Used Vehicle Sales in Japan

Used vehicle sales in Japan rose for the first time in six months in May thanks to demand in northeastern areas hit by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, industry data showed Friday.

Sales rose 0.3 pct from a year before to 289,464 units, still the second lowest level since the survey began in 1978 due to limited supply of new vehicles, the Japan Automobile Dealers Association said.
