I Don't Freaking Believe This!

26 posts in this topic

On one of my other forums somebody posted the story about Toyota's hush money and rust on the Tacomas and said "when will the big three start using loyalty to their customers?"

How can you possibly look at it that way and neglect that the trucks are $h!.

Toyota kool-aid makes you forget things. Honestly, it's that way with fans of pretty much anything. Get to loving something enough, and you start to overlook, if not deny, the downfalls of your favorite thing/person. For many people, it wouldn't sink in unless it happened to them personally.

I'm working on this theory that links children

who eat (lead) paint chips & Toyota drivers.

Honestly, I've come to realize that trying to

reasn or rationalise Toyopet humpers is

absolutely futile. So now I just either avoid

them, or sometimes, I try to piss 'em off.

The other day, like a week before my now

sold, beloved Banana Boat went to live in

the rough neighborhoods of Boston, I was

taking an offramp off rt.495.

--- Now I must interject for a sec. I am

NOT a slow or extremely cautious driver, I

have 28.75 hours worth of $h! crammed

into a typical day (i think they're still 24)

& I drive my big, heavy, couch on wheels

cars more like they are german-spec.

whale-tail turbo 911s, & less like the BOF,

land yachts they are. If on 100% dry

pavement my Roadmaster can negotiate

a particular on/off ramp at about 50mph

with minimal understeer & tire chirp, or

55 with tires squealing & heavy but semi-

controled oversteer, I will hit it at 45-48.

If it's a wet, miserable day with heavy fog

I will natrually cut it down to the 30s or

less but my point is, and I want to really

stress this, when alone I drive like I stole

it, esp. on turns.

Now with Julie and/or Sofia in the car I'm

often reminded by either to go-go-go

because I set the sruise at 70 in a 65 &

drive with more care & respect.

---

now back to rt.495: I'm alone and going

along pretty damn quick, as I take the

off ramp wide and start to cut in to carve

a good line without tire noise I see in my

rear-view a toyota sienna minivan

(current gen.) that is coming down on

the Banana's chrome bumper like it's a

freekin' Mad Max movie.

I could tell that if it was not for his ABS

the car (box on wheels) would be in

4-wheel brake lockup, drifting sideways

and about to rear end me & then bounce

off the guardrail.

If I had wanted to I could have just

tappped my brakes and his insurance

would have paid for those cracked rear

bumper fillers, along with an extra $1400

since the Banana would have been

totalled. He came close to rear ending

ME on an off ramp as I am already going

way faster than I should be.

That Sienna was yawing and bouncing

on its suspension like a Plymouth Fury II

police car in a 70s Hollywood car chase.

I know there's exceptions to the rule, I

myself know a few cool people who drive

Toyotas, but by in large many of their

owners are complete idiots that need a

prosthetic head!

That reminds me, I saw one of those big car haulings carring a full load of Tacomas of that year range on teh highway last week. Off to the scrapper I guess, so no one will ever know.

That's just retarded how anyone could not only put a positive spin on this, but claim that Toyotas better than GM...for apparently havingt o quietly recall the trucks which they couldn't build right teh first time.

Speaking of psycho Toyota drivers, I was headed over to Dave & Busters last night after work to a company event, driving my sister's 500SEL. I was rolling along at about 60 on the 101 when a blue Toyota Matrix blew past me at least 85 then cut in front of me onto an on-ramp (no signals). Thought the car looked familiar, turned out to be my manager. 4 of the people on my team drive Toyotas--a Tundra, 2 Priuses, a Camry, and the manager who has a Matrix and a Prius.

sigh... it must be running rampat down here in the south too... i have a buddy at work who has a 3500 hd gmc crew cab. he wanted a "good gas saver truck" wanted a toyota tacoma, tried to talk him into something else. wanted a double cab trd tacoma with a lift kit and all those dealer installed options. told him mpg drops drastically with that and sure enough the one he wanted came out to 17 and 20. so he got quiet about it. week later pulls up at work in a red 4x4 tundra double cab 5.7... lifted with 35's... hows that gas saving going. he gets 17 on the hwy with it. only saves money cause it aint deisel... oi veay

I can drive a truck with cracked sheetmetal to the dealer to get fixed, I can't drive one with a blown headgasket.... I'm also not a dick to people and have made plenty of friends in the chain of command so it WOULD get fixed.

Arguing with you is a waste of time though, you have an irrational hatred of anything other than your preferred imports (GM and Ford). Cause face it, Canada has no carmakers, they're all imports to you.

dont worry von thats a lost cause... hehe besides, he cant decide what he is... screen name sounds like a cop, i stick up for most patrolmen cause i got a lot for friends that are cops but he sounds like one that flaunts his badge... as for the plenty of friends he made a reference in that last statement that probably reveals how he got friends in high places.

now about that head gasket, i happen to own a 2004 colorado and i have gotten a statement that says the heads will be replaced if it fails within 100K miles... thats much easier to fix than say the underlying structure of a vehicle.

He's not a cop... He's a 19 yr old Software Engineering student. :AH-HA_wink:

Keep forgetting to post a photo I took abuot 3 weeks ago of

a red P-379 carrying a car-hauler trailer jam-packed with

about 10 tacomas.

When I showed it to SpeedingPenguin he laughed and said

LITTERALLY two or three truckloads of Tacomas are being

shipped out of the Toyota dealer every day.

He works as commercial parts manager at local parts store

who's picture windows directly overlook the huge Toyota of

Nashua superstore, they have one building for new cars,

one for new trucks/suvs and one for all the used stuff. His

window overlooks the SUV/Truck superstore.

Another slap in the face? the building they use for new cars

(Skions and Toyo-DUHs) was an Oldsmobile dealership for

4+ decades. DISGUSTING. :(

sorry toget off topic, back to the Tacomas, I was shocked to

hear this. I would have thought one, maybe two trucks a

week tops. This is just ONE dealership and they're trucking

away 20, 30 sometimes 40 Tacomas a day, every day for

weeks now. The other day one pulled away onto D.W. Hgwy

as SP was selling parts to a Tacoma owner and he laughed

and said "I bet that makes you think twice about buying

another Toyota..." to which the customer had a long-winded

speech about Toyota practicing corporate responsibility by

taking the trucks back etc.

It boggles the mind. :retard:

I just love the whole corporate-speak aspect of the whole thing: it isn't a matter of your death-trap truck being about to kill you, your family and possibly the rest of the people on the freeway when your frame rails turn into powder, or the sure and certain knowledge that it will be a PR disaster that would make the Pinto look like a weenie roast, oh no. It's Toyota's commitment to excellence that causes them to buy back your truck and crush it as far away from the prying eyes of the DOT or Nightline as possible. Just cash your check and have some more kool-aid, kids... :rolleyes:

Since his location is 'under my truck' , I'd assume he has a very skewed view of reliability and quality anyways.

That Quagmire guy is a riot.

Why post at that site? I have more maturity and intelligence in my entire right thumb than all of the members of that forum put together.
