    Yep, yota and other jap auto makers come over here take full advantage of our system and builds their junk to avoid import tariff. Everyone squawks about made in the USA. That's a load of crap they use to justify their purchase of a foreign product. I see broken and defective jap stuff all the time. They're no better than our domestic stuff.

    Everything Chrysler made in that era has junk plastic. Freightliner m2 cab's were being delivered with crumbling plastic as late as 3 or 4 years ago
    What era? My 01 is fine other than the dash. No problems with the 03 to 07s.

    IMO, it's about Brand/model recognition and perceived lack of quality of American cars. The Ford Fiesta, Fusion, Taurus and Focus are damn good cars but the Taurus is ugly. It is a shame about the model cancellations because all three of those models have high performance versions that kick azz.
    Maybe if they copied the styling of the Camry, like you said, they would sell better.

    Toyota comes in 4th place in every comparison Iíve ever seen. Also it is assembled in USA but Toyo employers a fraction of the workers that GM does.

    The first and only new vehicle I ever bought was a Toyota. What a huge disappointment. It was a nice car but was in the shop ALL the time. Even with extended warranty it cost me out the ass. Finally in internal part came loose and was digested by the engine. This WAS a Toyota problem. The car was less than 6 mo out of warranty. They would do a damn thing. I fixed it and sold it. It made it two years and it was a yard ornament for the girl that bought it.

    Never again.
