Credits success to 'core' brands sales

After announcing it will recall 1.3 million cars in North America over a potentially faulty power steering motor, GM announced an 11.5% increase in February U.S. sales.

The automaker -- which is shedding Saab, Hummer, Saturn and Pontiac amid a broad post-bankruptcy restructuring -- attributed its gains to a solid lineup at its four remaining "core" brands.

Sales at Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac rose 32.2% in February to 138,849 while total sales rose to 141,951 vehicles in February from 127,296 a year earlier.

"Although we've been operating as a new company with four brands for just seven months, our February results demonstrate that our long-term plan is already paying dividends," said Susan Docherty, GM vice president for sales, service and marketing.
