    You gotta love Toyota.

    They had to get into Nascar.

    They pretend to be an American made car.

    And the best one is, they don't even make a car that has a v8 in it.

    France jr, you are a moron.

    Toyota quality has improved since Akio Toyoda took the helm in 2010. So that alone assures Toyota sales will be good. Reliablility, durability and affordability have been and always will be the most important factors that enables a car company to dominate the market. So far from Toyota being a risky stock, it's a risk free stock. But autos are not a growth industry at the moment. Housing is. Housing stocks will still go up another 50% during the coming year though you should be sure to put a stop loss order on them in case Obama launches WW III or in case California has a 8.5 earthquake and Japan like tsunami.
