    FIAT US launched Alfa Romeo based Car (2015 Chrysler 200) receives floods of order. 10000 orders 1st day (8th May), 8000 orders 2nd day (9th May)::OO...
    This car competes with Camry/Accord/Fusion/Altima/Passat/Audi A4....

    Till date, they have received so many orders that Sterling Heights plant's schedule is occupied till July.
    I think, FCA will now easily surpass Toyota and become 3rd biggest auto-maker after GM & Ford in US.
    Ford will also feel the heat because Chrysler was lagging around 30000 vehicles/month. Chrysler 200 is narrowing that gap fast!!

    Intresting parts on global number :
    Global vehicle production can be counted in several different ways. By cars built alone, Volkswagen actually is the number one manufacturer, Toyota is second and GM is number four. However, including light vehicles such as SUVs and pickups, Toyota is first, GM moves up to second and VW drops to third.

    Don't know about the world but US Toyota's biggest pillar in US is Camry & Corolla, If Toyota slips now, they will be out of US market :p.
    The most reliable manufacturer but still with 6.5 million recalls... Doing unethical things (hiding flawed engineering which cost many people their lives for Toyota Prius). They were recently fined 1.2 billion dollars by US govt.

    Toyota is too strong buddy - Check their April 2014 sales figure ( 1.2 billion will not affect them - Toyota's recent balance sheet showed 60 billion cash reserve !!!)

    USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - April 2014 YTD - GOOD CAR BAD CAR

    And one more thing is , recall does not affect brand value or even does not make brand bad in 2011 Toyota recalled 2.2 million vehicles - there sale rose by 42% !!! i still have that link ( Toyota )

    everybody recalls ;

    Merc did it many times

    Mercedes-Benz Recall Information - Autoblog

    Ford also

    Ford Recall Information - Autoblog

    GM has same story too ...

    The most memorable encounter i had with toyota was one Innova i drove for few hundred KM - you can never call it a drivers car ( boring to drive ) But here comes shocker - it had 4,50,000 KM on ODO and you can't imagine i could never guess it , engine was still in awesome state !!!!
