    You never will know the happiness of a Ford SVT vehicle. Absolutely awesome!

    The Ford I bought to replace the Toyota that died on the LA's I-10 ran like a champ for 10 years. Never had one thing go wrong.

    When I moved to the country, my much loved Ford couldn't quite handle all the hauling I do, nor take the rutted gravel roads and dangerous winter weather, so I traded it in for a nice used '99 Silverado Z71. It's been driven hard the last five years, and again, it's been an absolutely perfect vehicle.

    Now that we're seeing increasingly worrisome (not to mention deadly) problems with manyToyota models, my negative feelings about Toyota - both the product and the company - have only solidified.

    The story about floor mats smelled like so much crap to me when I first heard it years ago, and that stench hasn't dissipated in the slightest.
    What model and year Toyota was it?

    One bad car doesn't make a reputation though. I've had tons of Toyotas without issues. But it happens.

    Sure does. Happened to me. Soured me on them forever.

    The scrambling for excuses that Toyota has been doing since 2007 just solidifies my bad feelings about them.

    Of course, YMMV.

    One vehicle does not make a trend. I wonder what J.D. Power says about reliability...

    Toyota, 5 stars, along with Buick, Mercury and Jaguar. Not bad at all.

    Well of course Government Motors is going to bully it's competition to the fullest extent of it's ability; scaring away competition is the trade mark of fascism.
