    DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

     

    General Motors Co.'s (GM:$24.29,00$0.27,001... U.S. auto sales fell 6.1% in January as the auto maker reported lower truck and crossover sales, though Chevrolet strength helped boost passenger car sales.

     

    The results beat expectations from car-shopping website Edmunds.com, which had projected GM sales to slip 8.9% on the year and slip 30% from the prior month. Broadly, Edmunds projects U.S. new auto sales to rise 5.8% in January from a year earlier and to slide 30% from December's total.

    If all divisions are down y/y, how are they ready to report 70% increase in profits? I see trouble on the horizon with accounting issues or other reporting trickery.
