US Domestic Vehicle Sales Disappoint In January, Drop For 2nd Month

All day mainstream media has been crowing about Auto sales being mind-blowing... record-breaking... colossal... so we have a simple question... when Ward's released its US Domestic Auto Sales (SAAR) data this afternoon... why did it miss expectations and show a 2nd monthly drop in a row? January printed 13.31 million cars SAAR, missing expectations of 13.5 million and dropping from December's 13.46 million SAAR.
