    Another Toyota recall. Soon there won't be any left on the roads at all.

    It would be better if they built them properly in the first place, but hindsight is 20/20 i guess

    Well thats a shame for Toyota corporate because of all the bad press they've had lately, but for a dealership more recalls = a chance for to prove to their customers how well they will take care of them and it also means alot more hours for the technicians. Our dealership has been extremely busy these past few months not only on the service side but also in new car sales as well, so even with all the bad press is hasnt seemed to have hurt us.

    The thing there is always going to be quality issues with any car, and especially so when your the #1 car company in the world in terms of total cars sold each year. When you are trying to keep up with the demand for new vehicles and you start getting into heavy mass production the quality will slip at least a little bit in certain areas. No car built today is perfect be it Ford, Honda, Chevrolet, Jaguar, you name it they all there quality issues in ceratain area's you just dont hear about alot of them though because they arent so publicised like Toyota.

    At the end of the day I would still chose a Toyota over many of the other vehicles currently sold in North America, although at the moment I think I will still stick with my Honda.

    great thing about the chimichanga is that it produces it's own gas.

    Toyota maybe under the microscope.....but personally, I like it when I push on the brakes and they work; when I turn the steering wheel, it steers.

    It all depends on the severity of the callback (Fight Club). Toyota's instance was related to deaths, of course, they're now blaming the drivers for deaths opposed to the recall problem.
