So, my wife bought a minivan; a loaded Honda Odyssey with all the automated shit. Pretty cool, for a minivan. She's okay with me getting a new car, because the one I'm looking at will actually be cheaper monthly, and it gets better mileage than my box.
When I told a buddy at work about it, he freaked, saying "isn't that actually made in Japan? It could be loaded with radiation!"
Now, there's actually a shortage of them right now in the States because of what happened in Japan. However would the radiation issues really get into cars being made? It just doesn't sound like it would be an issue; after all, a ton of stuff is made in Japan, and I haven't yet heard this concern raised.
What do you guys think?
I know it may sound self-centered, me worrying about a car, given all that happened over there. But I would be driving my two kids occasionally, and I wouldn't want to risk their health.
Only thing I would worry about is supposedly the TC is the crap model of the Scion lineup with 99% of the problems lol.
