Toyota Recall list
« on: March 10, 2010, 09:47:53 PM »
I'm starting to worry.

Toyota vehicles not on the current recall list are running away.

DanG ,   We might be next.    :o

I can see the headlines.  Forklift going 94 MPH carrying an oak log.  Police can't stop it for fear of being forked in the trunk.

Understand Toyota is going to put a computer monitor in their cars. Then when you are hanging on to a run away car, you can watch the blue screen of death.

We have a 100% Japanese built Toyota Camry hybrid...I hate that car...the fit and finish suck, the design is lousy and the quality of the paint sucks...2007...the year the quality probs cropped up in the tokyo built cars...won't be buying another Toyota.

When is Woodmizer gonna make cars? I want a Gasmizer Hybrid (tm) one with the Biofuel option....how much does premium cedar sawdust run a pound?

  There is no such thing as an American car anymore. My Tundra is built in Princeton,Ind. 6% of parts are from overseas. The Ford F250, 16% parts are from overseas. Which one is more American? I'd say the Tundra is. That 16% figure is advertised by Ford on the window sticker! Toyota employs thousands in this country from manufacturing, shipping,sales and service. They pay darn good wages. The difference is their employees don't pay a pimp(Union Boss) for the right to work. I've been a Ford man my whole life. But, in light of what I've learned about the waste and inefficiency the UAW creates, I will not buy from them anymore.

 Me thinks that if I was going to buy a car the visual would be one of the first things that would be a factor in my decision.
 If the fit, finish and paint were so bad then I dont think I would buy it, nor would I complain about it after the fact. After all I saw it, drove it and it was my money that bought it and I drove it off the lot.
 I personally have never owned a Japanese car as I drive trucks, real trucks as in Ford, Chevy and Dodge. Full size with a full size box as it suits my needs for my business.
 My ex-wife always and still does drive Hondas and Camrys and to be honest with you shes never had a problem and the cars have always been dependable. If I was to buy a car it would be Japanese.
 My current wife drives GM cars and I personally have issues with them as they just dont have that strong dependable feel to them that I would like to see in a car.
 American vehicles had their time and place till the market got flooded with vehicles that were more economical to drive.

yah..I drive Harley's and a Dodge Cummins...

To all appearances, the Camry was a pretty good deal..the lack of quality in those ares did not become apparent until later..like when the passenger visor dropped into my lap going down the road, because of the crappy little clip that holds it in...and could not be fixed because the way the stupid thing is designed the metal in the roof frame is so thin it won't support the clip going back in...little crap like that are endemic with this car...

The one thing that I cannot complain about is the powertrain reliability..has been rock solid thus far, and the wife drives alot and goes hard...

She might go with a diesel Jetta next...

I am on my 3rd Dodge truck. (1999, 2004, and 2006) They are all 3/4 ton desiels. Two of them were made in Mexico and one in Canada. If you think of the big three as being American made, think again.

you can thank mostly NAFTA and CAFTA for most of the american parts being outsourced and the UAW does have many flaws but don't base all unions on the UAW.

He said UAW, none other in his statement. Maybe perhaps, "pimp union boss" can be misconstrued if someone wants to do so. But I'll come right out with it, I'm not a union backer, there. :D

You can thank unions for getting us ALL more than 50cents a day, 40 hour workweeks, and the weekend.  OH and workman's compensation, wether in a union or not.

There may be some examples of individuals have taken advantage of their union association, and even outright corruption, but overall unions have made things much better for all peoples who need to work for a living.

It was NOT the UAW that made the poor design decisions or decided to make SUV's when more efficient vehicles were what people wanted.

Maybe 40 years ago but not anymore. Tell me why in today's world a government employee needs to belong to a union.

Everything would have eventually worked itself out through human rights activism. Increasing wages as with unions creates distortion the way I see it, drives prices up where the less fortunate can not afford to buy the goods. Regulate a "floor" or minimum wage and a whole lot more people can afford stuff. I also believe the employer has rights to. He/she is the boss, knows what your worth and if they want to retain good talent they will pay for it. ;)

It's the UAW that insisted on programs like the "job banks" whereas employees sit around all day and get paid for producing absolutely nothing! Phooey! I will never spend a dime on an organization that practices that kind of stupidity and then expects the tax payer to bail them out. It's no wonder companies move out of this country.  Who wants to deal with those kind of insane demands and expect to turn a profit?  I'm so done with Unions! If it's Union made, I turn my back on it. It's time for the consumer and taxpayer to take a stand. There are enough labor laws on the books to prevent the abuse of an employee, which is what the Unions original intent was. The market will dictate the wages, not a Union or a Politician. I agree 100% with Logwalker. Government employees should be banned from Unionizing. It just costs us all in the long run. Besides, too many Gov. jobs produce nothing except more regulations,red tape and fraud.

I had a gov job for 6+ years, I worked 9 months without one day off, I worked 12+ hrs a day and I cleared 1198.00 a month doing it.   I was defending the rights & freedoms of ALL Americans here and abroad.   I took an oath  to uphold the Constitution against all enemies both Foreign and Domestic.  Even if that becomes the very government that is attempting to take those freedoms away... 

Granted that is just my opinion and has nothing to do with the people here at FF most of which may not agree with my personal thoughts towards where our government is heading.   

I have been in several unions as well.   Didnt care of any of them, I cared for the people in all of them though.   I was last one hired, and as such first one fired from 2 of them.   even though there were 7+ people on a shift and only 2 or 3 would do pretty much ALL of the work in essence carrying the 3 or 4 who did little to nothing.   Well they were the ones who always saw fit to file grievances against SOMEONE no matter if it was their own fault.   One guy was fired for whacking a co-worker in forehead with a rubber hammer during a fight.  Yep they both were fired & filled paperwork, 6 months later both were back W. Back Pay no less!  bs..

I also have several good acquaintances who were Ford & GM 40+ year people.   They would brag about who did less and I'm not talking about less per shift but nothing for weeks at a time...   

HOPE that the big 3 got plenty of concessions from the unions on what should be able to be done with the dead weight...
