    I think at the moment it has nothing to do with VW selling more it is just Toyota sales are shrinking faster. A big factor is in the USA which is just about Toyota's biggest market (& a much smaller one for VM's brands) we are looking at about 7 million units taken out of the market, where as in Europe where VW's brands are stronger and Toyota is smaller countries are doing the cash for junkers type programs to encourage sales.

    I bet Toyota in its wildest dreams never expected being #1 to be such a bad or such lived experience.
