Recently, though, it was the spotlight of the media when an old bastard claimed his Toyota had acceleration problems and made a big deal. He purposefully was stepping on the acceleration pedal instead of the break. His motivation was because he was in debt and wanted to keep his Prius.
Most Toyota's that are sold in the United States are now manufactured in the United States, unlike Ford, GM, or Chrysler where they are manufactured in Canada or Mexico. Even Volkswagen has auto plants in the United States now.
2. Most likely any non-Honda car with over 300,000 on the odometer.
3. A vehicle with normally bland body styling, an underpowered engine, and weak acceleration that is easy on the wallet, and prettymuch indestructible.
4. A company known mostly for the Camry, that has a produced a few outstanding exceptions to itself. Namely the Celica Supra, and the Mid-Engined MR2.
5. Also sold under the Brand 'Lexus', and more recently 'Scion'.
Dad: When the engine finally dies.
Me: Let's see. The heater's broken, the trunk is rusted out, the odometer is nearly at 400,000, the radio is somewhere around a truck stop on Skykomish, and the exaust system is prettymuch useless. One day you're going to go outside, there will just be the engine sitting by it's lonely self in the driveway and it will STILL work.
During the 1980's the Toyota Camry was prettymuch a government issued car.
