The current vehicle shortage situation

What strange times we live in where your old used vehicle is worth more money than a new vehicle off the lot. If you can find a new vehicle on a lot. It just keeps getting tougher and tougher to find a new vehicles out there. I think it's on purpose myself. They can blame chip shortages, and material shortages, but I think the ultimate goal is to push people to battery powered vehicles. Now I am all for that but the way they are approaching it seems wrong. I believe they are creating a vehicle shortage to push people that way. You can't buy a gasoline of diesel powered vehicle if there are none to buy. That is why oil will keep rising as well. Plus it is what most oil companies are or already have invested into power companies. They will double dip or come out on top either way.

I have been looking steady the last two weeks now, and it's not even about a shortage, but about just the rising MSRP cost of all vehicles in general. Any 2022 new vehicle, no matter what trim seems to have increased anywhere from 4k-6k.

This whole vehicle shopping is exhausting. No one has anything you want, and you must keep in communication with the dealer, instead of them wanting your business. It's a total role reversal.

Why are you looking, once agan, for a new vehicle? WHat happened to buying a vehicle and driving it for 20+ years?

I think our new one is slowly burning oil, according to Sabura it's normal, I say otherwise. I have a 22-year-old Honda that doesn't burn a drop.

I talked to my niece yesterday and we were talking, and she brought up how she has been searching for a new vehicle since last fall. She said she even put a deposit down on a new truck and it's been almost 6 months now and she called them last week and they told her they still don't know when and expect it to be another 6 months, so she said "well give me my money" back then. She also told me that she went to look at a Chevy Tahoe and they didn't have any in stock but had a used one in stock, but she said they were asking more for the used one than they would sell the new one for. She told them that doesn't make any sense and they said that is just the way it is now.

Electric is fine and dandy but you know they will just raise electric prices. There will be a shortage as the grids won't be able to keep up. Can see this happening already. Same problems just different source.
