The product and engineering is great. The vendors are the problem. The manufacturers of the electronics and such. But my tacoma had to have a gearbox, and a water pump and 2 release bearings now all before 60k. Toyotas are junk now too. They don't build anything like they used to.

my 01 GTI did have afew problems, but mainly from me driving the out of it. 250k with over 85k of that driving it as a work vehicle all day in town. Only issue i had was the comfort control module went out and the fuse box burned up. But that may have been from flooding it out during ike. But it still ran great and had stock clutch. Oh and that plastic pipe on the cooling system cracked. I would say overall a great car. All the problems were after 150k. Changed the timing belt so many times i can do it in my sleep lol

Tha being said with all the horror stories out there i will probably never own another one.

My Lexus IS300 it hit 280k miles on original timing belt before someone else wrecked/totaled it.Only thing it ever needed changed was ball joints once and rear main seal once.That car was unstoppable!

If Lexus (Toyota) bought Ducati they would never ever need maintenance....., but Ducati would also become the most beige, bland, and boring motorcycle ever made.

Made even more ironic said Italians are the ones bailing out the ailing Chrysler that even Dieter und Helmut couldn't fix.
