General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. said Monday that their sales in China's booming car market jumped last year, a boost for the automakers that have seen demand slump in the U.S. market. GM said it sold 876,747 vehicles in China last year, up 32 percent from 2005. It said sales of its flagship Buick brand grew by 24.9 percent, to 304,230 vehicles.
