TABLE-Japan overall auto sales down 2.5 pct in July

Aug 1 (Reuters) - Japan's industry-wide auto sales,
including 660cc minivehicles,  fell 2.5 percent in July from a
year earlier to 460,260 vehicles, industry data showed on
Friday.
    Automakers saw a recovery in demand for registered vehicles,
whose sales had been dented since April after a consumption tax
hike. But sales of minivehicles suffered after companies met
most of the back-orders that had been left over from a rush of
pretax hike buying.
    A breakdown of domestic vehicle sales data follows, with
year-on-year percentage changes in parentheses.
