SLOVAKS registered 40,517 new personal cars and small trucks weighing less than 3.5 tonnes between January and July 2005, an increase of 8 percent over the same period last year. According to the Car Industry Association of Slovakia, sales should start to stabilize. As much as 50 percent of Slovakia's car market is untapped because of most people's low purchasing power.
