Yes I have seen the movie
Yes I have seen the movie but it’s not totally clear who is at fault. I am blaming chevron as they made the law that cars that use that battery type NIMH have to be hybrid. They hold the patients on that battery technology.
What I fell was bad that GM crushed the EV1 however I don’t hold that against them at all and the management that was in place 10 years ago is not the same that was there 20 years ago or here currently.
Also when you are buying American it’s not where the car is made or the parts are made it’s where the profits are going back to jobs that support YOUR income.
Why is our current economy doing so poorly. Look around at Prius drivers!
American manufacturing is one component. The others are education, research and investing in your son or daughters future.
When you buy American the profits stay right here in the USA where we can keep engineering jobs, management jobs and finance jobs that are totally not related to manufacturing.
Toyota saying that 50% of the parts from the new camery are from the US is a wash of what is important.
So what you are esuriently saying is that to turn the USA into a manufacturing plant with out anyone thinking or any money being re-invested into out intellectual property, patients or future engineering knowledge base is not important?
Come on people buying a foreign car is about as anti- American as you can get and the story its built in the USA just does not cut it.
Toyota PR, Adverts and other people have done a great job covering up the fact that they are taking your money and they are getting richer off of you. This country is not. Look at our current situation and that will show if we keep buying China toys, cars made or owned from overseas and stop investing in our oun country we will be in very serious trouble.
American is better In my opinion Again
I have had much better luck with American cars in respect with them lasting longer and being safer and spending a lot less for body repairs.
I recently was in an auto accident with my ford explorer and it hit a Toyota camery.
The Toyota camery crumbled and was totaled and my ford didnít have really too much other than a scratch.
If you buy a Toyota remember one thing itís a disposable car. If you get in any type of accident small or large the car will be totaled.
I rented a Prius recently and the metal was so cheap on it I could push the hood down with my hand.
I am sorry the Prius is very anti-American. It makes me sick to see our country by so many foreign products.
Prius people from what I have seen leave there lights on in there homes and donít even by compact fluorescents.
You would be much better off keeping your old SAFE car. Investing in solar power, wind power and other taking public transportation and working on your leaks in your house to safe your heating bill.
A CA Exec recently was pulled over going 100MPH in his prius and this is terrible, the car does not save you a cent at this speed on top of this if you wreck you will be dead in a second.
My money will go towards American owned companies that make efficient vehicles.
My life is important and if I am dead the extra air quality wonít help me 6 feet under.
From my research Toyota customers are extremely upset with the Lexus SUV hybrid. Toyota lied about the fuel mileage.
They also lied about the Prius.
Basically I really feel the Prius is a PR stunt and people were lied too. They large trucks Toyota sells are in the same showrooms that guzzle gas and they are unsafe as well
The new Ford Trucks are all 5 stars the Toyota could not even get 4 and on top of that JD power just rated
Buick better than Lexus and Lexus is Toyotas best brand.
Ford also beat Toyota in quality
So again you are buying foreign because itís foreign and itís really anti-American.
Look at the JD ratings they will show you that American cars are really better!
