  1. Never mind. I found the sales figures in the forums. Those numbers don't seem to correlate with the number of tundras I see on the road. They seem to be everywhere, but according to the numbers, the domestics are stilling crushing the tundra. GM and Ford need to finish the tundra off. Crush it completely. I think they have the ability to do it.
  2. Seeing so many of these tundras on the road has prompted me to try and find what the sales figures (for 2009 and so far in 2010) are for the tundra, especially compared to GMC/Chevrolet, Ford, and Dodge. For the life of me, I've looked all over the internet and can't find any figures.
  3. I don't doubt this for a minute. Every prius owner, no make that every toyota owner I know is a douche bag. I agree also that these people feel as though they are "owed" something because they're so smart and they're saving the planet for all of us. Douche friggin' bags.
  4. The articles that I read, are always tearing apart the cobalt. While I'm not an economy car type, I have driven a cobalt and happen to think it's a pretty good little car. I don't think it's a bad looking car either. The SS version is actually appealing, but since the cruze is supposed to be so much better than the cobalt, I'm sure that getting 40 mpg (hwy) is going to make it very appealing.
  5. I swear, toyota makes the ugliest cars on the road.
  6. I read the following article on yahoo news. I think this is why people who are really interested in facts about the auto industry or those of us who actually care about what happens to the American automotive industry, put absolutely no stock in what these people say. But I bet every, prius driving, consumer reports reading, half wit, will curl up on the sofa with his latte and laptop and proudly soak up the latest "toyota kool-aid report". I think EVERYONE has heard, by now, that GM filed for bankruptcy, don't you think? We get it!!! GM filed for bankruptcy. What is so amazing to me, is th
  7. Man, I agree with you, but GM filed for bankruptcy. I mean, come on. Aren't you forgetting that? Yeah, yeah, toyota has a few million recalls on a part that caused the death and injury to people, but dude... GM filed for bankruptcy. (I am being sarcastic, not to you, but about this subject because it makes me want to throw up in my mouth) BTW, can I post this same topic over in the toyota section?
  8. I read the following article on yahoo news. This is why people who are really interested in the auto industry and actualy might really "care" about the "American" automotive industry, put absolutely no stock in what these people have to say. But you know every, prius driving, consumer reports reading, half wit, will curl up on the sofa with his latte and laptop to read the latest "toyota daily report". I think EVERYONE has heard, by now, that GM filed for bankruptcy, don't you think? We get it!!! GM filed for bankruptcy. What is so amazing to me, is that this little article about the m
  9. For those of you who haven't driven a solstice, You HAVE got to get behind the wheel and try one for yourself. My mother-in-law just purcashed a GXP model with the turbo and OMG!! That car is amazing. IT's fast, it handles like a REAL sports car, it's incredibly great looking, and it's relatively inexpensive. What the hell? If GM kills that car when Pontiac goes, then I just don't get it. Chevy, Buick, hell even Cadillac could make SOMETHING outta that car. My aunt has a late model BMW Z4. I've compared them side by side and there isn't one reason one would choose the bimmer, other t
  10. It is amazing to read articals like this and observe the obvious media bias in favor of toyota. They make excuses for toyota and then say that these screw ups, which have led to the death of some people, won't affect people's perception of the quality of toyota vehicles...?? Then, in the middle of the article, they have to state that Ford had the largest single recall back in 1996. It was for ignition switches. Nobody was killed or injured in the problem Ford had with those switches, so I think that it is yet another example of how the media folks love those foreign cars and try to tal
  11. Yeah, all the news agencies are always touting how great toyotas are and that they want us to believe they have "a whole bunch" of cash. Well, since toyota is such a bad ass company, I say let THEM pay for the entire thing. That shouldn't even phase such a stable, "cash-o-plenty" company.
  12. Fixing something that isn't broken is something I hate. The original wreath and crest (with the ducks) was the way God intended it to be. The latest is better, but still isn't original, which = not as good as it could be. Standard of the World, baby!!!
  13. Dude, they didn't admit it until this guy came on, last June. Actually "they" didn't admit jack. THIS guy did, which is why I said he sounds like a smart guy. Toyota has known for a while where they were headed and have led us to believe they were the only company beating the odds because they were soooo good. I'm not saying other companies haven't made bad decisions or made horrible mistakes, but there is only one toyota and I don't like the company at all. Matter of fact most of the people that I know that drive toyotas are assholes.
  14. Well I did a search on the forums to see if it had been talked about before and didn't find anything. I'm a Chief Marshal and had never heard about this car. I got a call last week from someone associated with or with this company asking me if the vehicle was of interest to me. Since I had never heard of it, I had no idea. After looking at it and reading the specs, this might be a quality piece here, if they actually build it. It's a HUGE market that Ford is supposedly going to abandon with the demise of the Crown Vic. Tahoes and Chargers are good alternatives. I currently drive an
