    Toyota finds a marginality and voluntarily recalls the cars to fix it.
    No big deal. Ford had a massive problem with engine control modules and
    fought against a recall for years. It finally took a California court
    going against them to get Ford to do the right thing.

    Every company is going to have some problems get out there. The
    question is, does the company stand up and deal with the problem or do
    they rope-a-dope their customers?

    I am still waiting for the GM 3.4 L intake manifold gasket repair recall!

    Sort of reminds me of the Toyota sludge recall - oh wait, the Sludge
    Customer Satisfaction Program. I am still waitign for Toyota to fix the
    paint on the sorry Cressida we owned (the worse POS I ever owned). Or maybe
    you are thinking of the Toyota V-6 head gasket fiasco. Or maybe you are
    thinking of how Toyota had to dragged kicking and screaming by NHTSA into
    recalling cerain trucks to address the high rate of ball joint failures for
    certain models. When you have some time go to the NHTSA web site and review
    the documents. It is hilarious. First Toyota claimed there was not a
    problem. Then the claimed it was the suppliers fault. Then they stalled for
    months. Finally they admitted there was a problem and did the right thing
    after a couple of years.....

    At least with Ford you can get an inkling of the potential problems by
    reviewing the titles of the various TSBs. Most of the Japanese manufacturers
    are restricting access to this information. I recently purchased a Nissan
    Frontier. After I purchased the vehicle, I got a recall notice. Never saw
    the recall mentioned anywhere. Then I started checking and after I paid for
    access to the Nissan information service, I found that my 2006 vehicle
    already had over 50 TSB again it. 50!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for a 2006 vehicle. So I
    started poking around and found out both Toyota and Honda are pulling the
    same stunt. I suppose they are hoping if you don't know there is a fault in
    the design you might not notice the problem.

    I had a 1997 Ford Expedtion with the 5.4L engine. There were lots of
    complains about this engine having piston slap problems. Heck, there were
    even web pages where you could download the sound. I heard a couple myself.
    Ford said it wasn't a problem, but it worried a lot of people to death and
    eventually Ford replaced a lot of engines to keep Customers happy. So last
    year when I was looking for a new Pick-up Truck I spent a lot of time
    looking at Tundras. I test drove three. All three sounded like rock crushers
    when they were first started. They were all far worse than any 5.4L
    Expedition I have ever heard. I commented on this to the various sales
    people. They all said the nosie was completely normal and not to worry about
    it. And just like the Fords, as soon as the engine warmed up slightly, the
    noise went away. So it appears to me there are double standards out there -
    Toyota crap is OK (especially if you don't know it is crap) and Ford or GM
    crap really stinks.

    You mean like Toyota does? See comments about V-6 Engines and Ball
    Joints.....

    When has Toyota ever had a voluntary recall for a "marginality" ?
    Seems it has to be a saftey problem before they will recall anything.

    I think you missed a couple "Toyotas" there.

    But when you figure, Toyota makes almost as many cars as GM, and sells
    them all over the world, and the last 'recall' I had on a '95 Tercel was
    to replace a screw holding the antenna to the car so AM radio would work,
    I think I'll stick with Toyota for a while longer...

    .....and NOT ONE documented to have had the factory recommended oil
    changes....

    Just because we drive the best cars in the world does not make all of
    us smart enough to change the oil...
