WOW!

Look at the Corolla sales! What gives Toyota?

An all new model, with gas prices rising, the Civic up 18%, and the Corolla is down 21%!

What is Toyota's excuse for that?

Nobody wants another warmed over bar of soap on wheels with a lactating badger in the front seat that will gnaw your face off if your cell phone rings...no matter how many $189/month signs they hang on the ugly step-child of Camry.

PLUS! If you buy one, your girlfriend gets banged by the entire water-polo team. Who wants sloppy sevenths? eww. Plus you have to drive a Corolla.

Interesting, xB sales are up...seems like the second gen xB is starting to find its market niche.

tC sales aren't bad for a 4 year old design.

Overall though I see stiff competition for Toyota ahead.
