When you come back with verifiable proof that anything you bought is better than absolute junk, an open ear awaits. (i,e. a sample size of thousands)

(To totally digress, as I usually do):
Personally, I don't think that anything that I haven't assembled myself (arrogance here), from all the correct off-the shelf components or those fabricated correctly, are pure trash, (see, don't have to spin a profit here)... I DO have to yield to the custom/unique market, as they have access to equipment I never could afford, but I am talking traditional builds.) The US car manufacturers were the most blatantly exploitive of cost-passing, because they were raped by unions. Listen, pals, if your expertise is putting wheels on cars on an assembly line, you aren't owed: time-and-a-half, more than minimum wage, any health care, and guaranteed employment... (Oh wait... a lot of those companies went out of business... gee I wonder why? ) I would have shut down the company before yielding to a union. Oh, to be given the opportunity. Give all the shareholders their money back, and watch the leeches do a deep six. Union = death to an on-shore company. Not that I care anymore, as I (and my family, and all relatives that I can even identify, including the hard-core buy-American types) all buy foreign, and I live foreign...

Now, back to the topic at hand.... please.
Hahaha obvious posts are obvious. Good work captain. Did I touch a nerve or are you always so sensitive?

P.s. you based your experience on your cars according to your post...

I do tend to prefer GMs and Toyotas over other brands, but mostly because I've spent a lot of time with both and they are familiar. When my wife was car shopping last year she looked at MANY different brands, but ended with an ATS. Part of that is because we've owned a lot of GM vehicles and it was familiar. And for myself, I'm driving a Toyota Tacoma. This is the second Tacoma I've owned, of course I've owned many cars in between the two.

I also tend to avoid cars that I've had problems with. I owned a couple of Mitsubishis in the 90's, and while my '88 Conquest was one of my favorite cars (nostalgia makes it seem better than it was), I had a lot of problems with it. So I won't buy another Mitsubishi. They probably make some good cars, but there are plenty of other options so I just avoid them.

Nolo comprende....

My sample size is huge... The cars I own are a very, very small subset of what I have been exposed to. I don't buy garbage.
If you could be a little more specific, perhaps we could all benefit (regardless of the state you are from).

Enlighten us all... we would be most receptive.

No response = failure.

Not the least bit sensitive here.. I am a hard *ss in some ways... just tend to hate unions, as I do democrats, but that is not for this forum, so we can deal with it elsewhere.

The only new Toyota I've seen that ever so slightly raised my heart rate is the Camry Sport.

In regards to the Corolla... Entry level, if you even want to call it that, shouldn't mean boring. Just about every other compact car on the market looks and drives better than the Corolla.

I remember when Toyota made some sporty cars (Supra, Celica, etc). But I guess Scion has kind of taken over that role.

Once I am 50+, I'm sure a boring Toyota will be a fine car.
