Toyota posts quarterly profit as car sales rise

Posted: Updated:

TOKYO (AP) - Toyota appears to be recovering from both the economic mess and the battering its reputation took over massive safety recalls.

The company reports a quarterly profit of $2.2 billion, reversing the red ink from a year earlier.

Toyota also raised its full year earnings forecast Wednesday.

The world's biggest automaker says revenue for its fiscal first quarter surged 27 percent to $57.3 billion as vehicle sales improved in Japan and overseas including North America and Asia.
