USA - Car sales rose 9.1% in February
Passenger car sales rose by 9.1% in February to 673,682 from 617,613. That was the best February for three years and took the market after two months trading to 6.8% ahead at 1,223,692 from 1,145,901. This is quite a surprise to many observers, and it is difficult to accept that the current trend can continue. Sales have been on the upward trail for the past five months and have convinced a few industry watchers that 1999 is set to show sustained growth, but we can't subscribe to that.
