There's an oxymoron in the Swaim household.
Mark doesn't like unions
Doris doesn't like foreign cars
you both drive domestic cars
Doris works for a Toyota dealer
Somebody please get me a drink
Bob, you will have plenty to drink when you get here, and I did own a Jag, and to be honest, I would drive a Aston Martin in a heartbeat. People in the car business go where the money is, and right now, its not the domestics. The Ford store next to us does about 30 cars a month (down from 150+ when I worked there), the Cadillac/Chevy store down the street is the same way. Like anyone else in the work force, you go where the money is.
I have no problem with unions, but they need to understand, just like everyone else, things can't always stay the same, if they want to continue to have jobs, they may have to give a little, or maybe even a lot, and quality control says it all. In a 12 month time period at a Ford store where I worked, we would see from 6 to 10 vehichles returned under the Lemon Law, and you know we did Lemon Law our 04 XLR, and I have had problems with my 07. I have been with Toyota for over 2 years, and have not seen a single Lemon Law vehicle.
