"GM had been No. 1 for seven decades before losing that title to Toyota in 2008."

And Toyota has got all the imaginable KARMA that they could get with it!

Rather than pursuing numbers, we try to sell one car at a time, producing good cars. We aren’t focused on being No. 1

I can think of soooo many companies that would benefit from adopting this kind of attitude.

Guess all those "lost" sales in communist china didn't mean squat after all - although I'm sure many local communist dealers and manufacturers lost their shirts. Isn't that a shame.

I'm hoping to be a Toyota owner once I've passed my driving test... ^_^

Toyota makes definitely outstanding quality car. However I believe they could do a bit better on the design side, even though on the Lexus. Nothing wrong but just sharing a personal thought.

Toyota has been a company with quality in their hardware, nobody can deny it. Reliability has been their pineacle. I remember back when a Mechanic says that when a Timing Belt breakes, all but toyota could suffer from a valve breake. I had an old Landcruiser with the 14B engine, I remember back when I was driving without water in the engine(a 180k miles, 20yo SUV) and could still go forth. Sadly It was stolen.
