NOTE: Since there were 27 selling days in June 2007 versus 26 in June 2006, the percentages below represent the change in Daily Average Sales rate for each automaker and not the change in raw number of units sold.

The biggest news coming out of the sales reports for June 2007 is the -24% pummeling taken by General Motors and its brands. Only Saab sold more on average per day than it did in 2006, with every other GM brand, including the recently risign Saturn, dropping by double-digits. There are a number of factors for this, but we suspect that General Motors actually reduced the supply of cars to rental fleets this month instead of just giving the practice lip service. If that's the case, then GM's black eye in June is not bad news so much as a required readjustment in how its cars are sold.

Elsewhere, the Japanese 3 of Toyota, Honda and Nissan were all up, with Nissan North America posting an 18.2% improvement in its Daily Average Sales rate last month thanks to the new Altima and G-Sedan, among others.

We're sure you're wondering about Ford Motor Company. It continued its steady decline in sales, although Lincoln was a major bright spot, posting a 25.2% gain thanks to the MKX and MKZ. Chrysler, meanwhile, was again buoyed by Jeep, which rose about 15% last month and offset slower sales at Chrysler and Dodge.

The rest of the numbers for June 2007 have been compiled for you below. Enjoy.
