AURORA, ONT.—Magna International Inc. reported its third-quarter profit grew compared with a year ago as revenue also climbed higher, but the auto parts maker trimmed the outlook for the year.

However, Magna lowered its expectations for 2018 light vehicle production in North America to 17 million units, compared with its earlier forecast of 17.2 million.
In its outlook, the company now expects total sales between $40.3 billion and $41.4 billion this year, down from between $40.3 million and $42.5 billion.
Magna also lowered its profit expectations for 2018 to between $2.3 billion and $2.4 billion, compared with its earlier forecast of between $2.3 billion and $2.5 billion.
