Land Transport New Zealand's latest vehicle statistics found that Kiwis were changing their buying habits as fuel prices stay high. First, new and used car registrations were down last month. Second, of the cars sold in New Zealand in the first half of this year, 40 percent were small car models, up from 30 percent a year earlier. Third, motorbike sales were up for the 27th month in a row. The New Zealand Motor Trade Association said the decline in car sales was due in part to higher than average sales last year and early this year. A weaker New Zealand dollar was also a reason, sources in the article say.
