Default Sales figures?

Anyone have a good source for sales numbers? GM Media and I do not get along well, so if anyone has something it would be greatly appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It's crazy to see the Honda and Toyota sales for one month, and a crappy month at that, is more than all the Saturn sales for the year so far.

Then again it explains why these import brands hold re-sale better and are stolen more often.

You know it is pretty sad when the Olds Alero, a great car but discontinued, outsells the L-series and the Maxima outsells even the Grand Am.

Wow, that's a nice site! Thanks for the link.
It is rather scary how the domestic market compares to the imports though.

I was looking at those numbers in more detail. It turns out that the ION has already outsold the '02 S-series. The ION's also outselling the Sentra, Protege, Lancer, and Echo, as well as every Kia and Hyundai except for the Elantra. Go little Saturn, go!
If Saturn and GM don't let the ION fall behind the competition they will have a real long-term sales winner on their hands.

I was a bit surprised by this. I mean, I knew that the ION sales were pretty good around here. Of course, nothing competes with the Civic, but the ION is doing very well for a car with such poor reviews. YTD isn't half bad, and I think that sales have gone up quite a bit in May. I started seeing more than twice as many IONs on the road in the last month.

Anyone else notice that the ION's YTD is 1,000 units higher than the Jetta?

I'm a bit surprised that the Malibu is selling so well. Though, they aren't bad cars, really. Their looks are kinda growing on me, too.

Cadavalier's are still selling well, for a car that's had horrible crash test ratings, and is really dated. I guess that the brand still sells well. Maybe they shouldn't rename it "Cobalt."

One thing should be noticed. GM's product line is *huge* compared to Honda or Toyota, so really, their sales don't seem quite as high when you factor in all of the GM products that are on this list.
