Auto industry executives are seeing signs that the nation's automobile industry is beginning to stabilize after months of free-falling sales that have threatened the viability of some of the biggest players. Jim Farley, Ford Motor Co.'s global marketing chief, said Wednesday that seasonally adjusted retail sales demand had held steady for four months. Meanwhile, the country's used-car market has come "roaring back" since January, he said. "That shows me that credit is available," Farley said after a Ford presentation at the Chicago Auto Show.

Toyota Motor Corp. raised the U.S. target for its Scion vehicles as 2004 sales of the brand intended for younger buyers approached the company's initial goal for next year. The Japanese automaker, which sold 79,422 Scions through October, may reach the high 90,000s this year, brand manager Jim Farley said. Toyota expanded Scion nationally in February after the brand debuted in California last year, with a target of 100,000 sales in 2005. That goal has been increased to 125,000.
