I'm sick of always hearing about the Detroit Three's issues in every news source on this planet while every problem with an import company is never heard about.

Toyota just had a 470,000 vehicle recall in Japan. This is the largest recall in Japanese History. Not to mention the all the problems with the Tundra.

uhm, the tables are turning now. I read several auto publications a day. I read a lot about Toyota's issues and very little negative press on the Detroit 3 now

all manufactures will have issues at one point or the other. I drive chevy's and jeeps. it's part of growth. toyota will have to figure out the truck issues just like everyone else. it will be a while before they are on par with the big three in that department

I don't mind, I just hate the sheeple that blindly follow certain brands and will not acknowledge their downfalls either.

Good. I haven't been back in the Detroit area long enough to read the Free Press but I know that newspaper was notorious for always bashing the Detroit Three.

American trucks built buy American companies and American citizens are the way to go. Allot people in this country depend on the big three to stay a float right now. I think its about time that Toyota is bashed a little in the press,and to be honest, I have heard enough of how the desk driving journalists love them. BUY AMERICAN

zjjamie...that's a very patriotic point of view and I support it. However, it's not very realistic in my opinion. Americans are going to look for a bargain and don't really care who makes the car or where.

I'm going on record right now and saying that if the U.S. doesn't start putting out more flex fuel cars and producing more renewable fuels...we're going to be screwed. Ehtanol, Hydrogen and BioDiesel are going to be HUGE in the next 10 to 15 years, possibly sooner. Of course, corporate America is going to find a way to make the price way too high...but the big 3 need to start planning now.

Brazil is good example. I think Hydrogen brings to mind images of the Hindenburg (sp?) and will not be as big as Ethanol or BioDiesel.

Yoda trucks (to get back on subject) are right in line with the company policy to sell cheaper and more volume than the big three. However, truck consumers (again my opinion) are willing to pay for a sturdy, well-made truck rather than a 'replaceable' one.

I agree with the alternative fuels or flex fuel vehicles 100%. There is no dought in my mind that is the very near future for anything that has an engine. The thing about the sturdy, well made trucks, compared to a replaceable truck, what do you mean exactly? I am all about the consumer buying what they need or want, so if you want a toyota, buy one. I just think its time to buy one of the big 3's products. They are all better or just as good as the japanese truck, and yes I have driven all of them. We all know how the auto companies are doing financially right now. If there is no money coming in, there is less money for research and development of these future vehicles. I know at Ford the flex fuel option is everywhere and hybrid vehicles are spreading into a couple of different models in the near future. Its a slow start, but they are all heading in the right direction.
