I have no idea how the company would respond as I have never had any
need to contact them. We have three currentish cars in the house
right now and none have ever had to go back to the dealer for anything
that wasn't handled promptly and properly. Sorry to hear that your
Toyota dealership isn't able to take car of your cars for you without
you having to escalate the issue to corporate.
True. I hardly ever see a broken down newish Toyota on the side of
the road. 'Course I hardly ever see any newish car of any brand name
on the side of the road anymore. I spend a great deal of my day
driving between calls and don't see more than one or two broken down
cars a week of any vintage.
If you've had good luck with Toyotas keep buying them! I agree that
they make an excellent product. For my personal taste they are bit
No, I didn't say I had a problem that had to be taken to corporate. I'm
saying that if your friend had a serious problem, then he/she should go up
through the chain-of-command, so to speak.
I had a terrible time with COURTESY COLLISION PRO in Orlando, but Courtesy
Toyota/Scion service department was fine. Go figure - same company.
I ended up getting my car's body repaired by Rick Hendrick Toyota here in
North Carolina. They rawk, if any of you are in this area. I highly
recommend them! I go there for everything, since neither me or my hubby are
mechanically inclined. :-)
Guess I've lived in places that have more traffic, because I see at least
one domestic car with the hood up either going to or from work. Could be
that here in the Bible Belt more people drive US, I don't know.
I don't really put much stock in looks (I drive an Echo :-)), but the Camry
is boring, even for me. However, I'd like to go back to domestic, so I'm
rooting for them to rebound.
Some years ago, I suddenly - like a bolt of lightning out of the blue -
came to the conclusion that there was one primary criteria for
eliminating a given vehicle from my long list: Whether the hood is held
open by a prop rod or a nitrogen cylinder. That seems to be a very
good leading indicator of the attitude with which the vehicle was
designed and marketed.

Couldnt resist, so I went out and checked the odometers of three Chevy
Cavaliers my kids and/or their spouces own. The three vechicles total
a little over 570000 miles combined, two of them are over 200000
miles. They run them to death almost every day. All three have
original engines and transmissions. I guess these cars qualify as
being "low-end". Chevy must have done something right with these
veheicles, as they sold a whole bunch of them.
Now wait-a=minute. I dont understand something here. I thought the
reason people stopped buying American cars was becasue they did NOT
have the looks of German or Japanese cars. Your saying the reason
people dont buy American cars is that they look TOO much like foreign.
Seems something is wrong, somewhere.
