Default Work for Toyota now....

So I took a job a few months ago selling cars....Toyota'* to be specific, at a local dealership. Anyways, I've driven every Toyota they make and I still love my Bonneville and wouldn't trade it for any Toyota!!!! All the guys at work keep asking me when I'm going to buy a Toyota and I tell them I'm not going to buy one! My car is paid off and I love it (very few complaints).. I keep getting **** for owning a GM car but I still wouldn't get rid of it for even a Toyota Avalon at the price I can get it at! Am I crazy or not? Just looking for others' opinions who have driven Toyotas?

1. Avalon = ugly
2. Your car is paid for.
3. Toyotas break just like every other car, don't believe the commercials.

They definitely have their ugly years and their not so ugly years. Seems like they totally redesign those cars EVERY year or so!

Gotta love the Bonneville! 60K miles on mine and it hasn't seen the shop yet.

Man, the Toyotas are like every other car, your right.

I sold a Tundra 2 weeks ago that has problems already!!!


Granted I can sell Chevy'* too, but I was threatened today that I better sell more Toyota'* or else I'd be fired.....I GUESS WELCOME TO HELL IS CORRECT!!!!

I did preted to be interested in a toyota today and filled out a credit app. and I've got the credit to buy one, but **** that!!!!

My only compliant about the Pontiac and compliment of the Toyota'* is the brakes. I hate my Bonnevilles brakes, tires, and traction control. I love the Camry'*! Still not a good reason to buy a Camry and spend 19 grand!

I hope to not get fired, but I've been worried about that for a while.


Edit: I've got over 90,000 miles on my Bonne!!! A guy at work has a 98 LeSabre with the 3800 and about the same mileage and a really bad knock that I cought yesterday and just bought a Scion XB yesterday cuz of it.... It'* all in how good you take care of your car then, right?
