Auto Sales Flat For November (It's A Good Thing)

December 2, 2009

If, as they say, "flat is the new up", then auto sales were way up last month. The U.S. saw 746,928 car and truck sales in November 2009 -- a statistical dead-heat with the 746,789 sold in November 2008. Of course, not every automaker stayed flat: Ford sales crept up .1%, while GM dipped 1.8% and Chrysler tumbled 25.5%. At the top of the heap? Nissan, which jumped 20.8%, and Hyundai, which surged a staggering 45.9%. The big news for now seems to be that the U.S. economy has stabilized -- which isn't as nice as growth, but if you recall the way everyone felt last November, it's a definite improvement. [DetNews]
