* Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac Increased Sales Year-Over-Year
* Full-Size Utilities and All-New Crossovers Post Significant Gains
* 2008 Malibu Orders Outpace Available Supply
* All-New CTS Drives 20 Percent Cadillac Sales Increase


DETROIT - GM dealers in the United States delivered 310,008 vehicles in October, 8,700 more vehicles when compared with year-ago performance, outpacing an industry expected to show a volume decline of about 4 percent.

For the third consecutive month, on an unadjusted basis, total sales increased, with October up 3 percent. When adjusted for selling days, sales declined 1 percent. It is anticipated that GM will see its fourth consecutive month with market share above 24 percent. Since August, market share is up more than 1 point, to 25.1 percent, compared with the same three month period last year.

The month's 229,294 retail deliveries demonstrated solid performance despite continuing industry softness. GM retail sales were led by brisk retail sales of full-size utilities, mid-utility crossovers, the Cadillac CTS, and the Chevrolet Aveo, Cobalt and HHR. The Saturn division showed yet another retail sales increase, up 7 percent.

"Our strong market share performance and our ability to outpace industry trends on volume demonstrates the consumer acceptance of our new products," said Mark LaNeve, GM North America vice president, Vehicle Sales, Service and Marketing. "Over the past two years, our new products including the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Cadillac CTS, full-size utilities, and mid-crossovers have all gained retail share following launch. Our committed dealer team has really stepped up to the plate, pushing all of GM's brands above the industry average in the recently released J.D. Power Customer Satisfaction Index."

Cadillac CTS total sales surged 75 percent, compared with year-ago performance, due to the strength of the all-new CTS, now in showrooms. GMC Acadia, Saturn OUTLOOK and Buick Enclave together had total sales of more than 12,800 vehicles, pushing a more than 320-percent increase in GM's mid-crossover segment. Additionally, Cadillac's SRX luxury crossover saw a total sales increase of 37 percent. Total sales of the fuel-efficient Chevrolet Cobalt and Pontiac G5 were up 81 percent, Chevrolet Aveo was up 58 percent and HHR was up 70 percent compared with last October.

Vehicles with retail sales increases, compared with year-ago levels, include: Chevrolet Aveo, Cobalt, Tahoe, Suburban, and HHR; Saturn ION; GMC Yukon and Yukon XL; Cadillac CTS and SRX; Pontiac G5, Grand Prix and Vibe.

"Cadillac CTS and Buick Enclave have two of the fastest turn rates in the industry," LaNeve added. "And while it is still very early, Malibu demand and customer feedback has been sensational. It's products like these that have enabled us to buck recent industry trends."

Quality, reliability and durability (QRD) remain key factors when purchasing a new vehicle. An increasing number of consumers cite GM's willingness to stand behind its quality as a reason to buy a new GM vehicle. GM's 5 Year/100,000 Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty continues to be a better choice for customers.

GM's coverage focuses on the complete ownership experience and includes other provisions that competitors do not offer, including transferability to the next owner, more complete coverage of parts, and coverage for new and certified used vehicles. In addition, GM offers superior complementary programs, such as courtesy transportation and roadside assistance. "GM provides the best coverage in the industry. We take care of the vehicle and the owner like no other manufacturer," LaNeve added.

the '09's are going to make a real impressive jump.... know that they know the enclave is a huge hit they will have those '09's waiting in the wings. it will in no way be as difficult to get an '09 as it is the '08. i've been waiting forever so, ifigure a little longer wait for the '09 wont hurt a bit.

Buick actually sold more Enclaves in October 2007, than they sold Rainier, Rendezvous, and Terraza combined last October (2006)..

Enclave Oct 2007 4244
Rainier/Rendezvous/Terraza combined Oct 2006 4241

Not too shabby, with one vehicle replacing three.

Isn't that what buick had in mind when they revamped their line-up? Build quality vehicles that people want to drive. I never felt that rendevouz fit that bill.

I don't see how. The '09s will be coming off the same line as the '08s. GM is reducing capacity by eliminating the 3rd shift. It appears that they don't think they can sustain the current pace and are adjusting production to match anticipated demand. I can't see them stockpiling '09s or greatly increasing capacity so that the market is flooded. I expect it will easier to get an '08 this winter than it has been this past summer. Demand for the '09s could easily out pace the supply and getting one could be as difficult as the '08s were this summer.

Read the post from the wall street journal. GM wants to keep production tight and demand high so they don't have a surplus and don't have to give out huge rebates and incentives.
