COOPERSVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- Automakers are blaming the cold weather for weaker sales numbers last month. Historically, January is already the weakest month of the year for car sales.
The manager at Betten Baker Chevrolet Buick in Coopersville says despite the national sales numbers, the winter weather is one of the reasons their sales have gone up.
"You'd be surprised, we've actually had a lot of customers who got in accidents, whose vehicles got totaled out these last two months. They've came in and gotten new vehicles from us," Mason Maurer explained.
He says used vehicles are selling the best right now and customers looking at SUVs and other durable vehicles for the rough road conditions.
