TOKYO (AP) -- Global vehicle production by Toyota Motor Corp. and Nissan Motor Co. declined in September due to a prolonged slump in the U.S. auto market amid growing recession fears, according to data released Monday

Toyota, Japan's top auto maker, produced 789,224 vehicles in the month, down 1.3 percent from a year earlier. It marked the second consecutive month of year-on-year declines.

"Demand in the U.S. market remains stagnant. We are seeing a fall in demand for trucks there:lmao:," said Toyota spokesman Paul Nolasco. He added sluggish demand in Japan also pressured Toyota's global output.

Earlier, Toyota said its global sales in the July-September quarter fell for the first time in seven years due to faltering demand in the United States. The company sold 2.24 million vehicles worldwide during the quarter, down 4 percent from the same period last year. It marked the first year-on-year decline in the July-September period since 2001.
