May Ford Sales Highest Since 2008
Tuesday, June 02, 2009

DETROIT - Ford Motor Co. said Tuesday its U.S. sales fell 24 percent in May
from a year ago, but sales rose 20 percent from April as the automaker
continues to gain market share from its competitors now under bankruptcy
protection.

Dearborn-based Ford said it sold 161,197 cars and light trucks in the U.S.
last month, the highest figure since July 2008. Sales of the Ford Fusion
rose 9.4 percent as the company began selling new 2010 models of the midsize
sedan along with a hybrid version. Ford said it sold a record number
Fusions, 19,786 in May, which was surpassed only by sales of its F-series
pickup trucks.

Ford says its better cars are driving sales and its increasing market share,
not GM and Chrysler's filings for bankruptcy protection. The company said it
plans to increase production levels in the second quarter by 10,000
vehicles, to 445,000, in contrast to its U.S. competitors that are cutting
production and idling plants this summer.

Ford also said it plans to build 460,000 vehicles in the third quarter,
42,000 more than in the third quarter of 2008.

Automakers are facing the worst U.S. sales climate in 27 years. The
companies and analysts are expecting are a rebound as the consumer
confidence improves, but there's concern that heavy incentives to are
inflating sales.

Ford said it decreased incentive spending in May but is launching a new
program, "Drive the Ford Difference," this month, in which the company will
pay three months of car payments, up to $2,100. Zero-percent financing will
also be available on some vehicles.

I'm just saying, with all the GM vehicles I see on the road (and all the GM trucks parked at CSM this year) it seems like a very popular brand. I'm optimistic that GM will eventually crawl out of this deal and be OK.

I'm just not buying any GM stock right now... :rolleyes:
