No, I think the question is what happened to the big 3? Now that they are offering quality cars, people have finally stopped blindly buying into the japmobiles. Thumbs up to GM, Ford, and even Chrysler.

Hey Johnny, Toyota's still #2 in the world, and "The Big Three" are doing so poorly they begged and groveled congress for a $25 billion auto loan. Reality bites eh?

Toyota transmissions aren't "prone" to failure.

This is a troller who posts lies, innuendo, and generally bashes Toyota at every opportunity.

An agenda at work???

Hmmmm.

Hey GFC, who taught the "Big Three" how to build better products???
And why did the "Big Three' wait so long to get the message???
Oh yeah, and what did the "Big Three" say to Edwards Deming" 30 years ago when he tried to convince them of the error of their ways!!
And why is the "Big Three" now the "Little Three" at the bottom of the heap and on life support??
C,mon now Mr. Bigot, let's give credit where it's due.
The Japanese taught us how to do it---and for the moment at least, the "Big Three" are still learning!!
Obviously in your case, the message hasn't sunk in yet.

Youre calling them the 'little 3' again.....
Ford and GM are in the top 5 in the world, and GM is #1 if you like it or not. You are biased and I will stop replying to you. Youre just another pro jap sellout.

Not much of a response there.
Just avoided the questions.

You just lost the debate, friend.

Toyota transmissions are particularly troublesome in trucks. My brother-in-law has gone through six (6) of them in his eight-year-old Toyota Tundra. Fortunately, the dealership has (grudgingly) replaced them. But it is ridiculous to say that there is no issue with Toyota transmissions.

As for the reply, GM was in a hole because they built junk product in the past and spoiled their employees with benefits. The product is surpassing the japs in quality, and the labor situation is improving. Stick to what really matters, THE PRODUCT. The product is surpassing the japs in style and performance. Toyota is in the garbage, Honda is just a little car company. Hyundai Genesis and Veracruz are the only decent looking asian cars.

If Toyota trannys are as "prone" to failure as you suggest, then you are equally "prone" to stretching the truth to its limits.
Admittedly, you're a Troller, with a Toyota bashing obssession.

Every GM car I have ever owned was purchased back through Lemon Laws so I know how your brother-in-law feels. Perhaps the strain of carting around your obese sister is more than the rated payload for the truck?

I drive a Toyota. My problem with Toyota is the poor transmission in the thing. It’s a Camry and its been in the shop FOUR TIMES! Among a few other little problems with the car.

Do I not have a right to express my views?

Obviously there are many other people with Toyota transmission problems.

So for now I stick to my story and that is…

Toyota transmissions are prone to failure

HUGE problem for Toyota@!

Nothing wrong with expressing one's views, but when it appears in every forum in this topic, over and over and over again.........
That's called "Trolling", which defines the difference between taking an issue and making it an obsession.

Like I said, I don't know what your problem is, but I'll bet it's hard to pronounce!

Fine!

Toyota engines are prone to sludge problems.

HUGE problems

Toyota engines build up sludge and stop working. They may leak oil in your driveway.

What a rude comment. You should be ashamed of yourself. In your world, anyone who doesnt like Toyota must be a redneck, loser, fat person, etc. Wow, the little respect I had for you is gone....kind of like Toyota's quality, LOL!!

I think that’s a tad over the top. Throughout history you shall concede that Asians don’t invent, they produce. Orientals have an innate ability to deconstruct, observe, study, and learn. We taught the Japanese how to build cars, radios, batteries, toasters, etc. and we continue to teach them how to build cars and trucks i.e. see tundra (still failing but improving).

Orientals are a very monotheistic breed hence the lack of creativity (see onstar, XM, and heated seats). It’s very interesting to note the simple fact that history repeats itself. Orientals (regardless of what make) either Chi-con or Jap, are obsessed with domination. This was their downfall in the past, and remains their obstacle of the future. I’m not worried.
