    Very professional of Toyota to shoulder the blame for a defect that was solely the responsibility of a part supplier that didn't build the part to spec.

    Respect :cool:

    lets not forget that they are still denying claims for the truck frames that rot away in a matter of months, or the ongoing problems with their 5.7ltr engine, problems with the seat belts in other models, etc. Toyota is just like any other large automaker that is trying to play the game of cutting their losses while saving some face.

    and exactly how do you know it wasn't built to toyota's spec? if so, why didn't toyota's engineers detect the anomoly and reject the defective parts? vehicle is sold under toyota's badge therefore they are 100% responsible to ensure machine tolerances, compliance, and safety (just like everyone else).

    and all of us that make joke about it or whatever are not all of a sudden toyota haters..they make some good vehicles. though i would never buy anything from them besides a taco/4runner doesn't mean i respect them any less...even after the recall. Its just funny because many toyota owners think they are better than everyone else:mamoru:

    O motherfucking HI-O
    2 second-gen Topazes behind it. A white base model, and the brown one might be a GS.
