It wasn't that bad of a car, but it most certainly wasn't "turn of the century" Toyota quality so I decided to get rid of it while the resale value was high and I wasn't upside-down on it.

I don't have any Toyotas now. In the past, I was willing to put up with Toyotas boring as sin vanilla cars becaue I knew they were built to a very high quality standard vs the competition, but now that Toyota quality is no better than the competition, it just isn't worth it anymore.
Buy a Volt, then

As I mentioned before, common sense will dictate that you inspect the car before you buy.

Otherwise, nice looking rig.
Well, if the warranty has been extended to 15 years, then there is no need to worry about it.

I never thought they were anything special or that great in the first place.

You call that a pick up truck?

Hahaha

One can find faults with just about any vehicle regardless of brand or model. While it's difficult to predict reliability, the least one can do is drive-test it and perform a visual inspection. If one finds problems with the fit and finish of a vehicle, it makes no sense to drive that one out of the lot.

I stand by my earlier assessment.

The Toyota forums have many complaints about the latest version of the Camry.

No matter how bad Toyota gets, they can never seep into the depths of Dodge...
