Big Toyota fan, had several over the years. Wife's current is a 2011 Corolla. There was a time when the foreigns were far superior to American, but I believe the gap has closed. My current is a 2011 Ford F150. First Ford I have ever had, its a fantastic truck. Incentives, trade value and local dealer reputation a big factor with any purchase. My local Ford dealer is complete crap, I went to Toronto for my truck, and my local guy will NEVER get their hands on my wheels. I took it 2 hrs south for its 2yr once over, nothing found and they charged me zero for the inspection. They have my service business, worth the trip.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Ok, enough blah blah.

Now let's talk about the most awesome car ever made (and I plan to own one some day):

I am with Suprd...Toyota since i was 18 Startlet sport was nice. Corolla too, i totalled 8, but otherwise never had any probs.
But, I swithed to a Mazda sportsbreak 2.0I about a year ago, and I must say Mazda overrules Toyota now.
USA cars kick ass but petrol is worthmore than gold here..


Still have to find out what the adaptations will cost, when the cops pull me over ...
