These are bad figures although the spin in the above article implies otherwise.

"There has also been an increase in YTD sales from 23,541 in September of 2005 to 23,584 in September of 2006, a jump of over 8.7%." How do you get 8.7% - an increase of 43 cars is 0.2%

The 59% increase in Touareg sales to a whopping 62 means an increase of around 20 cars in the month. VW sales millions per year so an increase of 20 is hardly something to be really happy about.
I am a VW fan but these and the US September figures are bad for a pretty new line up

hey genius... those 23,541 and 23,584 figures are UNITS... as in number of vehicles.

YTD is measured in % change in $$$.
