Smartest move I've made in a while was trading my 2009 Toyota Matrix for a 2011 Honda CRV-XL and removing myself from the Toyota family. Whalla.....no more problems.
It's not like Toyota was fixing the ones that I pointed out to them. I'll never buy another Toyota.
I had never noticed the CRV until a friend told me about them. Now, I recommend checking them out.
You never noticed them because they are bland, like driving a bag of dirt.

I have many toyota vehicals, and some industrial equipment. I have a 1984 toyota truck with now over 1,378,378 miles. Sure it has some patches to the frame due to rust issue with a boxed frame but it starts everyday and make the rounds checking wells and measuring tanks. The engine has never been rebuilt. Used Amzoil 15-40 marine diesle oil with a bypass filtering system.
I will take a toyota product with a fuel leak , sticking pedel, and a falling spare tire over any Osama buggy any day.
Osama buggy? This from a guy that has supported Japans economy for decades. Nice.
I'm sure you patched frame Toyota truck is a fine and very safe vehicle. People can go all day comparing high mileage vehicles and they come from all different manufactures. You should contact Guiness or whoever because the highest mileage for a gasoline engined without being replacement or rebuilt is 600k. And it's a crappy 1979 Caddy. The highest ever is a Volvo, 2.6 million on the car, not the engine. Yep you've got you a world record holder.

Exactly....from the outside, they are bland. They look good on the inside though, drive very well, and are extremely reliable.

I've had GM's, Chevy's, Ford's, Chrysler's, Saturn's, Toyota's, and Honda's. My #1 preference is a GMC truck but I have a long commute so it isn't practical. Saturn is out of business, I looked at Chrysler and was surprised that it's parts content is nearly the same as the Honda CRV and the Chrysler-engine was assembled in Mexico, where they're chopping off heads.

Toyota proved unreliable to me but Honda, with nearly 70% U.S. part-content and assembled right here in Ohio, is a close to American-made as Chrysler, Ford, and GM. So, I'm supporting non-union workers at home.

Don't diagree with you, just sayin the CRV is bland and the styling is dated. Should have checked out the new vastly improved Chevy Equinox. Also built in the states.
Toyota has certainly fallen on hard times in the reliability department but nothing is built like an older (80/90's) Toyota pickup. Those thing are unstoppable. Same with the old Honda Accords before they became near luxury cars.
Sad that GM dropped Saturn. They really lost their way with what Saturn was in the beginning. You could not beat the sales and service experience from a Saturn dealer.

I owned three Saturns. Loved them. The Equinox, I considered, actually. Let's just say I'm still a little bitter over having bailed out the auto-industry and the unions are still ungrateful. Having worked for a Honda/Toyota supplier once-upon-a-time, I can appreciate how they take care of their employees and aren't unionized. Hince, the cars are generally more affordable and you're not nearly as likely to catch their employees on camera during lunch getting drunk and smoking dope.

Just sayin'.....and the parts content percentage are nearly identical.

I can understand the bitterness but alot of folks don't realize that the Asians and European car makers deal with auto unions in their own countries that use tactics that make our union (some) thugs seem downright innocent.

Granted, but our tax-dollars didn't go to bail-out the Asian and European auto unions though.

And you have in fact supported Toyota and Honda with tax dollars. Cash for Clunkers and tax breaks given to foriegn manufactures to build plants on basically free land in the U.S.
I'm sorry that saving American manufacturing and jobs is such an issue for you. More then just the UAM are intertwined with GM and Chrysler. Alot more.
If we are ever involved in another world war, will the pacifist Japanese allow the U.S. to use their U.S. factories for defense purposes like GM, Ford, and Chrysler have done in history? Maybe so if it is Japan that is under direct threat from say China, but otherwise it's doubtful.
I bet your from the baby boomer generation. The most destructive and unpatriotic generation.

I will say this to you and then you can take your opposing opinion and stuff it seeing as how you're being the aggressor.

Not that it's any of your f#ck!ng business but I graduated H.S. in the mid-'80's. I am a fourth generation service-member....our four generations represented four services, each of us serving in warzones....

-Great Grandfather - Navy, WWI
-BOTH Grandfathers - Amry/Navy, WWII (one grandfather survived a ship that was sang).
-Father - USMC - Vietnam (3 tours)
-Me - USAF - Desert Storm -- and I still serve the USAF to this day.

I bought a Honda because it's a solid and reliable car. I don't support the UAW because Obama saw fit to pour our tax-dollars into an unprofitable business and that is socialism.

You need to stop being a d<i<c<k and realize that just because someone doesn't agree with you they are from the Jane Fonda-era.

Now, you're welcome for my family's contributions to your freedom so go F<U<C<K yourself and have a nice weekend.

Thanks for the family tree. I don't support the UAW, I find it useless in todays economy. But I support Americans and American business when I can. I'm sure your Grandfathers would be proud of America's obsession with Asian products.
I , like many, have generations who served their country , including myself as a retired Marine, Desert Storm, 90 and Clinton's little forgotten war, Bosnia, 93 and 95. So we both along with so many other families have contributed to America's freedom. Your freedom to support a company headquartered in Tokyo Japan and mine to support companies (when possible)based in the country I live in. As a fellow veteran, I do thank you for your service though. But since you chose to take my opinion and make it into a F<U>C<K me , F>U<C<K yourself gutter conversation let me add that CRV is in fact solid and reliable. But I hope you bought it for your wife as it is about as feminine for a male to be seen in as a New Beetle Convertible, Jeep Compass or a Mary Kay pink Cadillac.

You got a point there. American auto makers make much sexier cars. Most Japanese cars are reliable but boooooooring!

Different opinions on this forum are healthy and contribute to some good discussion. However, the recent profanity and personal attacks do not reflect positively on this forum. This is my opinion, take it or leave it.
