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]
