The Mercury Grand Marquis was #2 in January and #4 in February before being discontinued, the Suzuki Kizashi was #9 in March and the Suzuki SX4 #2 in April.

Dodge Nitro

In December, the Toyota Corolla tops the models ranking for the first time in 2011, the Ford Crown Victoria is up to an amazing 2nd place, the Dodge Nitro up to a fantastic 7th spot (vs. #52 in Full Year), the Nissan Sunny is up to #11 and the VW Tiguan up to #20.
