DETROIT — U.S. auto sales slowed slightly in June but still maintained a healthy pace despite a record-setting string of safety recalls at General Motors and a slowdown in truck sales at Ford.

Car buying site TrueCar.com expected U.S. sales to rise 1 percent over last June to 1.4 million cars and trucks. That was lower than May, when buyers flush with tax returns drove sales up 11 percent to 1.6 million.
