3 Reasons to Buy Toyota Now

Toyota (NYSE: TM  ) is a company that's faced a ton of trouble in recent years. The recall scandals of 2010 had barely begun to fade when the tsunami in March 2011 devastated the company's key suppliers, slowing worldwide production for months and costing it thousands of sales.

But Toyota appears to have successfully accomplished that rare thing: learning good lessons from hard experience. In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear looks at where Toyota is now -- and gives three good reasons to consider hopping on the Japanese giant's express.

    The author of this article must have been paid by Toyota. GM and Ford are making great cars, like cruze, focus, fusion and the list goes on. It is time to buy US to strengthen our economy. I was duped by pundit who claimed Toyota car have the highest index in parts and labor made in America but it is a lie. Just like Samsung using pundits to put down other brands in Taiwan to gain market share. They are also mounting an all out war to destroy our industries even though they are bunch of copy cats to started of with. Those Americans who buy their products are fool because they are just bringing their own standards of living down.

    @yaovk: "Paid by Toyota"? Not a chance. Nobody at the Fool (and not many people anywhere else in the media) was on the story of Ford and GM's turnarounds earlier than I was. I own both Ford and GM stock and have for a while. But it is also true that Toyota has rebounded unusually well from its troubles, and I have been impressed by that.

    Click that link up at the top next to my name that says "More Articles" and you'll see lots of good stuff on both Ford and GM.

    Thanks for reading.

    Toyota has not turned it around. After Toyota has recalled the most vehicles in 3 of the past 4 years in the USA, Toyota has recalled the most vehicles in 2013 so far with around 2 million vehicles recalled........ In 2011 they were 2nd behind Honda.

    What happened to your love affair with GM? The reason it's good to buy Toyota right now is because Japan is manipulating. The information you provide in your video isn't accurate. Did you even check sales numbers and fuel economy stats of Toyota sales versus Ford?
