The National Automobile Dealers Association is forecasting a record for 2016 at 17.7 million new light vehicles will be purchased or leased, which is two percent more than last year. It is something President Obama is even celebrating, announcing Saturday that later this month he will visit the auto show.

Workers at General Motors in Lordstown are excited about the show as they get ready to start production of the next-generation Chevy Cruze.

“To have the exciting new Chevy Cruze as our car and being able to secure it, not only for our members but their families’ financial stability for the foreseeable future, it really makes it nice to have a place to come back to work,’ said Glen Johnson, president UAW Local 1112.
