The reason has nothing to do with the unintended acceleration - it's just that, it seems like they don't even try anymore. The quality is dubious, the technology is middle of the road, and the designs have been uninspired and boring for a long long time. Anyone else agree?
I still don't buy the accelerator thing. I think that was a take down of Toytota to help save GM and Ford. But I am with you on uninspired designs. They're doing too well to commit to something out there. Old companies that get too caught up in maintaining their position always get boring and play safe. That's why so many horrendous boring movies come out now too. Nobody wants to take a risk so they keep making stuff that looks like something that did okay in the past. Yawn.
Can't say as I agree. The first mainstream hybrid manufacturer, and the only one to date to design it from the ground up. A tremendous lead here that they will probably keep for some time.
Currently market testing a plug in hybrid, and working on at least one more hybrid. No, I wouldn't say they are in the back of the pack on technology.
Styling is quite another matter though.
Two words: Toyota Hilux.
Until someone can break one of these, I will remain a "Toyota Man." Great vehicle.
GM gets bailed out so Americans now hate GM. Toyota kills 54 Americans, and some people still support it.

That's the conclusion of the Feds after having NASA plus other "experts" look into the Toyota sudden acceleration problem. Sticky accelerator linkage also -- not electrical (electronic).I am...

What would you fix if you had the money? Personally, I'd opt for a facelift and a nose job. What about you?
