    The engine blew after I'd owned it three months. Things went downhill from there.

    Any vehicle that can't last six years without blowing an engine under normal use is a piece of crap.

    As for my Ford? It was a GEM. My current Chevy? AWESOME.

    Of course, this is all anecdotal, and may not mean a thing to others, but it's good enough for me to avoid Toyotas, just on general principal. The fact that the company made up a big, fat, bull**** story about floor mats being the problem just gives me one more reason to think poorly of both the company and its products.

    So much for Pete's implication that American drivers were at fault.

    Very entertaining video, Alvin. What they did to that truck is exactly what I would have liked to do with my POS Crapola.

    But my Toyota was never abused, nor did it have that many miles on it, and it died anyway. How can you explain that?

    He must have thought they use different gas pedals for Europeans. I hear they do have some special model for Spain for people with two left feet.

    I already posted that sometime ago and Pete conceded that the post had just come out. Old Manc is a day late and a $ short.

    You missed what they did next. They put it on a 15 story apartment building.
    Then dropped the building underneath it.

    It still drove.

    As for yours? No idea.
