Revenue was $3.88 billion, missing the Street estimate of $3.99 billion.
According to the analysts, sales and profit trends at the company have suffered lately, amid shifting, post-pandemic macro dynamics, and a confluence of unfavorable factors, including waning demand for more pricey pre-owned vehicles, elevated operational costs, and internal missteps.
