Other note. Toyota is pushing for number one car manufacturer as they are trying to produce more cars. Sales have been so high for Toyota, that they need to keep up!!!! Whew, Toyota. So good. But I want a Honda next because of the new Civic Si. Ooops, I can't now because I refinanced my stupid car!!!!

Yeah, Toyota is doing well. Personally I think it's mostly because of Scion. Their whole idea of cheap, reliable and endlessly modifiable cars for our generation has proven itself very well.

Lol yeah, Scion is nice.

Im loyal to Nissan.

Those cars and trucks are just freakin indestrucable. Imports so they are easily modded.

My Ford Focus is what I would consider reliable.
The only thing I had to repair so far is the alternator. It did go out a little prematurely ('02 model at around 45K) and it really sucked replacing it, but I saved money doing it myself. Other than that, I think if you treat a car right it will love you back. A lot of people just take really poor care of cars and expect them to work like a charm.

Ford's answer to gaining popularity - Quit crying about how making a serious import that would compete with the Mustang would lower its sales. Those are two completely different markets. Bring over the European 5-cyl turbo Focus ST.

Yeah, I know it's a Dodge Challenger. It's good to see Dodge stuck to it's roots instead of doing something stupid like with the Charger.
Exactly, they did a good job on the Challenger in being faithful to the original. I think it's the best done "throwback" design yet.
