GM, Ford see sales climb

Posted:
DETROIT (KWWL) -

Two of Detroit's biggest automakers are reporting growth in sales.  General Motors says its sales climbed about one percent last month, led by small cars.

Ford's sales jumped 14 percent in February, thanks to big demand for its Focus compact car.  Focus sales more than doubled over last February to 23,350.  It was the best February for the small vehicle in 12 years.

Both automakers expect small car sales to continue climbing as gas prices spike.  Analysts are forecasting a 3-percent rise in U.S. sales this month, and expect small cars to drive the growth.
