We can assume you are not a math major, right? LOL
Total 2005 US sales approximately 16,600,000
GM 26% 4,316,000
Ford 18% 2,988,000
Chrysler 13% 2,158,000

and Scion sold cars and light trucks combined
Mike Hunt does this sort of thing frequently. Not long ago he did post
the source for "information" about Hyundai automotive's financials, only
he got it completely wrong and referenced the Hyundai company which does
shipping and natural resources.
He has a habit of only seeing what he wants to see and can be safely
Once again you are not correct, I did not post Hyundai as a source for
anything. I do not post sources frequently or ever, do you own home work.
At most I may suggest one search a specific site, like the Congressional
Record, the NHTSA or Automotive News but never a link. Do you own search
and you will find the exact information I found as the basis for what I
this is true, I majored in engineering. And I meant to say "third" not
In Jan '06 and for model YTD '06 Toyota is outselling Chrysler/Jeep.
Ford is just barely ahead. Also if you look at
you will see that that is unlikely to change. It would be funny if it
weren't so sad. It is especially sad that the foreign subsidiaries of
Ford and GM make so much better products than we get here in their home
So why don't you include Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, and Mazda in with Ford?
This moves the Ford group up to around 18.5% of the US market. Seems only
fair since the Toyota group includes vehicle built in various locations,
including some built under contract and by partially owned subsidiaries.
Ditto for GM and DiamlerChryler. Seems unfair to tout Toyota's success while
ignoring the fact that the "big three" are really worldwide companies that
build and sell cars around the world.
1) those vehicles are not designed in the US for the most part
2) the first set of stats that I found were broken down by brand and
solely concerned the US market, which is what we were discussing
3) they are, for the most part, significantly better than the
US-designed and branded vehicles from those companies, which was part
of the point that I was trying to make :)
