As a Scion owner I find this Ironic. They sold 130,000 Scions after claiming that they were going to "Scale back" and only sell 150,000 a year.

Too bad Toyota won't admit the new xB and the new xD are duds.

Also too bad that many people are passing up the Malibu and Fusion for a Camry.

yup, and the Tc is long in the tooth, plus the whole 'tuner' craze / sport compact fast and furious thing is so not hip anymore. "Scion". yeah.

Camry, which posted annual sales of 473,108, an increase of 5.2 percent. Corolla posted year-end sales

of 371,390.

these are two human tragedies. these two cars don't even deserve to sell half that. I hope the Accord / Malibu and new Mazda6 eat into this tragedy. And Corolla, as big a tragedy. I bet GM would love to gobble up half that volume of those two cars alone.

Tundra didn't meet it's 200K sales goal, even with huge rebates.
