LORDSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -- The Ohio-built Chevrolet Cruze was the top selling small car in the United States for the month of September.
General Motors says it sold 25,787 Cruzes last month. They're built in GM's Lordstown plant near Youngstown.
The Cruze's nearest competitor in the sector was the Toyota Corolla, with 23,036 sold last month.
Sales of the Cruze dropped by 188 from the sales record set in August. Still, GM says last month was its best overall September since 2008.
The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer ( http://bit.ly/T0Mzcd ) reports that Cruze numbers last month were helped by profit-free sales to rental car fleets.
