    Toyota still #1 in my book.

    It is not just the number of vehicles recalled but how Toyota dismissed all attempts to identify the problem dating back to 2002. They covertly sank 4 NHTSA investigations, their dealers consistently told owners there was no problem (the Texas woman whose husband died with 3 others brought her car to the dealer 3 times! The corporation deflected criticism stating the problem was 1) drivers 2) floor mats 3) brake pedals and they STILL have avoided the true source, electronics. They have been covering up for almost a decade now.

    I have a 2007 Tacoma.
    Vehicle is a piece of junk has been from day 1.
    I have always bought Toyotas for over 25 years.
    After the way I have been treated by the dealer and Toyota about it's many major issues I will NEVER buy another one.
    It is one thing to build the occasional lemon it is another to
    screw the poor schmo who got stuck with it.

    I'll continue to drive GM products until I get less than 400,000km in one before powertrain repairs. It's always been about reliability and replacement part availability/cost for me. After looking around, I always end up back at GM. Perspective: I don't buy compacts and I don't buy luxury. Mid-lux or bust, lol.
