    Everyone is searching for the magical pond with the water that makes you live forever. Kinda where your weird coworker is going. In theory a great-working and reliable Toyota, when maintained regularly and driven properly, could last 1 million miles. So it goes for almost ANY car if it's looked after. I saw a few 2 year lease-return Mazdas at the Mitsu dealer, and they were pretty swiss cheese before the mold, rusted underneath. Real lookers though! Get that kind of car Krowned. or oil drip based spray to preserve these Japanese cars.

    Too bad about your coworker. Sounds like there's lots of free time on hand at that job.

    I wouldn't want to leave a job I like over a personality conflict.

    If you truly ignored him, this thread wouldn't keep going.

    Many people have a brand loyalty to vehicles. My 80 year old dad is one of those. I have never owned the brand my dad likes, & we still co-exist. I've never heard him question anything that I own. He's better about that than I am.

    People who like different brands of vehicles can co-exist in the world. If this is a huge issue for someone, they should feel blessed that their life is so simple & easy. I sincerely mean that!

    Then let me hear what you would do in my situation: you try to ignore the guy but everyday he comes over to you and won't leave you alone...you go to HR but it doesn't stop, do you switch departments? Do you punch him in the nose?
    lf you think two different people can co-exist then you're mistaken...you haven't met my co-worker.

    I went back & re-read your post (#50 in this thread). You seem to devote a lot of time & energy to all this. I'm sure this co-worker feeds off that. Just an observation.

    If someone loves Toyota, Honda, or some other brand, I don't lose sleep over that. Why would I care what someone else thinks about a car brand?

    I don't think this co-worker would bother me in the least. I'm not saying that I would become his best friend.

    If his conversations warrant talking to HR on Monday, I am not speaking against that. No one should be harassed in the workplace. People with strong opinions are hard to be around, & that goes beyond cars. I do sympathize about that. I hope this works out for you!
