US November Auto Sales Surge to 4.5-Year High

America's appetite for new cars and trucks surged to a new high in November as auto sales ran at their fastest pace since early 2008. "Business is great!" says Tammy Darvish, vice president of DARCARS Automotive Group, which owns 34 auto dealerships in the Washington, D.C. area. "People are buying again, there's a steady flow of customers. It's different from a few years ago."

In 2009, as the recession dropped America's economy to its lowest point, auto sales collapsed to 10.4 million for the year. Since then the auto industry has gradually recovered.

'09 10.4 Million
'10 11.5 Million
'11 12.8 Million
'12 14.5 Million (estimate)

This year sales are on pace to total 14.5 million vehicles, with November posting the highest monthly sales rate of the year at 15.0 or 15.1 million vehicles.
