    "After a calm summer period and hints of a recovery in September, the automobile market remains uncertain and irregular," the association said in a statement.

    Sales of new cars came to 169,675 in October, it added. Sales were down two percent in the first 10 months of the year - 2.9 percent on a comparable number of working days - from the January-October period of 2003.

    The association predicted that the end of the year would be "more favourable," citing public interest in new models.
