling, and driving dynamic. My parents do have a few Toyota that built in U.S. Please do not assume my patriotism just because what I buy.... If you keep supporting one company that way, they will screw u up eventually. That being said, the Chicago built Explorer is a nice car I would love to own :)

      Good, that stupid bland Camry can go to hell! Enough with Toyota resting on past success and giving its sheep barely enough products.

          Upping your game with a 1.6L turbo that catches fire and cannot be driven? Yeah, that launch snafu was enough for me to pause on Ford...again.

          PLus the Fusion Ecoboost engines get comparatively lousy mileage and subpar performance.

          • 1 Year Ago
          The engine wasn't the issue. It was a PCM issue and was corrected immediately. As far as performance and mileage, you obviously haven't driven one. I know plenty of people who are getting the estimated combined or highway MPG as their average.

          You have to remember that Ford is new to the mass produced turbo game. GM has steady build steady platform in the US since before 2005 in the 2.OT LNF(throw in Saab for a much longer period). Which also spawned from Europe where they both had small turbos.

      It's about time, the Camry and Civic have been a couple of the most mundane cars on the road for the last 15 years.

      Current Detroit offerings in these classes are superior to the imports in all conceivable ways. The only competitive import really is Mazda. Do not believe me, go drive a Cruze or a Focus then get into a civic. Shocker of your life.

        Aside from being quieter, what is superior about the Chevy Cruze? As to the Focus- it has a sub-par auto trans. I see no obvious advantage over its competitors.

        I agree that Mazda is starting to gain some ground with their new products, but don't forget about Subaru as well.

        Mexico buys American cars and no foreign company has successfully sold cars in Japan. Fusion production will begin big time at Flat Rock Michigan very shortly. If Americans support the Detroit 3, the jobs will come back to America. The Dodge Journey is coming back well while Honda, Toyota and Mazda are opening factories in Mexico.

        Cruze sales were over 70% retail last month. Congratulations! Your comment has been rendered [more] meaningless.

        Ahh tisk tisk, sorry your dissension with GM. Someone who fails and wants to succeed eventually learns from his/her mistakes, and makes the necessary changes to prosper in the future. This is the case for General Motors now. So don't try to relive what was done in the past (The Cavalier), sir, but be weary of what the future holds (The Chevy Cruze)!

      Drive the Camry and Fusion back to back. That's all you'll need to understand. Ford figured it out.

        Camry and Fusion are big fleet sellers. Neither does well in comparison tests.

          Comparison tests don't sell cars, despite what many people think. Word of mouth, loyalty, and reliability are considered well before comparison tests.

      No surprise here guys. The Camry and Civic were really just warmed over versions of the previous generation (and Corolla with it's 28 year old transmission for that matter). Nothing much was improved on them which made Honda rush to touchup the Civic a bit more and even that is not helping. Competition is flying right on by.

      I'm not surprised...both of these manufacturers not only produce inferior quality to the Europeans and Americans but also produce the most mundane, boring , least enthusiastic "fahrgefuel" on the planet. I am surprised though that the American public which otherwise is very prudent with its money, is so gullible as to purchasing such low quality vehicles. There should be many articles on the gullibility of the american consumer...tha should really be the subject of a serious psychological study
