The industry is filled with both good and bad news in terms of February auto sales as reported by the various auto makers and auto companies. The Chrysler group was one among the piles of auto makers to experience a decline in sales last month. The previous third biggest seller was noted with to have a decline of 8% compared to last year’s February. But the biggest loser among the Big Three was the cash-craving Ford Motors Company which declined 13.5% plus a 30% loss on its to rental car sales. Looks like no matter how faultless the Ford parts and Ford products are, people tend to choose other brands. Well, maybe because of the various issues and situations surrounding the company at present.

Even if two among its subsidiaries, namely Buick and Hummer, fell by 29.5% and 26% respectively, the biggest auto Seller General Motors still managed to improve its sales by 3.4%. Saturn gives GM the biggest increase this February. With more than the combined sales of Buick and Hummer, Saturn increased by an impressive 59.4%, thanks to the strong sales of the new Aura and VUE.

Talking about increase on sales, of course Toyota will not be found below. Toyota was able to make 12.2% more sales than last February. Should we wonder? Well, not me.

GM sold the biggest 311,763 units retaining itself at the top followed by Ford in second with 211,150 units sold. Toyota’s total sales ended up to 187,330 units passing the previous car brand on the third spot the Chrysler Group with noted 174,506 sales.
