RE: Maybe its time for a Toyota Death Watch?

A Toyota Death Watch exists on Facebook:

Those that don't learn from history, are doomed to repeat it. Contained within are articles and opinions that further expose the issues around Toyota.

Description:
A consolidated news source for Toyota Motor Corporation. This is a professional communications site to educate the public on the many issues associated with Toyota. Comments should remain professional.

All of our BMW critiques will be in vain when everything becomes an SUV. The sedan is a dying breed.

Bump this again when we're onto the tailgate design of the 2021 X7 M60i

I can only imagine that they are popping the champagne at Hyundai, Toyota and Honda headquarters. In the course of 2 years, all their American competition stopped. Easy sales!

It is too sad that cars are dying. I've complained for 20 years that no one is making a BMW 2002 anymore. Soon, I'll be complaining no one makes a Chevy Cavalier anymore...

It is not cars that are dying, it is traditional car makers that are dying.

The customers of the old fashioned behemoth GM want to buy old fashioned behemoths. so be it.

GM used to be a good place for designers coming out of school. The good ones moved on to other companies away from Detroit.

Cars are dying. It's interesting to note that Ford has made another big improvement in the Focus and Fiesta, but only for the ROTW, not Americaland. However, it's also of note that the Qashqai and the Tiguan are now in Europe's top 10 and every company with a Euro focus is working like made to get small crossovers out. It's only a question of time....

Moreover, who isn't a "traditional car maker"? Tesla, maybe? 99% of cars sold are from traditional makes as far as I can tell.
