  1. I think Toyota still sells very reliable cars. Toyota-performance in europe is a weak point at the moment, but worldwide Toyota is – number one. πŸ˜‰

    And the new models being introduced into the european market (new Yaris, Auris) seem to be quite successful. RAV4 is coming, let’s see what happens. Matt will tell us soon … πŸ˜‰
