Would you feel better if the bulk of the profits went to a Japanese auto maker or an american auto maker's pocket when the american trucks are built outside the country. Do your research again. Feed an American family and use american technology and R&D or send it to a country outside? In the long run what do you get with paying Ford or GM when the money goes to a couple fat cats at the top who cut costs to build the truck outside and ironically your tax money goes towards fleet sales either way

I've seen enough and more people claiming the same thing you say but babying their american trucks and abusing the crap out of a Japanese truck. Try and understand how International business works. They take the money they make off sales and invest huge amounts into production facilities in the United States and the pay checks they write go straight to an American worker's pocket.

That's exactly the point. You've heard stories. Look up the Ford explorer debacle. Remember that. Where their pieces of junk were killing people because they couldn't design an SUV that wouldn't roll over or pop its tire. Jeep Cherokee most recently couldn't pass the moose test. As far as the safety goes, its top notch. Reliability goes a long way if you bother to maintain the car.

but how good is it when it is a company that hoses Americans? How good is a company that doesn't give 2 you know whats about their product after the sale? Don't pull the "its made in America" game when the bulk of the profits go to Japan. Of course they have stuff here but in the long run we don't get much out of it and they play it like its a huge thing.

Really, so everything was repaired without a fight? Toyota has never tried to push an issue under the rug? I've heard plenty of stories about the Tacoma frames that weren't repaired and other issues that won't be acknowledged by them. And yes, I have owned them all, the domestic trucks without a doubt preform 10x better for the work I do, the foreign stuff never lasted more than around 80k on average while most of the GM trucks are cresting 100, 200, and 400k. Of course competition is good, cont

In your comment to crackaddict444 you referencing owning companies. If it were true you'd be doing more than spreading misinformation on youtube. Toyota had a frame issue with the Tacoma which they recalled all 150.000 and repaired. Yes pathetic life given your lack of basic understanding of how international business works. You can keep trying to pull this buy domestic bullshit but the fact is competition is a good think. Learn to be unbiased and support innovation.

Owning those companies? Can you eleborate? I'm pretty sure Toyotas had frame issues that they wouldn't recall? And the acceleration? Trying to cover up recalls and bribe people out of lawsuits? And my pathetic life? Quick to judge aren't we, typical of a foreign car driver. Have a great day.

Good job owning those companies. Clearly you've learnt nothing during that time. Do a simple check of safety across the board. Ford and Toyota make the safest trucks out there. Now go back to your pathetic life.

Safety glass does the same thing. Guess we should strip all cars of that too since it may cause debris to hit pedestrians. Let's weld the wheels onto the car too just so we're being safe.
