Chrysler, Ford sales up
Date posted: April 2, 2013
DETROIT (AP) — March was the best sales month for Ford and Chrysler in nearly six years, as buyers armed with tax refund checks were lured by flashy new vehicles and low interest rates.
Ford’s sales were up 6 percent and Chrysler’s rose 5 percent compared with last March. It was the best month for Ford since May 2007 and the best for Chrysler since December 2007, the same month the Great Recession began.
General Motors said sales rose 6 percent last month, while Toyota sales inched up 1 percent.
