    Well it would depend. If i won the lottery yes, I would probably buy a Mercedes, Lexus, or BMW. But I doubt that will happen so yes I'm sure I will always have a Toyota. My family has owned them for years and I cant image driving anything else.

    I don't think I'd ever buy any other brand of truck but as far as cars go there are numerous companies I'd consider buying from.

    i've owned toyotas, hondas, nissans, mitsubishis....all are equally good cars that last 300k miles + if you change the oil regularly and such....the others tend to have problems...meaning ford, chevy, dodge...there are acceptions but you have alot better chance of avoiding problems with japanese cars...at least that is what i've seen in my life

    I'd never buy a Toyota car. As far as trucks I do love the Tacoma and Tundra but Nissans are close behind. As much as I love being an American, as much as I can preach the Constitution and argue any liberal my second amendment rights, I just couldn't buy American vehicles. That goes for motorcycles too...I hate Harley's (and that says a lot being a Wisconsin native), I stick to the Brits for my bikes.

    Only Toyota's SUVs and Trucks. I don't care for Toyota's cars. I'd take an Accord over a Camry, a Civic over a TC/Corolla, Fit over a Yaris/XB/XD. Toyota makes boring cars though the FT86 looks a little promising.

    I love Toyota but it depends on what I was buying, I woud take a Tacoma or Tundra over any midsize size truck hower I would take an Accord over a Camry if I were in the market for a car.

    Agreed. So far, of all the cars/trucks I have had, the Toyota has been the best trucks, and the Honda has been the best cars.
