General Motors Reclaims Title Of World's Top-Selling Automaker
DETROIT -- General Motors sold just over 9 million cars and trucks worldwide last year to reclaim the title of the world's top-selling automaker.

The company says it sold 9.03 million vehicles last year, up 7.6 percent from 2010.
The title doesn't mean much to GM's bottom line. But it's an example of how far the company has come since it nearly collapsed in financial ruin in 2009.
