Automotive companies have become a political football in recent years with government dollars and incentives lending support to one of the largest contributors to U.S. manufacturing. In the articles below, you will find automotive news coverage with a focus on new car sales, autoworkers' union contract negotiations, expansion into overseas markets and overall trends in the automotive industry.

Additionally, you'll find consumer-focused coverage of auto companies -- including bestselling- and top-rated cars, car and truck recalls and interviews with CEOs -- which, in time, may impact the price of auto shares and the perception of the automotive industry as a whole.
