Sales appeared to be strong in January even though deals weren't as good as last year. The auto industry spent 8 percent less on discounts last month than it did a year earlier, according to the TrueCar.com auto pricing site. Of all major automakers, only Hyundai and Volkswagen raised incentives from what they spent in January of 2012, TrueCar said.But that could change later in the year as automakers are expected to compete for sales with new vehicles and better deals.
