The numbers show Arbogast Buick Pontiac GMC Truck sold a total of 1,254 vehicles so far in 2019, up 3.6 percent from the 1,210 vehicles sold at the same point last year.
Jeff Schmidt Auto Group showed 1,099 vehicles sold so far this year, up 16.8 percent from the 941 sold at the same point last year.
A new dealership, Lebanon Ford Inc., reported 983 vehicles sold as of the end of April 2019.
Nationally, sales of new- vehicles fell in April as total sales were down 1.7 percent year over year. The SAAR or “seasonally adjusted annual rate” came in at 16.4 million vehicles sold nationally, down from March’s 17.4 million and last year’s 17.2 million, Cox Automotive reported.
“Robust employment conditions and a strong stock market didn’t seem to be enough to lift sales last month,” Charlie Chesbrough, senior economist, Cox Automotive, said last week. “Market forecasters have been expecting the market to slow as higher vehicle prices and higher borrowing costs squeeze many potential buyers. And indeed, the sales lion that surprised many in March became a much weaker lamb in April.”
