Over­all indus­try sales totaled 1,153,682 in July, com­pared to 1,059,601 a year ago.

That trans­lated into a sea­son­ally adjusted annu­al­ized sell­ing rate of just under 14.1 mil­lion units, ver­sus 12.4 mil­lion units in July 2011. And [Jes­sica] Cald­well [Edmunds] said that was good news for all carmakers.
