I heard this early this morning. Toyota isn;t selling so well in the U.S. and Europe either.

And Honda is threatening moving their HQ to another country because Japan is not manipulating their currency enough to keep Honda profitable.

Nothing beats a Caddy. You can keep Toyota...

So would now be a good time to buy a Toyota Tacoma?

Now is the time to buy any car - especially a beast.:D

My next truck will be a Toyota Tacoma, so maybe in the Spring, I'll buy one.

I had a 1984 Toyota pickup that had over 300,000 miles on it. I sold it and 2 weeks later and the engine died. What a great truck!

^ Did you see the Top Gear episodes where they tried to destroy an old Hilux?

Built like tanks.

I've kinda been eyeing a Ridgeline. That trunk has me hooked.
