Reuters said General Motors of Canada scraped out a 0.4% increase in sales to shift 26,623 cars and light trucks in February, compared with 26,516 last year.
But DaimlerChrysler Canada saw a 20% drop in combined vehicle sales to 12,713 in February, compared with 15,887 last year, the report noted.
Ford of Canada reportedly sold 14,884 cars and light trucks in February, down 14.6% from 17,437 vehicles in the same period last year.
