Automakers are expected to report their best month of 2010 when final December sales are reported Tuesday. Nissan (NSANY.PK) sales are forecast to surge 25%-plus Y/Y, with double-digit jumps at GM and Chrysler, and small gains at Ford (F) and Honda (HMC). Sales at Toyota (TM) should slip 12%. Despite overall gains, it's the second-worst year for car sales since 1982.
