Australia 2004: Commodore undisputed leader

The Australian car market is up a healthy 9% this year at 955,229 registrations, and the Holden Commodore is the best selling car in the country again, at 79,170 sales and 8.3% (-9%). It peaked at 9.6% in October and was #1 every single month of the year, establishing a safe margin over the Ford Falcon, #2 at 65,182 sales and 6.8% (-11%) which peaked at 7.7% in March.
