Its a shame that Toyota blew their chance (again) at building a full size truck for the American market that Americans would love. I can still recall the disappointment when I test drove my first one a year ago...prepared to trade then walking away disgusted. I love the way companies and salesmen brag on engineering. It was obvious to me that many people dropped the ball. Here is an idea...before a company builds something new, why not as people who have similar products what it would take for them to trade. I could have told them exactly what my chevys, fords and gmcs needed to make them better vehicles. Its one thing to be the first product out in the market but when you have so many to products to cherry pick from, there really is no excuse for not building somthing that people will enthusiastically embrace...unless your ego gets in the way:-)

Gas is below $1.99 Lets all buy a truck truck sales should surge now gas is lower. Need to get those loans out there

Laughable, Toyota blew exactly what? They're not asking for a bailout from there Government, as the American car makers are, as bad as the economy is, a smart person will make a quality purchase rather then purchase an inferior product. People purchase vehicles these days with quality in mind, who knows if, or when they'll be able to purchase another. They purchase vehicles that are reliable and will retain a higher resale value over the years. The name Toyota is synonymous with quality, American car makers should have kept that in mind in the 70's, 80's and 90's when they were manufacturing an inferior product, then perhaps they wouldn't be in the predicament they're in now, they lost countless American car buyers during these decades, including myself.


Dan go drive your car to the unemploymet line.My 2004 Dakota has 90k and no problems.inferior... i will go against any toyota product.
