Automakers poised for sales rebound?

The Associated Press
IN BRIEF

DETROIT – Nearly every major automaker saw U.S. sales drop in
August, but many saw signs that the worst slump in recent history may
have bottomed out.

Most upbeat were executives from General Motors Corp., which posted
a 20.3 percent sales decline from a year ago but a 31 percent
improvement over July’s dismal totals.

Chrysler LLC said its U.S. sales fell more than 34 percent in
August. Ford Motor Co. reported a 26.5 percent decline. Toyota Motor
Corp.’s sales dipped 9.4 percent, and Honda Motor Co. saw a 7.3 percent
slide.

Nissan Motor Co. saw August sales climb 13.6 percent from a year ago.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
