Toyota Truck Not Doing So Well

Looks like Toyota much toted truck the Tundra isn't really doing as well as they say it is ....

Toyota Motor Corp. says some of its dealers are offering as much as a $1,500 discount on the basic work truck version of Toyota's newly redesigned Tundra, just barely one month after it went on sale, the Wall Street Journal reported. The discount is a one-month nationwide program on the Texas-built truck that began this month and is described by Toyota as "another tool," to spur sales.(emphasis min)

Another tool to spur sales? Gee when the American Auto Industry offers incentives Toyota says they are doing it because they can't sell cars and have cars that nobody wants to buy. Now that the shoe is on their foot it's a "tool".

Never liked them, anyway. And I think there's still a LOT of people who buy trucks (certainly in NC) that are going to buy Ford or Chevy and nothing else. Ever.
