Throughout the day, the big automakers will release their US auto sales stats.

And so far, the numbers are looking a little light.

Sales from Fiat Chrysler, Nissan, Ford, and General Motors have each missed expectations so far. 

The biggest miss was from Ford, which saw sales unexpectedly fell 2.0%, much worse than expectations for a 5.8% jump.

Fiat Chrysler's US auto sales increased by just 5.6% in February, missing analysts' expectations for 8.9%.

General Motors sales also missed expectations, rising 4.2% against estimates for a 5.9% sales increase, while Nissan's sales rose 2.7% against expectations for a 3.8% increase.

Analysts estimate that the pace of US auto sales improved to an annualized rate of 16.7 million units in February from 16.56 million in January.

From Morgan Stanley's Ted Wieseman: "Mid-month industry surveys have pointed to a slight pickup in sales in February after the dip in January to a 16.6 million unit annual rate following the best two combined months in December (16.8) and November (17.1) in nine years. Much colder weather in the second half of February was probably a drag."
