Toyota - sayanora ?

I am starting to think Toyota could need a bail out before this is all over.

They knew about this since 07 and tried to blame it on floor mats

I smell lots of lawsuits

I will be shopping for a car this year, and this really makes me think twice about Toyota.

I haven't heard the actual number of incidents/accidents/deaths associated with this defect, but it seems like it's been handled very poorly.

I love my 2 Hondas: a 2002 CR-V, a 2008 Civic Hybrid. The only recall on my old Pilot (now returned off lease) was the tire fill stem caps!

Honda rules. I wish I drove one.

(I had a car once, those days are long gone, though. 135,000 miles does that.)

My family owns three recalled Camries, one of which we purchased two weeks ago.

i love my 2 Chevy's, no problems here.

Maybe GM can absorb some of Toyota's lost sales....either way Toyota's "Quality" mantle is sure taking a big hit.

The most boring cars on earth. No offense to anyone who drives one.

That sounds like a model: The Toyota Sayanora.

no offense, but i would never admit to that. Easily the worst automotive design in the last 30 years.

no offense, but i don't care. they're a great ride and you save an amazing amount on gas.

i also don't care that much about cars, period. nice cars are nice, i suppose, but getting excited of them seems pointless. all they do is pollute and make people fat(ter).

i love toyota and nissan. both will pretty much take everything you throw at them and keep on going.

my parents daihatsu, on the other hand, is a scary piece of shit. i wouldn't want to be in it in a minor accident.
