I wonder if the issues some have had with the transmission have affected sales of the TLX. They are still good, but.....
I think that the American appetite for SUV/Trucks continue to put a dent into sedan (car) sales. This can be seen by the amount of truck sales (which include SUVs: CR-V, Pilot, RDX, MDX). As the price of gas stays low, this will continue.

As normal, they report the numbers that make them look good. You need to look at what they had to offer last year (no TLX, old RDX, CR-V, Pilot, no HR-V). Looking at month to month trends helps.
