DETROIT (AP) — General Motors' record number of safety recalls isn't keeping the company's sales from rising. The company said Tuesday that its U.S. sales were up by one percent in June, led by the Buick Encore small SUV.
GM has recalled nearly 29 million vehicles so far this year as it reviews years of safety problems.
Chrysler had its strongest June since 2007. Sales jumped nine percent amid strong demand for the new Jeep Cherokee SUV. Chrysler's best-seller, the Ram pickup, was up 12 percent over last June.
Toyota and Nissan also saw increases over last June, while sales at Ford and Volkswagen were down.
