    I have owned several Toyota cars all trouble free. Sadly the same cannot be said of their trucks. The decent thing to do is cease all truck production. The Tacoma had the rusting frame issue, the Tundra is a nightmare to work on and recently I discovered my 4th gen 4runner requires removal of the rear axle to replace the parking brake. Surely even Toyota must have realized wear items should be easily serviceable. Apparently Toyota engineers did not get that memo.

    And not to take the thread in an entirely different direction but this weekend I finally needed and used the onboard GPS to get somewhere. Same thing a bit disappointed. It did get me where I was going but on the way I did make one wrong turn and it didn't state "recalculating" to let me know it just kept speaking and sent me through that serious of turns over again. I did get there the second time around but when it doesn't alert you it can potentially be difficult to know where you messed up specially in confusing city traffic. I mean it will get you where you're going but I have used others I like more even the cell phone's better in my opinion.
