Despite Wall Street's expectations to the contrary, General Motors experienced a February sales decrease of 2.5-percent-- analysts were hoping for a 1.3-percent uptick. Retail sales (as distinct from fleet transactions) did increase 1-percent, largely on the strength of the General's new GMT900 SUVs, which are "exceeding all of the important targets," according to the automaker.

As an aggregate, truck sales for GM were up 5-percent on the month, while cars were down 11-percent.
