Michigan Tech Huskies Pep Band: There's No Use Trying To Talk. No Human Sound Can Stand Up To This. Loud Enough To Knock You Down.
Loved it, but as I'm getting older, realize just how dammed cramped, barebones, and uncomfortable it is. Need a bit more in the way of creature comforts.
Look to pick up a (relatively)low mileage 2012 sometime in the future.
Toyota's designs and build quality seems lightyears ahead. The Tacoma was my first Toyota and I'm sold on them as a company. It's been super reliable, seems well built, and just feels higher quality than an equivalent American vehicle.
where I live in Maine is like the standard "practical" vehicle, but I'm not all that impressed with the interior of ours (but it was pretty cheap).

I'm not impressed with the center console stack on Toyota's. I sat in a few of the 2018 redesigned Camry's, test drove one, and the center console feels straight out of 1989. Giant buttons and wasted space around it with large text to describe what the button is. Also, the steering wheel/dash does not accommodate my height and size well.
A shame really, because I loved the aggressive look of the Camry and the standard features (360 surround cameras) that GM had only begun to make standard in *Cadillac*.
Its a clean sweep. Consumer Reports top 20 reliable cars of the decade - none are American made.

Most those cars on the list actually are assembled in Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, or South Carolina, with non-union labor.
Also, it makes it fun to watch the forehead veins throb on stars-and-bars rednecks who support Trump 120% watch their shifts get cut when Trump imposes tariffs on these "imported" cars made in the US and their manufacturing jobs are slowed.

Total household net worth in the fourth quarter of 2018 dropped by the largest amount since the fourth quarter of 2008 when the country was amid a steep recession, according to data released Thursday by the Federal Reserve.Also known as "no sh*!," and when can we start publicly flogging the 1%? We can get to the next 9% later.The typical American household, however, may not feel much of a financial pinch as a result of the drop. For starters, stocks have since recovered much of their late 2018 losses, although they remain below the record highs set earlier in the year.
More important, most of the household wealth in the United States is owned by the country’s richest families. In 2016, for instance, the top 1 percent of families owned 40 percent of all household wealth, with the next 9 percent of families holding an additional 39 percent. That leaves 21 percent of the country’s net worth for the remaining 90 percent of American families.
Furthermore, about half of American families don’t own any stocks, while the top 10 percent of families control about 84 percent of the stock market.
Taken together, the numbers are a reminder that the stock market is not the economy, and that big national-level data sets may not necessarily reflect financial reality for typical American families, many of whom live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to meet even small unexpected expenses.
