New-car sales jump in January

Rochester Business Journal
February 17, 2017

New-car sales in Monroe County were brisk last month, topping year-ago sales by more than 8 percent, Rochester Automobile Dealers’ Association Inc. reported.

Monroe County auto dealers sold 3,265 new cars and trucks last month, up from 3,019 in January 2015, but down more than 20 percent from 4,174 in December. New-car sales saw an uptick locally in the fourth quarter last year, RADA data shows.

RADA does not report used-car sales.

Although nationally new-car sales set a new record in 2016, in Rochester sales leveled off somewhat. Dealers sold 47,665 new vehicles last year, down from 48,629 in 2015.
