Typical Toyota, reporting only the adjusted sales to make it look better. If there were less selling days this year then they would report unadjusted sales. Most others report both

Yeah, they forgot BEST EVAR sales decline! <_<

Okay, I couldn't resist...

Only 2 best EVARS

A random thought. Are we going to see people (with lots of disposable income) buying big suv's just to make a statement? "I can afford to spend lots of money on gas so I'm buying a big suv to show the world" Not counting those who actually NEED a large vehicle for hauling lots of people, like large families, of course.
