Paul Tay­lor, chief econ­o­mist for the National Auto­mo­bile Deal­ers Asso­ci­a­tion, said dealer sales are increas­ing and, for the first time in three years, deal­ers aren’t rely­ing on their ser­vice depart­ments to put them in the black.

Urban Sci­ence said the U.S. deal­er­ship net­work is poised to reach record-breaking aver­age num­ber of sales per deal­er­ship and prof­itabil­ity lev­els by the end of the year.

… the aver­age num­ber of sales per deal­er­ship will rise to 805 vehi­cles annu­ally, because there are fewer deal­ers and sales are up industry-wide this year, to a pro­jected 14.3 mil­lion cars and light trucks. The pre­vi­ous record is 784 per dealer.
