I read this ...

"The 2021 Mazda CX-5 and Subaru Forester crossovers both passed the 20K units per month mark in May. Here is a look at how successful the CX-5 model has become for Mazda.

In May, Mazda reported sales of 20,595 units of its highly successful CX-5 crossover. This marks the first time we remember it breaking that milestone, and it is a record for the model in America for Mazda.
May was a record-setting month for many automakers in America. Although scarcity looms large, the factories that could operate at capacity found enthusiastic buyers for the vehicles that came out of them. Traditionally, the Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, and Honda CR-V are 1-2-3 in sales in America for the most popular non-truck segment. Just behind that trio are the Chevy Equinox, Subaru Forester, and Mazda CX-5."

So the question is was Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, and Honda CR-V impacted by ship shortage early and thus inventory wasn't available and consumers had to 'settle' for the Mazda and Subaru?
or just that everybody and his uncle is buying/leasing new cars in the past months. At least 70% of my neighbours are with flashy new suvs and trucks still with temp tags. Spending spree is at all time high not just for cars. May be that has something to do with it. Same like housing, everybody wants one now vs 3 yrs ago.

Anyway, good for Mazda. The more it sells the better it may get.
