Ford said sales of its F-Series pickup rose more than 24 percent compared to April a year ago with overall sales up by nearly 18 percent.

General Motors and Chrysler each reported 11 percent growth last month with sales at Chrysler's Ram truck division rising almost 50 percent from a year ago. GM's GMC Sierra and the Chevrolet Silverado also saw significant sales gains.


So is that because construction is picking up or does this mean that in another two or three years I'll again be listening to short-sighted morons whining that it costs them soooooo much to fill trucks that never do anything except drive them to and from their office jobs?

According to the jobs report released today Construction and Government were the only sectors of the economy that shed jobs last month...

A one month old car would be under warranty.  It would be fixed at the dealership by mechanics who get paid hourly whether they're fixing vehicles or not.

Idiot.

Is the average age of a new car buyer still well north of 50 and decades older than it was 30 years ago? Yeah, you've still got a problem long term.

the portion of cars bought by the 18-34 set is heading back up to pre-recession levels.

the Koreans are making significant inroads into that demographic, with Japanese brands suffering the most.
