I will never buy anything

I will never buy anything other than a Toyota, so IF I ever need repairs, I would go to the next closest dealership out-of-town!

inSCNow all you have to do is cross the river to Bob Richards Toyota, formerly Taylor Toyota to get your repairs. I hated those Augusta Toyota commericals too.

My first choice of a car for

My first choice of a car for everyone in my family is a Toyota. We have had issues with all our American made cars. Unfortunately, I haven't been in a position to buy since our last Toyota about 10 years ago. And it's still running fine. I hope there is still a Toyota dealership around when I'm ready to buy again. Reasonable prices, easy to maintain, easy to for good mechanics to repair. As a matter of fact, my mechanic drives one that is probably about 20 years old. If that's not a good example, I don't know what is.

I hate to see anyone having

I hate to see anyone having to declare bankruptcy but I am sure someone will pick up the pieces and continue to sell in the area. Some folks just will not set prices at a decent rate and this is the result, Bottom line who ever takes over should remember that we are in a recession and people can't afford the jacked up prices.

If you listen to the Mayor's

If you listen to the Mayor's commercials about how good the economy is in Augusta, no business should be having financial problems.

I'm a Ford guy......always have been, always will be. I have two now with over 200,000 on each and still run / look great! The UAW has done what they can to destroy the American auto industry, but I will ALWAYS buy American company products.......At least as long as there is one still in business! Oh wait.......Obama is going to save the world and every business in it.

You all sound quite certain

You all sound quite certain that you have no idea what caused American Business to go overseas. Between being unable to compete with $0.50 per hour labor costs and the highest Business Tax rates in the world, we're lucky we can buy anything Made In America. I hope they sub out the prostitution soon, these American Jobs are getting expensive!

LemonDrop - yeah, as long as he doesn't rehire the foul mouthed Sales Manager. He gave all Puerto Ricans a bad reputation.
