     New or used? Big difference, both in cost of vehicle and in insurance rates. And remember, auctions can count as showrooms.

    These would be new car sales.  GM and Chrysler saw increases particularly in their sedan sales, Ford was a little off but not significantly and that seemed to be mostly because sales of the Silverado pickup dropped, but Ford has been hyping their new redesign for that model so people interested in that particular car may be waiting for the 2013 model to hit.  Honda and Toyota were up, Nissan saw a small decline.

    ROFLMFAO!!!

    I'm in the business, and two important things happened:  1) manufacturers have introduced large buyer incentives, plus 0% financung in most cases  and, dovetails to  2) Lots of new buyers HAVE to, as their cars are older and highewr miled. Hmmmm..... 4 years..... GM & Chrysler bailout, anyone?  Used auto parts stores/dealers sales going through the roof? Most folks were fixin' 'em rather than trade 'em in.With 0% finincing (or some deals under 2%, AND the buyer keeps the incentives), it's easy to talk yourself into a new car. So, in a way, the Amateur In Chief can take some credit for this, as FINALLY more people than the govt and GE (how's that wonderful Volt working out?) are buying GM vehicles.

    Many dealrs are offering $3000 for trade ins, some even advertise for "clunkers". What sane person won't accept $3000 trade for a $1000 vehicle? Doesn't show anything about consumer confidence any more than folks buying Honey Bakes Hams at Easter. Folks will buy the ham, and folks will buy the cars, when the price is right, and the incenvites work for them. Plus that low interest rate......

    I have to add..it's difficult to believe the right's argument that the economy isn't doing any better..especially when you go to the mall and see people lined up to buy a $600 IPhone...

    Good news for the country makes the republicans mad. The GOP is willing to throw our country under the bus just so they can win elections.

    Paragraph 1 and paragraph 2 of this post seem to contradict each other en route to supporting the OP. 

    Anyway, thank you for explaining how it's coming about.

    Well said.  And all the bluster is rooting against the economy.
