U.S. car sales slip again in June

Car sales down another 3.5% in June

The U.S. car market in 2017 is on track for around a 2.0% reduction in overall new car sales in 2017.

Sales data for June has just been released and the market dipped a full 3.0% compared to the same month last year.

In total, U.S. car buyers purchased 1,469,494 new vehicles in the month.

Some of the winners in the month included:
