IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today reported December 2009 sales of 18,255, up 1.6 percent versus December 2008, and the strongest single month of the last four.

"Going in, we knew 2009 was going to be an extremely difficult year, and it lived up to its early billing all the way to the end," said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. "We reduced our fleet sales all year long to focus on long-term brand strength, residual values and profitability.

truthfully, the Mazda6 IS NOT pulling its weight.

esp when you consider the Altima Camry and Accord are all lame.

the crossovers are keeping the doors open for Mazda.

And of course, the MAzda3.
