Sales of light trucks rose slightly, from 41,107 in January of 2008 to 45,885 last month. Detroit’s three automakers posted higher sales than at the same time last year; Toyota and Honda saw a drop.
Canadian dealerships sold over 81,000 vehicles in the 31 days of January. In January of 2002, that figure was around 93,500. A breakdown of Detroit’s brands should come in a couple weeks.
