General Motors April US sales up 6.9 per cent as recalls have little impact
DETROIT - General Motors says its April U.S. sales rose 6.9 per cent as a string of embarrassing recalls had little impact.
The Detroit automaker says it sold just over 254,000 cars and trucks for the month, led by the Buick brand with a 12 per cent increase.
GM's results show that auto sales are rebounding after being depressed earlier in the year by harsh winter weather. Crosstown rival Chrysler also reported a big increase at 14 per cent.
GM was led by the Buick Encore small SUV with sales up 48 per cent from a year ago. Sales of the Chevrolet Silverado pickup, GM's top-selling vehicle, rose 8.5 per cent to nearly 43,000.
Since February GM has announced recalls of about 7 million vehicles including 2.6 million small cars for a deadly ignition switch defect.
