Well, folks, here are the numbers to show you just how bad U.S. auto sales are tanking. From a sobering 55 percent decrease at Chrysler LLC to a surprising eight percent increase at Subaru, we've listed below all the companies who have reported January sales from worst to best. All sales were in the U.S. and for the month of January 2009; percentage decreases are in comparison to January of 2008.
Let's hope some good news from Team Obama spurs sales, increases access to credit, or at least replaces aging USPS mail trucks with, say, languishing PT Cruisers and Chevy HHRs. Let's also hope this is the worst; we don't relish peering any further into this automotive black hole.
