    Look mom, no fleet sales!

    “We out-retailed both Ford and GM by nearly 40,000 units,”according to Don Esmond, head of automotive operations at TMS USA. “Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. sold more vehicles to retail customers than any other automaker.”

    “Esmond said he expects Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. to finish the year with a sales increase of about 10 percent – the same as he projected for the entire industry. Through March, the company’s sales were up 7 percent.”


    A huge part of both Ford and GM's sales increase this month was fleet sales instead of actual retail customers.

    Ford's fleet sales increased 53%. GM's fleet sales increased 64% (including discontinued brands). Hyundai/Kia has been doing the same thing as well to pad their numbers each month.

    Also, GM and Ford (along with Chrysler) spent the most on incentives to move their vehicles.

    GM spent an average of $3,519 per vehicle (including discontinued brands), Ford spent $3,304 (including Volvo) and Chrysler spent $3,509.

    So much for all those recalls then.

    Whole recall debacle was a media cluster fuck.

    Greater chance of getting raped with a piece of celery than having a toyota gas pedal stick. People didn't stop buying celery either.

    If they made something that wasn't a boring appliance, I might consider owning a Toyota.

    Our customers that have always owned Toyotas didn't give a shit about the recalls, lol.

    One guy said he would have still bought a Tundra over a GM truck if the Tundras had a 50% chance of exploding for no reason.

    I'm a fan of Toyota. Not all of my family's vehicles were Toyotas, but all the ones that never gave us problems were Toyotas.

    But there's no chance in hell I'd buy a Toyota if one out of every two would blow up. :ugh: That's just blind fanaticism.

    You'll probably see more new Fords, Hyundais and Kias parked in rental lots than on the road. That's where a large amount of them are going. :mamoru:
