I might be wrong but Nissan has a good chance of moving up a couple notches:

I thought Toyota was suppose to be all about quality? Whatever happened to that moto?

Guess owning a Nissan isn't as bad as others presume.

LOL! That's funny that you say that. An article appeared in our local paper about the Toyota recall. It said that older generations who have owned problem free Toyota's for years are more willing to see this recall as one minor problem. However, the article said that Toyota is more interested in the younger generation of the population as they are the future car buyers. This recall could turn those first time Toyota buyers towards another brand when they purchase their next vehicle; all because of the recall.

Lol. They just announced on our local news channel that the two Toyota plants in Ontario, and one other plant (somewhere in the US) will be closing for at least the next two weeks to figure out the problem w/ these vehicles. They will also be stopping sales at all Toyota dealerships for the next two weeks (on most of their vehicles - the ones that are hit by the recall). That will be a big loss for Toyota!

i guess if you all know someone shopping for a boring toyota, let them know to ask the salesperson if the car they are looking @ has a self-accelerate feature.

LOL!

Ya Toyota is pretty popular here. My cousin has a Matrix that he bought when I got my Versa. I don't know if he's experienced this problem before. Either way, I would want my car checked if I had a Toyota.

i drove a 1990 corolla and a 99 corolla for a while and both of the cars were great! no problems. the only reason i stopped driving them was bc i wanted to get newer looking cars. i love my sister's yaris, but it is way tooo small and it feels very cheap.
