Wow, Lexus got pwned!

Tundra is going to barely crack 120,000 at this rate, weren't they shooting for 200,00?

They praise the Corolla, yet it's YTD sales are down 9.5%.....

For all the noise Toyota is making about the Pruis, down 39% in a month where gas prices have jumped nearly 50cents is amazing. 2.2% YTD increase is nothing special.

Camry is doing well, but Malibu must be taking sales. Total 'Bu sales are up 34% and retail 'Bu sales are up over 100%.

Yaris doing very very well, but I'm surprised by tC numbers.

What is with the "memo" just below the division totals that appears to total certain models by the domestic market? Is that retail sales or just seperating U.S. sales from rest of world? It actually shows a 1.3% drop in Crapolla sales an "all-new, best-evar!" model recently introduced and despite $4/gallon gas. :scratchchin:

Those figures are of North American built vehicles.

Hmmm... with 21.3% drop in car sales (17.4% drop ytd), maybe Lexus can "win me over" with the Deal on a discounted luxury Toyota ES or GS... :scratchchin: ... uhm... yeah... uhm... no... :rotflmao:

TC is a dated design and not a well designed car. I own and drive a first gen xB, and we looked at a TC for the wife. TC is NOT an impressive car by any standard, IMHO.

Yaris is doing well but other small subcompacts are much better cars.

It looks like Tacoma and Tundra sales are a wash, although I can't believe all the fools still buying the Tacoma with all the bad press....wait a minute :duh: , what am I thinking? What bad press?

Still, Canadians are following each other off a cliff: Toyota's sales up 15.5% for the month.

Yaris gets fleeted majorly.

Prius sales may be down because supply is down. I had to do just about everything short of lewd sexual acts to get ours.

Depends on the dealer. Some local dealers have been sold out for months, but the Librarian at the Library I use drives one he just bought. He says that they had 12 on the lot, including a couple of 07's.

Funny Prius sales down, way down. Looks like Toyota took a good month on the $h!ter. So much for being "green" still falling back on SUV sales as always. Along with a mixture of has-been ugly a$$ cars. Looks like they took a nice $h! not as big as GM's. I keep seeing more Prius's each day it is starting to yank my chain.

Is Toyota having problems with production or something?

Demand has been way up, at least at all the local dealers. They cant keep them on lots. Camry hybrids are a little more attainable, we saw a few, test drove one. Civic Hybrids are plentiful, oddly enough.
