DETROIT (WKZO) -- General Motors’s overall U.S. sales in August increased by 15-percent over the same period last year.  Retail sales were up 22-percent while fleet sales dropped eight-percent.

"The second half of 2013 is off to a very solid start for GM and our model-year change over," says GM Vice President Kurt McNeil, "and new product launches are going smoothly."

GM August sales were the highest of 2013 and the best since September 2008 when the global financial crisis began to accelerate.
