Went to Toronto Auto Show

Recommended Posts

So... I went yesterday. I went with my parents, grandpa and a friend of mine. We all walked around together to all the exhibits - if somebody wanted to see it, we would spend a little time. The only companies that we didn't go to? Toyota and Kia. :lol: Kia just didnt have anything new we wanted to see, and there were a few comments about not having enough coffee for the Toyota exhibit.

GM's exhibit was really impressive. They had a stage where they drove the vehicles up as they introduced them.

Lexus had a really impressive 'owners lounge' at the back of their exhibit. Show your Lexus key, get in to the lounge and get free coffee, food etc.

Ford actually had a decent exhibit this year - it's always been one of the most boring, but this year they had a Fusion with sheets of water pouring down around it with projecters showing videos on the water. It was a neat effect. You could see the video on the water, but you could also see through the water to the car. I won a Wayne Gretzky / Ford hat at the exhibit for entering my name in one of the draws. How hard is it to remove embriodery from a hat? I don't want to walk around and offend people with four-letter F words on my hat. :P

One of the last ones we went to see was Nissan. I walked up to the Titan and went to look at the little compartment they have at the back of the bed, underneath where it wont get wet. There is a little door in the side, with a plastic handle I pulled on. It was locked, and the plastic handle snapped off in my hand. I didn't pull hard at all, and was completely shocked that it broke like that. I looked at the one beside it, and somebody else had already broken the one off that truck! Good quality there Nissan....

If enough of these small icebergs hit, maybe this Titan can be sunk. Good going, darty boy! :)

From the title you make it sound like the doors fell off. A small, plastic handle breaking isn't a big deal, IMO (especially at an auto show).

I could understand that for a prototype, but the Titan's been out for a while. Problems like this should have been solved already.

The plastic handle is the only way to open the compartment. If I put my groceries in there and went to take them out at home and the handle broke off, I'd be rather pissed at Nissan. The groceries would probably be nice and rotten by the time I got it to a garage to have them open it.
