Helped by new models and falling gas prices that sparked truck sales, General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. sprang back last month from dismal year-earlier sales, but Chrysler posted a small retreat.

GM bolstered claims that its recovery is on track, reporting a 16.8 percent sales gain even though it was the only major automaker to scale back on incentives last month.


"GM did have a great month, there's no denying it, but they're still down 9 percent for the year to date," said Rebecca Lindland, analyst at forecasting firm Global Insight.
