GM posts a minor gain in September 2012 as Cadillac, GMC stumble

General Motors was one of the weakest auto companies in the US market in September 2012 with a year over year growth of just 1.5% but that slight increase allowed them to beat cross-town rival Ford Motor Company en route to once again being the bestselling automaker in the US by a pretty comfortable margin.

General Motors had their best September since 2008 last month with 210,245 units sold which was more than enough for GM to be the bestselling auto group in the US market – beating Ford by more than 35,000 vehicles sold.

“Passenger cars have been the launch point for a broad and deep GM product offensive,” said Kurt McNeil, vice president of U.S. sales operations. “Auto sales will continue to be a bright spot for the U.S. economy, which is particularly good news for GM as we walk into an even stronger cadence of new products in 2013 and 2014.”
