Slow truck sales, and looming deals for mid-size cars [video chat]

October 03, 2012|By Jerry Hirsch

Edmunds.com senior analyst Jessica Caldwell talks about where the auto market is headed, outlines the intense competition for buyers of family sedans and what's behind less-than-robust truck sales. 

U.S. auto sales jumped 13% in September compared with a year ago and represent one sector of the U.S. economy that’s firing on all cylinders. With the exception of Nissan, the major foreign nameplates had strong, double-digit sales gains in September, with Toyota and Honda rebounding from depleted inventory and depressed sales caused by the earthquake in Japan last year. General Motors and Ford went into a stall last month.
