I for one have no problems with Toyota's. Over the last few years I have
owned a number of them. Every one bought for less then $500, and every one
needing a major Repair of some sort.
Looking at Toyota's realistically. After so many years items start to
wear. Owners who do not do proper preventitive mantianace and keep driving
them with issues, lead them them needing a major repair. Toyota's, just like
ANY car or truck have problems in the under 50K mile range. This is why the
auto makers have warantees, and dealership service departments to handle
I have know Toyota owners who have had bad experiances. I have known
many more who have had good experiances.
Yet just like with GM products, alot of the good vs the bad comes down
to the dealership. A good dealer will work hard to solve an issue, and make
sure the custom is happy. A bad dealer doesn't care either way, as long as
they get their sare from the service departments billing of the warantee.
Since 1967 my family has bought new GM vehicals (my father, my mother,
my self) over 30 new vehicals in total. A few had problems that would not
go away. One or two just were bad designs that you didn't notice untill you
drove them for a while.
The only New GM purchase I think we have been less then satisfied with
was the previous buick century. Which had 2 intermitiant issues that were
never repaired. When that car was totaled in an accident I bought a used one
of the same year, make, model, and color. I have not been 100% pleased with
If I could afford to purchase a band new car, and had my chiose between
a brand new Toyota or Lexus, vs. a Brand New Pontiac or Buick, I would buy a
KJ.....I wish you could spend a week at our dealership and
actually "see" where all the parts for "Chevy" trucks are made.
Let's put it this way, they aren't feeding "Americans". It's probably
time for you to get used to something called "global economy"....as
it is a large part of what's going on with the domestic manufacturers.
