General Motors and Ford posted sales increases of six percent, with Chrysler sales up five percent. The industry as a whole appears to be on track to see sales up four percent from a strong March of 2012.
Among foreign automakers, Volkswagen sales rose 3 percent last month while Nissan and Toyota sales were up 1 percent. March was Nissan’s best month ever.
Analysts say the strong sales have been pushed on by an aging car fleet, easier access to credit, and a lot of new models in showrooms.
