Ford Motor Co. says its U.S. sales plummeted 32% in December as buyers continued to steer clear of showrooms due to economic uncertainty.

Ford's sales for the full year dropped 21%, making it likely that the Dearborn, Mich., company will trail Toyota Motor Corp. and remain the No. 3 U.S. auto seller for the second straight year.

Toyota and other automakers report December and full-year sales later Monday.

Ford says it sold 138,458 light vehicles last month, down from 204,787 vehicles in December 2007.

For the entire year, Ford sold about 2 million vehicles, more than half a million fewer than in 2007.
