    Toyota has done a lot and they have a vehicle for almost everything. Despite all the recall’s and all the issues that went on this year and last year with Toyota, they still have proven to be a a top notch brand and for that I think they deserve this recognition.

    I recommend anyone to buy Toyota! Toyota FTW!
