 Comment by J.B. Fitzpatrick, vice president, GM Communications and Marketing Staff:
 GM's sales performance in March continued the upward trend in vehicle sales during the first quarter of 1992, with total deliveries in March outpacing each of the previous two months. In particular, we are pleased with the enthusiastic consumer reception for GM's many all-new 1992 passenger cars and trucks.
 Based on continuing strong retail performance, we expect GM car sales in the first quarter to outperform the overall industry sales increase. Saturn continues to make noteworthy improvements in sales, and to contribute to our expected gain in passenger car market share.
 Overall, the nation's economic outlook continues to improve as key indicators post solid gains. From our perspective, these latest improvements point toward a strengthening in consumer spending, which we expect will lead to a stronger pickup in new vehicle sales. GM dealers are reporting increasing orders and improved traffic in their showrooms in many parts of the country.
