    It's amazing how a little sloppiness can take a giant down a peg or two. You hear too much inside talking that the brake problem was fairly common knowledge for dealers and factory reps and the like

    In two months my dads 1996 Toyota Tacoma basic shortbed truck with less then 70000 miles on it has dropped from 5000 private party value to 2900. I had checked it in early February and again in March. Toyota is GONE FOREVER!

    General Motors conducted himself the same manner in the 60's. But if you want Toyota aswering questions before congress, forget about it. Jay Rockefeller developed frendship with the Toyoda family during his early age and he is a member of transportation comity. Also, Toyota give thousand of jobs in america.

    It's amazing how a little sloppiness can take a giant down a peg or two. You hear too much inside talking that the brake problem was fairly common knowledge for dealers and factory reps and the like. A company has got to get on problems like this quickly or they become very big problems in the end.
    Good article,

    The most important of all these recalls is what if this pedal fix Isn't the only problem. If they continue to have sudden acceleration problems then they will really be in a mess

    I can't say that I feel bad for Toyota because this is just the consequence of the automaker's mistake in producing quality vehicles. It is natural that many consumers will avoid buying a vehicle produced by Toyota after the company has faced a number of recalls within the previous months.

    OK, that may be the first time I've heard someone explain Toyota sales using the terms "hip" and "cool".

  • TeaTime Posted: 2/9/2010 6:04am PST

    Toyota has always manufactured a cheap,ugly, crappy car. The only reason people bought them is to make themselves feel hip, cool and un-American.
    The TV campaign is really stupid and to Eric-no, I doubt this will, "undent," anytime soon.
    And to all the people who used US taxpayer money to buy a Toyota during cash for clunkers-good luck.

    in the market now for a prius- Ill see if this can help me with price...

  • Damien Thomas Posted: 2/8/2010 7:07pm PST

    I hope Toyota burns for this. The arrogance of the company to ignore such a crucial problem even after people died. And they are still acting so slow.

  • Kevin Kingship Posted: 2/8/2010 6:27pm PST

    Though this thing is all over the media, I have to wonder if it will really affect long-term value that much. Just as there's huge animosity toward U.S. companies for 20-30 of substandard cars, I think Toyota still has an owner pool who are pretty happy with their cars. But Tony's right; a lot of it depends on whether the company can clean up its PR act and the dealers can cope with all the recalls in reasonable time. Stay tuned ...

  • tony Posted: 2/8/2010 5:45pm PST

    Maybe 5 percent altogether? Ouch! What I'm wondering is how Toyota dealers are going to keep up with this recall thing, because their dealers were already so overloaded as it is.

  • Eric Berlin Posted: 2/8/2010 5:41pm PST

    Thinking that this will probably "undent" after a period of time ?

  • mme Posted: 2/8/2010 5:30pm PST

    This should even out the Craigslist playing field
