Auto Sales

1. Auto sales are widely used and researched statistics. Those interested in these statistics include citizens buying or selling cars, car companies, governments, car dealerships, current and potential investors, statistical firms and ratings groups.
2. In the US, domestic automakers report sales monthly. The figures are reported to the US Department of Commerce where they are seasonally adjusted and then reported to the public within the first few days of the next month.
3. December proved to be a successful end to the year for most automakers as sales increased by 11%. Toyota was the only company to report a decline (6%) and Hyundai-Kia sales were up 37%. GM, Ford and Chrysler all posted gains of 7.5%, 3.5%, and 16%, respectively.
