So when you build in inferior product in every category, you go to the "well they got a bailout" argument?


and just for an added kick in the balls...


lets do a google search of "toyota frame rot recall"

Iíll raise you one, check out this Ford beauty.

Crash Test Ford F150 - YouTube

Absolute junk and the spark plugs wonít stay in the heads on this gen.

Oh BTW Toyota offered a recall for a frame replacement or a buy out at 1.5 times the KBB value. Ford, GM or CryCo would have told their customers to get bent.

Your basing that on the location of the assembly plant or where the parts were made.
How many parts on that Toyota say made in America on them?
and the majority of the money that is paid for one leaves the country.

The Tundra Is Now America’s “Most American” Pickup | Tundra Headquarters

Nope and nope... Although this is a couple years old and I believe the F150 is back to p1 for parts content again. For quite a few years Tundras 75-80 % domestic PARTS CONTENT was the highest of light duty pickups...Your last sentence shows how much you dont understand about global economics and how every auto manufacturer operates in todays world.

You really think that money you paid for a toyota stays in the USA?
It goes to japan.

Even tho I own a toyota I fallow Toyota like you would a garbage truck.

When I open the hood of one you see nipendoso and toyota not made in the USA.

That is one model , lets look at the whole line up, one model does not make it an American CO.
There was a day when made in America meant something, those days are long gone. All most everything has forien content.

Critics say the labels don't tell the entire story of a car's domestic status, pointing to jobs generated by assembly lines, dealerships and marketing departments. Since the labels show U.S. and Canadian parts, they can be a bit misleading if you're looking strictly for U.S. content. They also average the numbers across an entire model line, so they could be skewed by a trim level with especially high or low content.

The most popular U.S.-built cars and trucks, the models with the highest domestic content ratings come from Detroit automakers.

43 percent of GM, Ford and Chrysler contenders had domestic content ratings of 75 percent or higher. In comparison, just 25 percent of the Nissan, Honda, Hyundai and Toyota models on the list achieved that.

Oh so Toyota admits they make throw away trucks?

As for the spark plug issue of forest what percentage of f150s had the isssue?

Even if 0.01% of F150s had an issue it would seem like a lot. Since well its been the best selling vehicle in the world for like a decade.

Whatever you are obviously a Toyota nutthanger, that has no clue what he is talking about since you don't even bring up the GOOD truck Toyota makes and most agree lead in their class, the tacoma. You keep defending the tundra, lol....

I can't even quote that last post cause the horrible spelling and grammar is hurting my eyes so badly.. but one model??? Not quite.. the "most american made" midsize sedan... Toyota camry... Minivan.. toyota sienia... Your oversimplification regarding "where the $$$" goes is even more elementary and dead wrong than your spellings of simple, two syllable words like "follow" and "foreign"..
