Kind of watering down the term Patriots. Kind of like when Justin Bieber calls himself an artist.

Actually Toyota employs more Americans than GM, Ford, or Fiat/Chrysler does. Designed here, built here, sold here.

That is 100% BULL$HIT! GM employs about 77,000 Americans, Ford about 65,000 and Chrysler/Fiat about 39,000.

toyota employs about 30,000, honda 26,000 and nissan 10,000.

You jap defenders that feel you have to defend your Traitorous actions look more and more stupid every day.

Any Toyota's VIN that starts with a "J" is built in Japan. I just bought my first foreign car ever and it is a 2007 FJ Curiser, (all FJ cruisers are built in Japan). I replaced an 2003 Escape with 255,000 + miles on it and still going strong. I leased my wife a 2014 JKU in Nov and she loves it. I had a 1996 ZJ and it had it's moments with only 195,000 miles on it so I got rid of it. I dropped down to 1 vehicle for me and 1 for the wife. Along with my toy that is only driven in the summer on clear days.

A 5 minute video just walking around and starting a vehicle makes me suspicions. The frame, drive line, suspension and who know what else has to have been altered to use a 350 and a solid axle swap. Unless I was very mechanically competent I wouldn’t want that Toyota. Toyota has a great reputation, so does the Chevy 350, but that doesn't mean that they are set up right.

I have a wrangler and I like it, I also have a 4Runner that I like much much better than the Grand I had.

The two vehicles you mention are not comparable.

What is it that you are wanting the vehicle for?

That's seriously impressive, thing is I rarely see (notice?) echos near me..everyone is infatuated with teh damn prius...

I'm always looking for beater DD cars that get great mileage so I don't have to put needless miles on my jeep, the echo just jumped towards the top of the list

It will have to wait til the '95 camry with 200,000 and 30+mpg that I got for $700 craps the bed though
