Finland Top 4 Brands : 2000-09

VW Golf a top seller in Finland...

From  the year 2000 when 134,600 cars were sold, to a peak of 148,200 in 2005 to the economic slump that took sales down to 89,100 in 2009. That was all in one decade! The only note to make was that camper vans were excluded in the last figure, not that it made much difference. It would have been 90,600 if included. Toyota took top spot all of the time, with VW shadowing them but at some distance back. Ford was solid and Skoda's started making a comeback by 2009.
