After the problems Toyota has just had, my thoughts are that quality control must be at its highest right now. There are some exceptional deals right now, and it might be a good time to buy. I owned one long ago and it was a terrific car. Everyone I know who has one swears by it. Any thoughts?

My next truck is going to be a Tacoma. Hopefully brand new, just waiting for my Jeep cherokee to finally die.

As a Toyota owner since 1990, I have nothing but good things to say about the Toyotas I've owned. The '07 Camry I'm currently driving is the best one yet. My wife drives a RAV4 and loves it.

When this all shakes out we are going to see shades of the Audi debacle in the '80's.

I would buy one without hesitation. One of the best running cars I've ever owned was an '82 Corolla-Tercel.

Buy a Ford. They didn't take a dime of bail out money, have been around forever, and make a quality product.

I wouldn't buy one before the recent recalls, and I still won't buy one.

I agree. Not to be morbid but I've always thought that the best time to fly was after a major crash...

You know, I would not sell them down the river at all. Every auto company has had recalls and for some reason Toyota is being tied to the Whipping Post, no pun intended.
They're cars are more reliable than anything and they have the track record to prove it.

Wife bought a Toyota late last year. She really wanted the comparable Ford but there was just too many things she preferred with the Toyota. Now she really regrets it and wishes for a fair deal to trade it. We practice the "shift to neutral" to try to make it an ingrained habit. The way Toyota has handled this is far worse to us then the actual defect.

If I were in the market for a vehicle, I'd buy a 'Yoter in a minute! Very well built from the ground up and dependable!

I know a lot of folks who drive late model (and older) Toyotas - NONE of them have experienced any of the problems currently being played out on the network news.

The conspiracy theorist in me says that some of these charges were the imagination of the United Auto Workers Union. Maybe even the Federal government: "let's steer the buyer towards the American "big 3" - get some of that bail-out money back!"

I've owned 4 Toyotas and they all performed flawlessly year in year out. At 130k miles they ran like brand new whereas the three Fords I've owned all had transmissions die around 75k miles (and the transmission shop said this was very common). I'd buy a new Toyota in an instant, and I'm sure my next vehicle will be one.

I'd hope you would not have problems within 2~3 years on a $40k vehicle.... That is not a good guage.

My family started buying Toyotas in 1979 and has never been disappointed. They are great cars that run forever and rarely need repairs. When it comes to trucks, I'd consider US brands. But if we're talking cars, there is no way I'd buy anything other than a Toyota or a Honda. My money is just too tight to take a gamble on a Ford or Chrysler.

Thanks to everyone for their inputs, much appreciated. I should have mentioned at the start I'm a big Ford guy (currently 4 in my family now) and am leaning toward a Focus, but the deals being offered on the Toyotas right now are hard to pass up. In addition, the car is for my son who recently received his masters degree and they have an additional $1000 college graduate discount on top of other incentives. The Camry seems to be a giving a lot more bang for the buck right now. Will be giving it a closer look in the next week or two and decide. About the USA thing (and I am pro "Buy American"), if I'm not mistaken, I believe Toyota has the largest auto assembly plant in the US. Again, thanks to everyone for their opinions.

I just an opinion, but if you have a choice between a Ford Focus or a Camary---take the damn Camary!!! A new Camary is practically a luxury car, a Focus is a souped up Escort.

I have an '07 Chevy Colorado with less than 24,000 miles that's paid for. I wouldn't consider trading it in for car payments on anything right now.

Toyota's have traditionally had great safety records.

I was involved in an accident this last January where someone ran a red light at about 40 miles an hour and ran into a huge Yukon, sending it directly into my path. I could have been killed, but I basically walked away (I had to stay in the hospital for a bit).

I was driving a 94 Corolla and it came through beautifully.
