If they could get some style on them, they might do better. Unfortunately, the company is in a downward spiral and it’s in shambles.

I would not say the company is in shambles. The company is in a very bad position right now with all the stupid decisions they made and all of the quality defects. They CAN fix that but I am starting to think they won’t. Everyday I read more an more bad things about Toyota and it may be getting past the point of no return for them.

I love the style of my Toyota Yaris. It is the design boxy design of vehicles like the Scion xB and the Toyota Tundra that I hate. I think Toyota made a big mistake building large over priced gas guzzling vehicles. Toyota is building too many vehicles that are too much alike. Building vehicles that are just a few inches longer for each model is a bad idea. The jump in size between the Toyota Yaris and the Toyota Corolla is too small.

As the Mini Cooper has proved, people are willing to pay the true production cost of well designed small vehicles.

I don’t like the box shape cars and trucks either.

Mini Cooper has proved that little cars arent always the best mileage cars

Most coopers only get 18-20 MPG's in reality
They truly are a complete and utter J O K E!!!

What a dolt! The Mini Cooper isn't supposed to get best mileage. Its a high performance car designed to go fast, accellerate quickly, and handle like a sports car. Using its mileage to complain about foreign cars is stupid.
If you look at the normal Mini you will find they get very good mileage.

What have you ever done for your country except to embarass it and make a fool of yourself shooting off dumb brain farts about how he's gonna fix the world.

Grenada was a joke! There were no heros ther stupid. It was a big put-on as a photo op. to boost US military presence in the Caribbean. First of all, you saved no one who needed to be saved, and second of all, you had to scour the place to find something to shoot at. And everybody got a medal in that cluster f-ck.
Mostly you shot up a bunch of trees and a few buildings, then you all sat down and had a big beer blast.
It wasn't a real war dumbo, so you don't rate any atta boys for a fiasco like that.
No brag material there stupid.
So what else you got?
More BS maybe?
You got NOTHING!!

In the past Toyota copied various American cars...
however, recently they have started to have some originality.

We need to find out why oriental Toyota decided to sacrifice the consumer in the name of profit. That’s the question we need to attack.
