Ford exec says June auto sales could top May levels

DEARBORN, Michigan (Reuters) - June auto sales are on track to at least meet and perhaps exceed May levels, a top Ford Motor Co <F.N> executive told reporters on Tuesday.

May was a weak month for overall U.S. auto sales, which fell 3.7 percent as higher vehicle prices prompted wary consumers to put off purchases. Ford's sales in the month were down 0.1 percent.
