U.S. auto sales increase for each major brand except Toyota

Ford increased United States auto sales more than any automaker in 2010 and passed Toyota to take No. 2 in sales behind General Motors. Every automaker increased United States sales except Toyota, which saw a decline in numbers. While automakers such as Ford and GM loved a 2010 resurgence, Toyota was burdened by a plague of recalls that tarnished its once-spotless image. If the recalls continue with Toyota the automaker might just need payday loans to stay afloat. Resource for this article - U.S. auto sales increase for every major brand except Toyota by Personal Money Store.

United States auto sales being looked at

U.S. auto sales rose 11 % in 2010 over 2009 and each and every major automaker except Toyota reported a sales boost. When the bailout for automakers happened Ford was the only one within the U.S. who didn’t take the bailout money. This is how the business led automakers in a 19 percent increase this year. Another accomplishment Ford had was sales increases 2 yrs in a row. This hadn’t happened since 1993 like this. There were 10.4 million cars sold in 2009 and 11.6 million units in 2010 throughout the industry which is the largest bump since 2984. It is also the first recorded increase that has happened since 2005. Highlights included hefty sales gains for GM's Chevrolet Cruze, Ford's Fiesta and Chrysler's Jeep.

Toyota not succeeding like Ford

In 2010, Ford passed Toyota to become number 2 in auto sales in the U.S. having sold 1.97 million units when Toyota only sold 1.76 million. For the year, Toyota’s sales went down 0.4 percent. Something called the “unintended acceleration” is why Toyota had to recall over 8 million cars and trucks in the world in 2010. There were also eight models within the U.S. that had production stopped by the Japanese automaker. The popular Camry and Corolla were both ones that this happened to. Existing models that had flaws were what Toyota worked on all year. New models were sent out by General Motors, Ford, Nissan and Hyundai though.

Recovering auto industry

There has been really great performance shown in the auto industry within the United States Numerous say that the auto industry is recovering rather well. The proliferation of new models and higher quality standards also has them declaring that Toyota's days as the dominant automaker within the U.S. and the world may be gone for good. In 2010, it became obvious that car buyers in the United States all just want the same thing. New, well-made products are on the top of that list.
