Car Sales Strong Despite Recalls

Car Sales Strong Despite Recalls

Even though millions of cars have been recalled, it's not affecting new car sales. 

KTRH Car Pro Jerry Reynolds says most major car sellers just finished a strong month of July.

“Recalls just aren't seeming to have any effect,” Reynolds says.  “General Motors just reported their sales for July and they are up, again, a whopping nine percent.  That's huge.”

Ford was also up, by 10 percent.  There was also at least one surprise loser.

“One surprise was Honda,” he explains, “down four percent from a year ago, which doesn't make any sense.  There's a car company which has had no recalls.”

Reynolds says the availability of low-interest loans, and rebates, which make cars more affordable, are driving sales much higher.
