GM Sales Up, Despite Recalls

gm(CNN) — Despite millions of recalls, General Motors reported its best June sales since 2007 today. GM sales rose about 1-percent compared to a year earlier.

The Buick brand led the way with an 18-percent increase in deliveries, thanks to sales of the new Encore small SUV.

General Motors has come under criticism following its delayed recall for an ignition switch flaw that resulted in 13 deaths and numerous injuries.

Overall, the automaker has recalled nearly 30 million vehicles to deal with a variety of safety issues.
