Carmakers' Sales Strong




DETROIT -- Chrysler Corp., Toyota Motor Corp., Honda Motor Co. and other automakers reported record sales for October, leaving analysts impressed with the ongoing strength in the nation's auto market.


Chrysler said Tuesday that sales grew 20 percent and hinted strong demand will continue as it completes its merger with Germany's Daimler-Benz AG.


Separately, Japan's Toyota and Honda, and Germany's BMW AG, each said they had record Octobers. Another German automaker, Volkswagen AG, said its sales in the United States last month were the strongest since 1985, thanks to its new Beetle and Passat cars.
