SACRAMENTO — The California New Car Dealers Association (CNCDA) reported that California’s franchised new-car dealers sold 1.29 million new cars and trucks in 2011 — a 9.9 percent improvement over 2010. 

The Honda Civic was California’s best-selling new car for 2011 and the Honda CVR was the light truck leader, the association reported. California new-car and -truck sales are expected to increase an additional 8.5 percent this year.

“California’s economy is on the mend and consumers feel confident again about buying a new car,” said John McCallan, CNCDA chairman.
