Toyota's quarterly profit jumped 39 percent over year-ago figures, with the automaker earning $3.6 billion on sales of $51.6 billion in the first quarter of 2006.

Sales were up 18 percent over the same period, and the automaker sold more cars everywhere except in its stagnating home market of Japan.
