As you are the proud long-time owner of a Toyota vehicle, recent news about Toyota's recalls must be disheartening. However, we feel the media is taking this out of proportion. What's done is done and now Toyota is all about correcting the issues and restoring public trust. We would like to continue supporting Toyota, as always, by what we do.
Here is a great article for you to read about the recall issue. We are glad not all media is trying to jump on Toyota.

Thanks and see you at the Queen Mary in May!

I completely agree. And no one seems to be looking at the fact that, as well as Toyota, many companies are having mass recall (Honda, Ford). But because everyone knows Toyota is the best and its Japanese, the media and government have chose to pick at it. Isn't it funny, maybe that's because the government owns a large chunk of GM and if they make the LEADER in car sales look bad they think that everyone will in turn buy a GM product.
A visit to any auto wrecking yard will reveal the average Japanese car on the lot is substantially older and has many more miles on the odometer - typically between 150,000 - 350,000 miles vs 80,000 - 175,000 for the American vehicles.
Only short term reliability has improved in American cars. Long term they don't hold up. And because they depreciate in value so fast, their owners can't justify the expensive repairs needed to keep them on the road, hence they end up in wrecking yards when only 5-10 years old.

lol....recall? so what......nobodys perfect. I been driving toyotas for a while as well as some other imports, toyotas the best and have a proven track record. American cars only used to last about 5 years then repair time....it was fix or repair daily, or found on road dead. lol. You have to drive Toyota's to know for yourself. Everybody should know not to believe anything the media says... Toyota #1!!!!!!!!!!!!
