The June sales figures for the West European passenger car market are not as bad as they look according to JD Power-LMC. Their assessment of the June numbers is that the market is stabilising after the declines of the first four months. JD Power-LMC says that for the second consecutive month, the seasonally adjusted annualised selling rate (SAAR) - at 14.4 million units - actually increased after taking into account the impact of fewer reporting days.
