10 cars saving the auto industry
General Motors and other automakers are seeing sales come back stronger and faster than anticipated. Here's why.

It would have been nice to just have a list of the top ten selling cars, not what they think are the top 10 important cars. The Volt is not a sales leader. The Honda CRV and the trucks are. Just give us the numbers for what people are buying, you know actual cars sold compared to each other?
Still beating the Obama Party drum!
The Volt, really?
Aside from giving them away, special tax incentives (bribes) and municipalities buying them has any real world citizen purchased one?
Ford F series continues to blow the doors off Chevy trucks, has done so for 30+ years.
This article was published once before and carried the same dismal lies from the Obama Admin, trying to pump up his failure in Detroit.
7000 were "SENT TO DEALERS"? But nobody bought them, and the Corvette has a waiting list. If we are now to judge a car's quality and value by how many are forced down a dealer's throat then the Edsel must be the all time best car. And even that is more desireable than a Volt. YuK!
68,000 Ford Mustangs sold in 2011 and these guys list the Chevy Volt? REALLY?
OVER 500,000 Ford F150 sold last year, compared to some 400,000 Silverado's from Chevrolet.
HEY, MSN, DO YOU HAVE an ALTERNATE AGENDA?
Really, to NOT list the Ford Mustang is sheer IDIOCY and beyond IGNORANT lack of research...
The 2005 Ford Mustang was the catalyst for ALL of the "retro" Muscle Cars...Chevrolet's Camero, Dodge Charger and the Challenger...
To leave the Mustang off is either IDIOCY or such a bad attempt at bias that you deserve to have your journalism license (THEY SHOULD HAVE ONE BASED ON THIS PATHETIC ATTEMPT) revoked indefinitely...
I totally agree with alot of the other post's, In my area I see ALOT of Camaro's, Challenger's and Mustang's. No VW's and very few CRV"S. About the only two "top 10" on this I will agree with is the Silverado, 300, and the Toyota.
The recession has something to do with it, but Americans are getting smarter about money and many see their cars have a lot of years left after paying them off. I saved the total for my next car after paying off my last loan.
How can you nimrods possibly explain the "fuzzy" math that leads you to think the Volt is one of the 10 cars "saving" the auto industry???. Taking the sale numbers you state from January to May (at least where noted), here are the facts. Oh, and I did not use the Silverado, who's high number would have even made my point more emphatically.
That left 6 vehicles (the Volt included) with total sales of about 254,000. The Volt, as 1 of the 6, is 17% of the the contributing number. But it is less than 3% of all of the sales. How the heck can that be "saving" the auto industry. You might just as well have said that the Corvette was.
Oh, and throw the Silverado into the mix, and the Volt now is a 1.6% contributor. How much did GM pay you to post this article?
I drive an American built American auto, Lincoln.Ive had various Ford products over the past 15 years with nice quality.I will say this though,the resale value of a Ford isnt what a Honda et al are.Now if you keep your auto 9 years thats not aproblem but if you lease a lower residual means higher monthly payments.Also though I personally wouldnt do it I do understand people who make the argument that yes its Toyota but its built here.The Toyota Camry has 70% domestic parts and a Fusion has @20 % and is made in Mexico.Yes Toyotas profits head back to Japan but they are employing a lot of us.
