Top 10 Best-Selling Cars Last Month
Car shoppers were out in storm last month, buying new vehicles by the bucketful.
While all automakers generally did well, Hyundai (up 32%), Ford (up 28.2%) and Nissan (up 26.9%) did exceptionally well.
Ford outsold all four brands at GM to become the best-selling automaker in the United States in March.
Ford has three vehicles in the top 10 for March, the most of any automaker. Toyota was the only major automaker with losses compared with March 2010 (down 9.2%).
Pickup trucks usually top the list, but the Honda Accord managed to wrestle the #2 spot from the Chevrolet Silverado, a perennial favorite.
The Camry, typically the best-selling midsize sedan, fell behind both the Accord and the Nissan Altima in March.
