'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Sales of new Toyotas in the Pittsburgh area grew 49.2 percent in the most recent two months, compared to a year ago, and ramped up significantly more than the 39.2 percent growth nationwide.

A total of 2,363 new Toyotas were registered in the region in September and October, compared to 1,584 a year ago, the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Association said.

Other local changes: Honda, up 18.5 percent; Volkswagen, up 12.8 percent; Nissan, down 11.6 percent; and Ford, down 8.1 percent. Chevrolet's leading market share slipped to 13.6 percent year-to-date from 14.7 percent at this time in 2011.
