Unhappy Car Buyer Gets 110,000 Views on YouTube - Mossy Toyota Complaint Video

I was browsing through the website of a prominent dealer-chasing law firm this morning (I know, I have weird hobbies), and came across a posting about a dealer with a link to a YouTube video. This dealership is part of a good-sized group that is very well-regarded in the area. As I am personally acquainted with this dealer group, I can attest to their integrity and dedication to customer satisfaction. So, when I clicked on the YouTube link, I expected to see another unconvincing customer with a… Continue

My Dad Still Driving at 85 - Happy Father's Day!

My Dad is still driving at 85 years old and is one of the big reasons I love cars! My Dad did not own a car at all until he was he was 33 years old. Owning a car was a luxury item for a post WWII blue collar family man in the 1950's, he car-pooled to work for years. His first car was a new 1956 Chevy (pictured on left), bought the year after I was born, (HEY.. how did they get me home from the hospital?). Already a father of four girls, including me,… Continue

On the Demise of Saturn

I recently read an industry analysis written by Mark Scheiner on the demise of Saturn, now a brand in a huge state of flux within GM. In short he stated that it was a GM opportunity gone wrong. He stated, “The lesson here is that brands whether, they’re products or branding, need time to seed themselves. These are long-term investments in both capital and marketing with branding efforts surrounding them. Most importantly, the messaging needs to remain consistent across all channels, and… Continue

A December To Remember? For A Lot Of Reasons

No matter how tightly or loosely your association with the automotive industry, this is a month of reckoning for so many reasons. But most are still in 'wait and see mode'. That just flat out can't be comfortable and it's not right, so why is it done? If you'd had the proverbial crystal ball, what would you have done months ago (if not years)?



It is interesting to hear about some level of negative consumer sentiment or backlash about the Toyota 0% advertising. When was the last time… Continue
