#364 of 369 Toyota is still # 1

Inspite of the recent Toyota recalls-which are mass hysteria and stupidity- folks miss the point that Toyota still is making profits.Even if the recall costs 2 billion,Toyota can make up and the fact is Toyota cars are amongst the best out there. Lot of credit to Ford,but it still has a debt of $35 billion.. when will they overcome that and get in the black.. I dont know-very very tough.
And GM and Chrysler are gone cases . 80 billion in debt..How can they ever make up??Answer-Never. We are just prolonging their agony by giving them tax money with no hopes of returns.
The ratings in reality without any bias -based on profits,quality and dependability are :
I am not including luxury car makers here like Lexus/MB/Acura.
And the most over rated company out there is Nissan. Nissan is behind Mitsubishi in my opinion:shades:

My thinking is that all of the Big 6 have made most of their vehicles dull as dishwater now, with Toyota leading that trend. Ford is the only one with a bit of pizzazz, and even then it's not much, but I have hopes that they will fan that tiny spark in the next year or two.
As a car enthusiast I'm not much into profit margins because they don't make more desirable cars - the proof is in the pudding - check your local dealer's lot tomorrow if you want to see (doesn't matter which brand dealer you visit, among the Big 6).
I'm struggling to think of any automaker I would give much more than a C- to right now.....
On a sidenote, I'm going to have to start calling them the Big 6.5 or something, as Chrysler doesn't really qualify to be in the Big 6 any more, and Hyundai sort of does, just going by annual sales volume.

#368 of 369 Why is Chrysler Here? they suck
Mar 19, 2012 (12:56 pm)
1) GM (because of increasing reliability, wide range of options, and overall market cap)
2) Ford (also increasing reliability, well equipped fleet and well worth the price)
3) Toyota (very large company and decent convenience vehicles, but decreasing reliability)
100) Chrysler (why the hell are they on this list?)
