Revenue declined by 2% year-over-year to $37 billion, reflecting the faltering demand and unfavorable exchange rates. The top-line, meanwhile, exceeded expectations.

Meanwhile, it lowered the full-year adjusted EBIT guidance to between $6.5 billion and $7.0 billion, to reflect the increase in warranty costs, higher than planned incentives in North America, and lower volumes in China.
