Toyotas are not bad cars.
For people looking for an inexpensive, reliable car, its a perfect choice. I know a guy (I always make fun of him) who owns a '99 I4 4Runner (yes, they used to make em with 4 cylinders) and some old Toyota Camry. He could easily afford a 3,5,6 or 7 series, but he doesn't feel that its worth the money. For getting from point A to point B, its perfectly adequate.
