Auto Sales Continue to Crumble

Great info as always from Auto Blog:

The U.S. auto industry hasn't experienced a worse year of sales in recent memory, so it's fitting that 2008 should close with December sales data that's no better than the previous disappointing months.The only green you'll see below is next to MINI, which beat out December 2007 sales by only four vehicles. Every other automaker and its brands sold fewer cars this past month than the year prior.
That's right, the MINI is the only brand up year over year in December, up a whopping 0.1%!

Full year 2008 vs. 2007 figures are slightly less horrendous.

Month over month sales (do not use month over month for anything except relative performance as sales are extremely seasonal) show some high-end brands did "relatively" well. Holiday present perhaps?
