Fiat Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai and Subaru posted higher U.S. sales in May while Ford and other Japanese brands fell as the industry battled to end a four-month losing streak, Automotive News reports.

FCA rode a huge gain for Ram and strong fleet sales to its first increase since January. Toyota ended a six-month skid with a 3.2 percent advance, while Subaru capped its 90th straight monthly rise with an exclamation point: up 6.4 percent. American Honda, Mazda and Mitsubishi all posted declines.
