DETROIT — Sales fell at General Motors, Toyota and Volkswagen in September, an odd month that appears likely to snap a 27-month streak of gains for the U.S. auto industry.
GM posted an 11 percent decline compared with a year ago as the company even reported falling sales of its redesigned full-size pickups. Pickup sales have been a strong point for the industry as small businesses return to dealer showrooms. Volkswagen sales were off 12 percent, while Toyota sales were down 4 percent.
Ford sales were up 6 percent, while sales at Chrysler rose 1 percent.
