DETROIT (AP) — America's top-selling car is in danger of losing its title.

Toyota's Camry has been No. 1 for more than a decade, but the company is being forced to cut prices to keep it there.

Camry sales fell 2 percent from January through June. Meanwhile its main rivals in the midsize car market — the Honda Accord, Nissan Altima and Ford Fusion — posted big gains.

The hot-selling Accord cut the Camry's lead to just below 21,000 at the end of June. At the same time last year the gap was 59,000.

Toyota is lowering prices to boost Camry sales.

In early July, the Camry's average sales price was the lowest of the nine top-selling midsize cars, according to data from J.D. Power and Associates obtained by The Associated Press.
