It seems everything Ford touches these days is a disaster. Mazda is the only piece of Ford (they only own 33.4% of Mazda) that is doing well. More bad news for its Volvo brand. Volvo Cars of North America, LLC, reports sales in the United States of 7,819 units for January, representing a 12 percent decrease compared to the same period last year. Overall, Volvo sales for North America (United States, including Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico) were 8,628 units, which is 11 percent down compared to the beginning of 2006. Volvo Canada sales were down 4.5 percent, with 571 units sold, while Volvo sales in Mexico were ahead of last year by 15.5 percent, selling 238 units.
