After two months of slowing growth, same-store dealer sales grew more than 8 percent in June.

Overall sales were up 8.1 percent year-over-year for the month, following 1 percent growth in May and 2.8 percent growth in April.

Unit sales grew 5 percent for the month, second only to March’s 6.8 percent increase for the year.

Parts department revenue rebounded in June, up 6.1 percent year-over-year after dropping 3.1 percent in May. That May decline was the first in parts revenue in more than a year.

Service department revenue was also up, but only by 1.8 percent, it’s worst figure since a 13.5 percent decline in January.
