For some, May 2013 was a month for the record books. Others are glad to see the fifth month of 2013 slip away. Overall, Detroit enjoyed a solid May with all three major automakers (Ford, Chrysler Group, and General Motors) seeing a bump in sales when compared to the same month last year. Lincoln and Volvo experienced losses though and Jeep also fell behind, making it the second of two brands (the other being the Chrysler nameplate) in Chrysler Group to be in the red last month. In all, five standalone brands suffered losses in May, with every other brand reporting gains.
