Because until the end of 2011, PT Toyota Astra Motor (TAM) is still hoping to touch sales of 310,000 units. Although many disorders, the national automotive market continues to rise.

TAM marketing director Joko Trisanyoto say, a chain effect of natural disasters in Japan and Thailand reduced the volume of sales from April to June and November.

TAM so could not meet market share targets that have been determined earlier this year, a minimum of 36 percent and only 35.4 percent holding. "The problem is not we can not sell, but do not have the goods. It is unfortunate, but good-good market again," complained Joko.
