And he's right. GM's Bob Lutz confirmed this week in comments to reporters at the Geneva Motor Show what everyone has been thinking for a long time - that one of the domestic automakers probably won't make it in this, the most competitive market in automobile history. Lutz believes that GM is positioned to survive, but the implication is clear that either Ford or Chrysler may not make it - and Chrysler's more than halfway there already. February Auto Sales: Ford and Chrysler Slump, While GM Posts a 3.7 Percent Gain Date posted: 03-02-2007 DETROIT — General Motors appears to be coming out of its sales funk, posting a 3.7 percent gain in U.S. sales for February, as sales of Ford's domestic brands fell 14 percent and Chrysler Group sales dropped 8 percent. General Motors was the strongest Motor City performer, riding high on demand for its new full-size SUVs and pickup trucks. The GMC truck brand posted a 24 percent jump in sales. But GM was not consistent in sales gains across the board. Buick, for example, slumped 30 percent. Saturn, however, soared 59 percent. Chrysler Group's sales were pulled down by the slow-selling 300 sedan, Pacifica and PT Cruiser. Ford took a pounding on its F-Series pickup sales, which declined 12 percent. What this means to you: GM appears to be shaking off the sales doldrums, while Ford and Chrysler are still struggling.
