And it appears toyota's incentives are no longer pulling customers in as sales have fallen for toyota while increasing for GM and Ford. And Ford appears poised to challenge Toyota in hybrids having hired 220 workers to make hybrid components.

We are seeing first hand the real Toyota. They can no longer bring the defective cars in and perform “minor surgery” during a maintenance visit. I tried and tried to tell these pro Toyota posters they were driving just regular old bland little cars.

And if Ford came out with a hybrid that got better mileage than the prius, it would really hammer toyota......

I’m no Edmunds fan but it is important to note Ford’s Fusion hybrid just beat out the Priapus for Consumers’ top rated vehicles list. Toyota is losing its reign of the hybrid market too. I predicted this months ago.

In other news, Consumer Reports believes the ability to steer is not critical, and therefore will not be removing Lexus from its, "Trust us, buy it" list.

Have they resumed the sale of these flagship Lexus premium rides yet?

(checking)

Uh huh

Uh huh
Hmm

(Verdict)

NO these defective POS premium cars have jacked up defective Japanese parts.
Parts won’t be in until a few more weeks.
So NO these top of the line premium flagship hot smelly POS Lexus cars are not for sale.

Lexus has just regained top spot in the US luxury market from Benz. You can mock and critisize TOYOTA all you like but the people have spoken. By the way where is CADILAC or MERCURY in the sales race so as you said OH WHAT A FEELING TOYOTA still the world's number 1 manufacturer.
