Interesting... the article I just read said Toyota had a decrease this month.<p>"Toyota sales, which include the Toyota, Lexus and Scion brands, dropped 4.4 percent to 210,457 last month from 219,965 in April 2006, the company said Tuesday. It was the first year-over-year monthly decline for Toyota since May of 2005."

There were 24 selling days, vs. 26 last year.<p>Bottom line, just about every automaker was down for April in the US.
