of course, when it rains it pours but even Toyota has forecasted that it won't happen overnight...their struggle is to make more RAV4s and Highlanders and less cars in general; go back to 2009-2011, SUVs could barely sell, and residuals then were at the bottom.

Even now, consumers' attitudes are different as well, as the smaller SUVs have found more favor, so I don't think they'll stop buying them. They've incrementally increased over the years, gas prices be damned.

It was funny MTV made sure to keep the mention of Toyota in the episode. I don't recall them doing that for any other car brand, though there was the running joke of another Teen Mom's Saturn breaking down at the wrong time (she has upgraded her wheels)

It is a recently shown episode, (last 2 weeks),if you have cable and want to watch, which they will repeat, often
Nope sorry don't have cable...must be nice zythr!

I did not watch the whole episode, EchoKnight2000. I happened to turn to it when Jave and Kaylin were leaving and she made mention of his new truck.

Just noticed Corey on the same show, Teen Mom 2, drives a Toyota Pick Up as well either a Tundra or Tacoma. He drove a Chevy Pick up before.
