TOYOTA MOTOR SALES +0%
The hangover from Toyota's recall nightmare at the beginning of the year has proven to be a long one, and it has bolstered the fortunes of Hyundai, Nissan, and possibly Ford as well. The Toyota brand fell behind Chevrolet to third place, and Toyota Motor Sales similarly lost its number 2 position to Ford Motor Company. Toyota needs to do something to break out of its funk in 2011.
4Runner +138%, thank you, redesign!
FJ Cruiser +25%, but the volume is tiny
Sienna, Tundra +18%
Land Cruiser -20%,
