For years, mainly while Cerberus and Daimler were in charge, Chrysler was slammed by critics for having too many of its sales going to fleets rather than actual retail customers. Cut-rate fleet deals, many said, were covering up losses in retail sales. For May 2013, according to Automotive News, 22% of Chrysler’s sales were to fleets; that’s down from 26% in May 2012, which in itself was a decline from the year before.

Ford is relying on fleets for a full third of its sales, while GM has 26% of sales going to fleets.
