Are Toyota drivers the new Volvo drivers?
I ask this because when I first started driving in 2001 Volvo drivers were easily the worst drivers on the road.
Not very fond of their indicators but very fond of their fog lights I found Volvo drivers to be the most inpatient, annoying drivers on the road.
These days though I find myself grinding my teeth at the sheer stupidity of Toyota drivers.
What has changed?
Firstly, Volvo as a car company have managed something extraordinary; transforming themselves from a company that makes cars that are considered whistling lunch-boxes to cars that have an alternative Swedish feel with a bit of sex appeal thrown in.
Secondly, every man and his dog who knows nothing about cars or driving seems to buy a Toyota now. That is why these days you will see a Toyota parked across three disabled bays and not a Volvo.
So if you are a considering buying a Toyota I ask you to consider one thing……..
Maybe you are better off catching public transport? For the safety of everyone.
