Last year my trusted, will never die, will run for ever, will cross 300,000 miles, will do cart wheels Honda Accord finally showed its age. After many days of research I finally decided I wanted to get a new Toyota Corolla. For the first year, I had zero complaints, however in the last two months, an onboard computer chip had to get replaced and now my center case latch needs to get replaced. None of the replacement parts cost me anything since the car is still covered under a warranty but what’s more concerning is the fact that great brand name products fail. It’s even more annonying when now you can’t walk around recommending your purchase knowing that the same things may fail for others. In this case, word of mouth marketing is definitely not in Toyota’s favor.
