Isle vehicle sales fell 21% in 2009

Advertiser Staff

Hawaii car and truck sales fell 21.4 percent last year, the fourth consecutive annual decline, the Hawaii Automobile Dealers Association reported today.

Sales are expected to begin rising again this year, but industry participants disagree on the strength of the rebound.
The consensus of HADA dealers is for a 3 percent gain in sales in 2010, while Auto Outlook, a Pennsylvania-based industry publication is forecasting a 9.7 percent gain in Hawaii vehicle sales this year.
