    I went to a Toyota dealership to day and I noticed that they had 8 used d/c trucks and 5 used a/c trucks all with under 18,000 miles on them for sale.They were all 2007-2009 trucks. I asked the guy on the lot why so many and he said most of them were repo's and a couple were just turned in w/the keys because they could not afford them. He took me to the back lat where their is a single yard enclosed by bob wired fencing. They had 7 more trucks back their as well. I'm sure am glad I paid off my truck 2 years ago.

    I was reading in the paper yesterday that Toyota published its 1st net loss in 50 years. They also had to ask their government to barrow 2 billion dollars. They had a 40% decline in sales. I think you would have the upper hand in negotiations right now. I'm going to wait untill the 2010's come out and get a good deal on a 2009 thats been left on the lot.

    That's why Japan was in a decade long recession in the 1990's because they kept bailing out companies in trouble and here they are doing it again. Prepare for the worst because that's absolutely what's happening here, too.
