U.S. auto sales for Q1 are expected to come in at four-year highs after the U.S. economy improved and financing terms eased up a bit. A survey of analysts sees March sales of 14.75M vehicles - below February's mark of 15.1M but still 10.9% higher than sales from a year ago. Industry watchers say automakers have hit the "sweet spot" with lowered incentives and double-digit sales increases pointing to improved profits.
