GM 3Q Global Sales Drop 11%, Trail Toyota

NEW YORK – General Motors says its third-quarter worldwide sales fell 11 percent on weak U.S. demand, falling short of Toyota's total for the period.

Detroit-based General Motors Corp. said Wednesday it sold a total of 2.11 million vehicles in the third quarter, while Toyota's sales fell 4 percent to 2.24 million. Japan-based Toyota Motor Corp. also blamed a continued drop in U.S. demand for its decline.

For the first nine months of the year, GM sales fell 5.8 percent to 6.66 million vehicles.
