MADISON (WRN) - Sales of new cars and light trucks kept going down last month in Wisconsin – but industry analysts expect higher numbers for November. Just over 12,400 new vehicles registered in the Badger State in October. That was down 9 percent from September, and 47 percent from August – when “Cash for Clunkers” gave federal stimulus money to folks who agreed to trade their old junkers for more fuel-efficient vehicles. The October sales were 19.5 percent below the same month a year ago. But Jim Tolkan of the Automobile Dealers Association of Mega Milwaukee still sees good times ahead. The industry expects a 10 percent increase in new vehicle sales nationally in 2010, after recession breaks and more people go back to work. For now, Tolkan says buyers can take advantage of new incentives, and holiday sales which have started earlier than normal.
