(WHAS11) -December wasn't kind to Ford dealers across the nation.

Sales for the auto-maker tumbled 32%.

Ford sales for all of 2008 fell 21% from 2007 figures, yet the auto giant is in third place when it comes to losses.

Sales for Toyota fell 37%, while sales for Honda were down 35%.

It's not as bad as analysts expected.

They predicted auto sales across the board to drop up to 40% in December as consumers remain uncertain about the economy and their jobs.
