JULY SALES: U.S. auto sales rose just 1 percent in July due to worries about the economy and continuing shortages of Japanese vehicles.

WINNERS AND LOSERS: New small cars like the Kia Optima and Chevrolet Cruze saw strong sales. So did fuel-efficient SUVs like the GMC Terrain, Ford Escape and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
