DETROIT (AP) - Chrysler says its U.S. sales rose 1 percent in September on strong performances from the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickup.
Chrysler says it sold 143,000 cars and trucks last month. September was the company's 42nd-straight month of sales gains.
Analysts predict that overall industry sales dropped about 4 percent last month because the Labor Day weekend was counted with August sales. That pulled some sales from September into August.
All major automakers are scheduled to report September sales numbers on Tuesday.
