Toyota cars have always seemed bland and uninteresting to an adventurous and auto racing-type personality like myself. Now that I'm hearing of all these things going wrong on the cars (e.g., http://jalopnik.com/5469487/toyotas-latest-problem-possessed-lexus-steering-wheels) I'm like, "so the cars aren't just boring, they're actually bad?! And the corporate bigwigs are that bad? I thought it was a good company, etc." In other words, I have no reason to support them. Ironically, I've been thinking about getting a hybrid lately, and it looks like the Chevy Volt is what it will be..
