I totally agree that Toyota sucks. How could anyone in their right mind purchase a product so inferior and unreliable. They only hire folks without educations aor minimal education at best that they can mastermind and teach their Toyota "methods." I would rather take public transportation than buy or even ride in a Toyota. The worst part is, they like to Americans.

Most folks who work there are very educated, hence, their stinking attitude. Education does not always mean/= being a rear end, but if educated only in a certain discipline and not in treating others as equals (as in being human), said education can turn one into a real jerk. As for toyotas being junk, they are not, however I choose not to own one on principle. I wish that more products were made in the US by US owned companies.
If we, as US citizens, want to slow down and or turn back foriegn made products inundating our markets, the first step is simple: 1) Acknowledge that they make a good product at a cheaper cost, but 2) Refuse to buy said product, and decide to pay a little more for a superior product.
All that being said, I would not lose any sleep if the Buffalo plant shut down and the "furriners" went home.

America does NOT make a superior product. I am very patriotic but, I am also truthful.
I do not like any car so I instead drive 4x4 pickups. Chevy, dodge and ford have nothing even close to the tocoma. The yota will run longer without repairs and get a lot better fuel mileage while doing it. The tundra stomps the crap out of the big 3 in half ton truck and the tundra holds it's own against the big 3's 3/4 ton. Unless you are hauling a heavy trailer that requires a 1 ton truck then toyota IS the better choice.
I have never owned a toyota and never will because I am racist but, ain't it a shame that Americans can't build quality trucks?

Many of the people I work with do own them and have much better reliability than their coworkers. I do like my dodge cummins but comparing it to a gas engine isn't a good comparison.

For all you MORONS out there that don't know how to research a subject, Toyota's are built by American workers, with American made parts. In fact,Toyota Camry has more American made parts in them than any of the "BIG THREE" autos.
It is a documented fact.
And it has been proven they last longer than other
vehicles.

You are correct jug. If a person would only go to the factories they could see for themselves that yotas have higher quality control inspections than the big 3.
A bunch of information can be found on line.

If you want to drive japanese cars then go to japan. We dont need you here. Toyotas are not superior to anything. A good product yes. But better than all the rest... No. Period. Biggest difference is that people simply believe commercials. And the fact that toyota truck owners dont work them. They are just passenger cars.

Have you idiots ever even opened a history book? Look up the toyota war. Fought in 1987 between Chadian and Libyan warriors. Chad ended up winning the war because of toyota technicals. The toyota hilux is the most popular truck in history. I am a patriot and a son of the american revolution. I am a true blood dating to the early 1600's. The Toyota is next to the ak-47 as a force multiplier. It has fought more wars than jeeps and hummer's combined. Allied forces use it and guess what we also used toyota's in iraq and afgan conflict's. It makes me sick that American's think that they are the center of the universe! You will be cut down to size by a battle hardened Hilux. Have you ever even seen a top gear bbc episode? Thank you for being such typical easy target American Morons. pick a book up once and a while it may surprise you what goes on outside your small mind bubble.

You are a moron! You know nothing of the real world. Ask a Army ranger what is the baddest truck on the planet it's not a Hummer or a Jeep. It is a Hilux Toyota. The most bulletproof, easy to work on and most of all simple. Try to argue with a Afgan soldier with a toyota tattoo on his arm and a ak-47 in his hand. Like I said you know nothing of the "real world". You would be shot in a heartbeat over in the shit.

An army ranger would be the last person i would ask about a good truck. Toyotas are not and never will be up to par with dodges or chevrolets. And i dont need a soldier to tell me that. Keep buying foreign and killing your country you idiot.

Anyone who claims Toyota cars (or trucks) are superior to other makes on the road is not looking at cars built over the past five years.
Someone earlier claimed that the "tocoma" is a better truck than the US brands - I'm guessing he meant the Tacoma, but in reality the Tacoma is not a well built product. A quick google search will show transmission and reliability issues are common.
When it comes to cars, Toyotas are flimsy and not as reliable as Ford or GM products over the past 5 years.
When it comes to design I doubt their is anyone with vision who thinks Toyota design can be described as anything except boring.
Bottom line, Toyota builds boring junk.

Lol.....this is funny . Toyota quality is going farther down everyday . Temps do most of the inspection jobs at the assembly plants anymore. Throttle issues ?? Nothing will ever be found , during warm up if an engine fails to pass they simply change the parameters so it does !!! That is a fact . In 2010 we were brought in to investigate an issue at the engine plants , this solution was confirmed by a Toyota engineer , in house at a plant . My family will never own a Toyota on this alone . Neither should yours

I can't believe that some jackass actually thinks that just because its a Japanese company that its NOT employing thousands of Americans..hence "American Made"

Ironically what did GM, Ford, etc do to their American workforce? Oh, that's right- they automated their asses out of a job.

I drive a Chevy, but Toyota at least is willing to hire Americans..not only Americans but West Virginians. Good for them.

Whoever said that the only people thy work there are uneducated...well bub, at least those uneducated people aren't sucking up the government titty like a lot of shiftless layabouts I see running amok.

It all varies between car manufacturer, toyota,lexus,scion & hino all have very small (compared to american motors), reliable 4-6 cylinder engines, all made in america in almost 40 different states, transmissions are also american made, 75%-95% of a toyota brand vehicle is made in america, save for certain, specialty cars such as the LFA or the now defunct, supra 2jz
Ford has 55% of their trucks made in mexico, sedans are 68% made in canada, 4 cylinders are mexican, and so on.
Chevy has half of their motors coming from china and taiwan, body parts and suspension parts from canada and china.
Don't even get me started on what was once dodge, now an italian made truck.
Toyota's have, and always will be the goto choice if you truly want dependable, affordable, american made cars now, this is what america has turned into, a country, once besieged by and then victorious (if you call two nukes victory) over another country who if not for this small country would have lost 55% of its skilled labor jobs to outsourcing, in short, toyota almost saved this country during the reccesion by creating millions of jobs and products, for the american people. Toyota has been in the us for over 100yrs now, time we start showin them thanks.
