Untitled DocumentAll the talk is about the rivalry between the Big 3 and Toyota. Dig a little deeper and it’s not Toyota thats number one, nor General Motors that comes in last. These numbers come from J.D. Powers Power Information Network (PIN) and are Year-To-Date as of September 30, 2007.

Just like in “The Biggest Loser” we dont just watch the actual sales numbers, but the percentage of sales year over year. Which auto manufacturers are gaining ground, which are losing big time?
