Several automakers have posted sales numbers for December 2008, and compared to December 2007 the numbers are staggering!  Chrysler -53%, Toyota -37%, Ford -32%, and VW -14%!

When you look at 2008 as a whole, all but Subaru posted a decline in sales. While Subaru was down almost 8% in December, they posted a gain of 0.3% for the year, compared to GM -23%, Ford -21% and Volkswagen -3.2%! This is good news to the relatively small Subaru (total sales of 187,700 units), and even though they forecast flat numbers for 2009, they have to be encouraged when other car makers are projecting declines of 15-20%.
