U.S. Auto Sales Show Signs of Recovery in Third Quarter

General Motors Co.’s


GM 2.38%

U.S. sales fell for the third quarter but showed signs of strengthening as the American auto industry continued to recover from the coronavirus-related lockdowns that brought business to a near standstill this spring.

GM said Thursday its third-quarter U.S. sales fell nearly 10% from the prior-year period, but the decrease was narrower than the 34% decline posted in the second quarter, when all its North American factories were temporarily idled
