From the WSJ: Deep June Car-Sales Slump Seen in J.D. Power Estimate

J.D. Power & Associates sees the market for U.S. light vehicles contracting 15.4% in the month of June compared to a year ago, according to a report released Friday ... The firm expects the closely-watched seasonally adjusted annual rate of sales to fall to 12.5 million vehicle rate, well below the 16.3 million rate set in the same period last year.
This is more grim news for the U.S. auto industry.
