DETROIT - Black Friday deals and the long Thanksgiving weekend lured buyers into U.S. automobile showrooms, and analysts say the surge should boost November sales above a strong month last year.
Analysts estimate that last month's car and truck sales rose from 3.6 per cent to as high as 6.3 per cent over November of 2012, which at the time was the best month in nearly five years. All automakers report monthly sales figures on Tuesday.
Some analysts couched their estimates, however, saying they were counting on a strong finish to the month on Black Friday and Saturday.
