        As we've all been hearing about the legal issues and mechanical problems they've had happen recently, do you trust them??

        Personally I don't. Simply because they denied this problem for more then 2 years (It could be as long as 4 or more) and there's been enough of a question of the "Computer" in the car which may be the true fault.

        Of course, Toyota blamed car mats (Possible) and then a "Sticky" gas pedal. But now more is coming out that it's the "Brain" in the car which is causing the problems.

        Not that I "Could" even afford to buy one of their cars to be honest, but I have a preference for liking cars by GM mainly. Well, except for vans, like them, but they are a PITA to work on.

        I owned a 1981 Toyota celica Hatchback, i owned it in 1991 bought from the original owner who worked as a car salesman, the toyota had a brand new motor in it, and a few other things long ago i don't remember all that was new about it.

        Love this car took me everywhere, never broke down on me, i replaced the clutch once, and new brakes of course, always got compliments on it being it's age and how well it ran from mechanics when i would do the tune-ups..

        But i did notice a little bit that it was sluggish, not bad, just slightly.. i took it in to see about it come to find out it had a crack in the manafold, i was like OMG thats gonna cost a bundle.. the mechanic added, "i had better get this fixed right away it was not healthy, fumes can make you sick".
        Went home and called around several places trying to get estimates, and.. yuck they were outrageous. I called one mechanic, and explained got into a discussion about the money, barely being able to afford it, he got quiet, then said.. "i'm not supposed to tell you this but there was a re-call on your toyota, that the manafolds and exhaust being installed were faulty" he said take your car to a toyota dealer.. they will fix it for free, and low and behold i got $2,000 worth of work done on it for free. They took my car in fixed it no questions asked.

        Meantime.. i remembered back when i would take these long drives with my daughter when i got home, i would have these terrible headaches and i felt.. grouchy and mean.. i would say.. this is not me being like this! It was those fumes and i can only imagine with my daughter so young that she couldn't tell me anything was wrong with her.. makes me sick

        I would have never known about this recall...

        Sure Toyota may have some problems.  But, in total, probably less than GM or Ford. 

        PLUS!  Now there is a popular excuse.  If you had a wreck or speeding ticket while driving a Toyota.....Hey!  Not my fault!

        Well, GM and Ford has been around for over 100 years? Something like that..Toyota is not as old.. so yes Toyota will be less, but so drastic are their faults and so many within a short time, makes me think they are just not caring... it's human lives
