The Freep article cited by the OP was accompanied by a related link on the role of the Focus and the Fusion in boosting Ford's recent car sales: http://freep.com/article/20090816/BU...ar+sales+gains

Toyota's build quality seems to be going downhill, while their prices are going uphill, and their level of excitement is flatlining. Toyota either offers cars/trucks that are as boring as watching paint dry, or offer waaaay over-the-top designs. They dont offer anything that is remotely sporty nor good looking, IMO. Toyota's dying breath was drawn when they killed off the GT-S Celica. Now they offer bland Camrys, hideously fugly xD, yawn-me-to-death Corollas, kill-me-now Siennas, rip-out-my-teeth-with-a-soup-spoon Prius, etc, etc. Toyotas may be about as reliable as cars can get, but CMON!!! Design something for people that are under the age of 95!!!!!
