3. on Toyotas...
What is the coolest thing about Toyota? They may not be the coolest-looking cars but they are reliable and inexpensive to drive, they say. At least, until they need fixing.

Yeah, they might not be the cheapest to fix...but they need to be fixed less than most.

I have a 20-year-old Toyota Corolla, and a 7-year-old Hyundai, and they need about the same amount of repair...which is pretty darn good considering the age of the Toyota...and makes me want to never buy anything but a Toyota ever again.
