January was a trying month for some of the auto industry’s largest leaders, as extreme cold and weather essentially paralyzed great swaths of the country. There were a couple of standouts, as there so often are, but overall, the intense weather was doing no favors for what is ordinarily one of the year’s slowest months to begin with.
