TOYOTA IS KING!!! WAY TO GO GUYS! THOSE ARE AWESOME NUMBERS!

As we all know, there are lots of ways toi move numbers and catagories around to make the figures look better, or worse for that matter, than they actually are. 203,223 vehicles for the month is a pretty staggering number. Enjoy your recalls Mercedes.

Reference this report that states Toyota up, but Lexus in a small decline. I grabbed this from CBS Marketwatch(Dow Jones):

Toyota Motor March U.S. sales up 12.3% (TM) By Shawn Langlois
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Toyota Motor (TM) on Friday reported a 12.3% increase in March U.S. sales to a record 203,223 vehicles.
