Even though millions of cars have been recalled, it's not affecting new car sales.
KTRH Car Pro Jerry Reynolds says most major car sellers just finished a strong month of July.
“Recalls just aren't seeming to have any effect,” Reynolds says. “General Motors just reported their sales for July and they are up, again, a whopping nine percent. That's huge.”
Ford was also up, by 10 percent. There was also at least one surprise loser.
“One surprise was Honda,” he explains, “down four percent from a year ago, which doesn't make any sense. There's a car company which has had no recalls.”
Reynolds says the availability of low-interest loans, and rebates, which make cars more affordable, are driving sales much higher.
