Reason #421,572 why I hate TOYOTA

86 posts in this topic

A good buddy at work and fellow pre-war car fan (esp. Buick) got

hit by a dumb lady in a Highlander... but he was on his "beater"

bike, a late 1970s Honda. Damn near got killed.

He said the lady in the Toyota NEVER looked, beeped his horn not

once but twice as she ran the stop sign, braced for impact &

then 3sec. later he had a bent fork, fu&$ed up hand/wrist/leg/arm

not to mention a host of other injuries & damage to the bike.

Sooooo fu#%ing typical of a Toyota owner. If you walk into a

Toyota dealership chances are you should really be buying a buss

pass, economy pack of metemucil &/or extra-absorbent depends.

(not to make light of bladder control)

Let the Toyopet bashing begin! :angry:

Its funny you bring this up, because my better half allowed me to drive the Prius today, and I'll be damned, as soon as I got in the car, I became oblivious to the world around me. I was running stop signs, driving through yards, cruising down the wrong side of the street, I even exposed my genitals to a gaggle of nuns. Thank you for informing me that it was the vehicle I was driving that caused this behavior and not some sort of free-will, conscious decision to place my priorities on things other than driving. I feel better now knowing that such a great mind has found the root of my odd behavior.

More objective, unbiased observations from the peanut gallery!

I've never seen a geriatric zombie in a Buick :rolleyes:

68, be careful--the backbone of Buick's entire clientele have one foot in the grave.

At least 65% of the time that I have been tailgated, cut of, or otherwise treated to unfriendly driving techniques, it is a Toyota as the offending vehicle.

I call 'em Toyota drivers, and avoid them at all cost.

Im not joking.

The other 35%? Mostly Asian makes.

The only really bad domestic cars with terrible drivers I encounter would be large SUVs and/or minivans.

More often than not, someone driving an Impala, Neon, Fusion or whatever, will let me merge properly, and use their damn turn signals to show what the hell they are doing.

Anytime you need some help getting that Prius up a hill, I do carry bungee cords on my road bike and can give you a tow for a small fee.

j/k :D

Now would be a perfect time for Fly to drop in and express his opinion of Toyota drivers.

We really need to improve drivers ed in this country. I honestly can't figure out why 1/4 of the people on the road are allowed to drive. And what's bad is that it's not really stupidity, it's more or less "rookie mistakes"

And I thought the media was biased!

No wonder I'm the enemy here--you guys are now assigning qualities to what people drive that are simply manifestations of your own irrational hatred. You've never been cut off by an American SUV with its driver on the cell phone? Please.

Just when I thought this site had come to it senses, a thread like this one pops up and devalues every legitimate point you posters actually make. The saddest part is you simply don't see it.

Of course, but (from my own experience, being as unbiased as possible) Im almost 3 times as likely to be cut of by a Camry or Corolla.

Pretty much every time I've been cut off it's either been a woman in an SUV (on the phone, most likely) or some dumbass in a monster truck (Dodge Ram, Ford Super Duty, etc) with an NRA sticker or other bubba crap (truck nutz, etc).

i pretty much concur with this. if i had a rocket launcher with me when i drove, there'd be about 10 destroyed toyopets within the last month alone.

Lack of driving sensation and feedback does tend to dull the senses considerably...

guys - it's the boredom that ensues from driving the cars that causes them to weave and dodge through traffic the way they do...they are so bored that they FORGET THEY ARE MOVING. But to say the accident that happened to your buddy was caused JUST because the person was in a Toyota is kind of ludicris. Remember, no matter who made the car, it takes an idiot to turn the key and forget they are piloting a 2 ton weapon down the road. I often think of the amount of trust we put into people we do not even know every single day in this country...think about all the nameless faces you pass on the road daily...how do you know they will stay in thier lane? Stop when they are supposed to? We just trust people to do the right thing...in your buddy's case - she did not.

Could the large number of complaints against Toyota drivers be based on the number of Toyota cars on the road? They do sell a lot of cars in the States you know!

I will say, no bias intended, that I do have a 'toyota driver' mentality on the road. I watch them closely for the digressions that you are all talking about. My dad complains about it too. Like they have this air about them that they are entitled to the space they are taking on the road because they are in a Toyota and saving the world or something. Worst part for me is Toyota Motor Credit is a mile from my house, so I have to cross through Tokoyo every morning and evening going to and from work. It gets seriously dangerous. And the looks I get from the snobs in thier Camrys and Corrolas piss me off when I roll by in my Tahoe...ugh!

I don't live near any Nuns...so I do not know if they get flashed by the genitalia of Toyota drivers often or not...so I will just have to believe Satty.

1/4? Are you kidding? It's more like 3/4!

Stupidity knows no brand loyalty...I've seen assholes/idiots in picksups (who think they own teh road) Jeeps (dunno why but so many Jeep owners I've been in traffic with drive like no one else is on the road...must be a Jeep thing), of course the fart can teenage pricks in their Civics and other riced $h!boxes. Although yeah there are more than a few people in Toyotas who seem oblivious to the road....but so are their in Lincolns (can't see my f@#king brake lighst right in front of you asshole?!) Buicks, and so on.

I actually think I drive more carefully when I drive our Sienna, than I do when I'm in my Sierra, or the Econoline's at work.

Because it was Toyota reaction post that made you do it, not lack of self-restraint, right? :thumbsup:

That's why it's called the lounge...things can get crazy in here... :AH-HA_wink:

This is where we come to goof off or vent....

Enjoy the crazies..welcome to the party.. :thumbsup:

Not every thread has to be serious....

Exactly...this is one of the smartest things you've said in a whole string of smart things you've said...

...I agree, and I've driven a Prius and "hated" it for just that reason.

I can't believe he has a Prius and a Fusion time to get rid of the Prius and get a Malibu Hybrid or something... Toyota drivers can be very bad... Especially Prius drivers saving gas and driving like they could care-less if they make a light. :unsure::wacko:
