As I stand here chained to my post in my icy VW hell, I look out at no less than seven Toyotas being traded in.

Sheeple are so funny.

I'd rather risk driving the Toyota than ever own another water cooled VW product.

Maybe the dealer will give me a discount on buying out my wife's 07 Camry lease for a song...?

The next Audi/VW product I own will likely have a full warrantee. That said, it wont be for years.

Sheeple -- I've never heard that before, but I love it.

Ohyes.... sheeple are going to town. I'm seeing GM/Ford and the Koreans making out on this one. Thanks for being blind deaf and dumb toyota. You've made my day.

Nobody will make out on this - it will suck for everyone pretty much because Toyotas suppliers will have to raise prices on everyone else they do business with or lay off people.

REally? I didn't realize Toyota ruled the world.

Ever notice how a Camry or a Highlander in white looks like a sheep on wheels?

Think that was by accident?

Then if you see one in black, you think, "They're still a sheeple, but a bit of a rebel. The kind of person to show up to work with a new tattoo, that's temporary."

A Toyota may kill you, but a Volkswagen will make you want to kill yourself.

Just long enough to cause me to need a brostrom ankle reconstruction earlier this year causing me to miss the Challenge and waste a good portion of money on airline tickets.

I won't say I totally trust any car maufacture, but now I trust Toyota the least out of them all...

GM just announced special pricing for folks who are switching from their Toyota's.

DOG PILE!

I wouldn't be so quick to discount a company with such a stellar past, but their armor definitely has some gaps in it. Wasn't there a problem with structural rust in some of their trucks?

The Toyotas that I've had have been bulletproof, however.
