What Do You Think of Toyota Now?

Recently, we asked visitors to our website what they think of Toyota in the wake of the automaker's recall problems.

For background (if you haven't heard), last September Toyota recalled 4.2 million cars because floor mats could cause the accelerator pedal to stick. Then in January, another 2.3 million cars were recalled for sticky accelerator pedals. Just a few days later, they amended the floor mat recall to include an additional 1 million cars. The recall included more than 8 million vehicles total. 

A majority of those who voted in our poll still have a positive view of Toyota. 

The past few days of Congressional hearings about the recalls have revealed more information, including details that the original fixes may not totally correct the problems.

As more information becomes available, what do you think about Toyota now? Do you drive one of their recalled cars? If so, have you been able to get it fixed? Would you consider purchasing a Toyota in the future? Share your thoughts by posting a comment below.
