Auto sales have been one of bright spots in the economic recovery. The seasonally adjusted rate of sales (SAAR) in 2011 was about 10 million new cars sold. All industry analysts expect 2012 to be a better year for car sales than 2011, which in turn was better than 2010 and that year was better than 2009. So you can see the positive upward trend.
