From MarketWatch: Ford U.S. August sales rise 17%

Ford Motor Co. said Tuesday that total U.S. sales in August rose 17% to 182,149 vehicles from 155,690 last year.
From MarketWatch: Volkswagen U.S. August sales rise 11.4%

From MarketWatch: Daimler U.S. August sales fall 10.5%

Update: MarketWatch: Chrysler U.S. August sales decline 15%

Toyota, GM and more to come.

Once all the reports are released, I'll post a graph of the estimated total August sales (SAAR: seasonally adjusted annual rate). The range of estimates for August have been very wide because of the Clunker program - from a low of 13 million SAAR to a high of about 16 million SAAR.
