Light truck sales were led by the all-new Tundra full-size pickup with best-ever September sales of 19,571, an increase 61.4 percent over the year-ago month.

IT'S NOT THE SAME TRUCK!

looks like the 'chosen elite's' pocketbooks are starting to get hit too.

Odyssey is really socking it to the sienna.

RAV4, CRV, the cute ute segment is exploding.

toyota sucks. i hope this is a double digit decline next month.

look how many of their models are down. Fine by me.

All of Toyota's sales in North America are being kept afloat by the Camry, Tundra, Pruis and ES? Even the RX is down 6% and the Enclave hasn't even fully hit it's stride yet.

Best EVAR! for Scion too. Look at that... the xD sold 300 less than the xA it replaced. The entire division is down.... a LOT. If this were a domestic brand there'd be editorials demanding it's closure faster than you could say "Mercury"

Avalon sucks algae yet again.

Avalon < ES350 < Lucerne

6066 < 6491 < 8505

And even giving Lucerne a 22% fleet draw, its still 6634 units compared to the Lexotas.

Months ago people were gloating that the Yaris was "the right car for the right time" and "an example of Toyota thinking ahead". As if it was pulled out of thin air?

It is just a restlyed Echo, it still has the crap center gauges! The drop shows that buyers are comparing B class cars and seeing the nee Echo as not worht the "Toyota premium price".

It still amazes me that they manage to sell 30K Crapolla's a month! They must be selling at least 50% of those to fleet. I've driven a lot of rental cars and the only ones I hated getting more than the Crapolla were the Sunfire and just about any Kia. The Sunfire is long dead and even the Kia's are probably better than the Crapolla now.

Probably related to that Motor Trend review where they said it has grown big and ungainly.

Yaris = Echo = Tercel

My partner had a 96 Tercel. Horrible little car. No wonder they keep changing the name......

Great job toy-Ota, keep up the good work! <_<

Nor should it. Toyotas marketing people really missed the boat on that one.

Wow, Yaris is down.

I haven't so much as sat in one, but I've only heard that they're pretty cheap all around. Good if you want to get great mileage on the manual shift one though.
