Despite the global financial crisis affecting the sales of new vehicles in Australia for the last few months of 2008, Australians still bought more than one-million new vehicles in a single calendar year for the second year in a row and only the second time ever.

According to Official VFACTS data released by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI), a total of 1,012,164 passenger cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles were sold in 2008 - down 3.6% or 37,818 vehicles compared to 2007.
