DETROIT (AP) - General Motors Co. says its November sales fell 2 percent from poor sales numbers in the same month last year.

The Detroit automaker says it sold 150,676 light vehicles last month. Rival Chrysler posted a 25 percent drop.

But Ford and Toyota reported steady to higher sales and Hyundai posted a large increase, signs that the U.S. auto market is stabilizing.

GM says it saw growing sales of new models including the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain midsize crossover vehicles and the Buick LaCrosse luxury car.
