New-car sales in North Texas' four largest counties were barely down in
June compared with a year earlier, but they remain up modestly for the year.
In Tarrant County, new-vehicle registrations were down 2 percent in June and up 5 percent through the year's first six months, according to Freeman Publishers in Dallas.
That compares with a decline of 0.25 percent, to 29,369, for Tarrant, Dallas, Denton and Collin counties combined, which are up 8 percent for the year.
New-vehicle sales in June were off 2 percent in Collin County and 7 percent in Dallas County. In marked contrast, registrations were up 61 percent in Denton County, but Freeman said that is more likely due to record-keeping than dealer sales.
Year-to-date sales were up 14 percent in Collin County, 16 percent in Denton County and 7 percent in Dallas County.
