As the yearly forecast for new car sales in the US is downsized to below 16 million, it is clear that the industry is facing a slowdown.

UK new car sales: 2011 decline forecast as market conditions remain taxing

Last year's modest 1.8% increase in new car sales leaves a lot to be desired given the dismal year that the automotive industry had in 2009.
