September U.S. auto sales preview

|By:, SA News Editor

Auto sales in the U.S. are expected to post the first year-over-year decline in 28 months, but the industry is far from panicked.

A calendar quirk had the Labor Day weekend included in sales tallies for August and September will have two fewer selling days than a year ago.

Kelley Blue Book projects a seasonal adjusted selling rate of 15.2M units for the month.

What to watch: A far better tell on the direction of U.S. auto sales is the steady stream of reports of vehicle shortages due to hot demand.
