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. 

  • 65 percent of respondents thought Toyota’s problems are only temporary and believe they still manufacture quality cars.
  • 12 percent said they may buy a Toyota in the future, but not anytime soon.
  • 12 percent said they will never buy a Toyota, and they will never trust the company.
  • 9 percent were not aware of the issues with 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.

Toyota has demonstrated crass, morally bankrupt decision-making in its new LAME commercial ads. I would not buy a Toyota if it was the greenest vehicle on the planet, not if it laid golden eggs. Toyota executives are morally bankrupt and the USA should boycott the brand.

Just because Toyota has had a problem with one line doesn't mean that the whole company should be put under the microscope! I live in NJ and all of the http://www.1800autoland.com/ dealers I have vistited to buy a car after the recall were all very much aware of my concerns and coached me through the selection process. Toyota is a great car and I still feel very safe.
