    It is always the vehicle maker's fault in the public view. Behind the scenes it's always the supplier's fault. Always.

    Until additional information is known ( Yes, it is a very small percentage so far but it will likely get bigger. ) neither you nor anyone else knows what the extent of the problem is. I know that you'd hope it's in all 30,000 engines and since hope springs eternal just keep the faith. Your fondest wishes might come true. :)

    Hmmmm...............With a paultry 64k or so sold so far and the end of the 07 model year 3 months away they will be lucky to break last years 125k 06s sold let alone dream of reaching the 200k mark they hoped for..........

    Well this is a '10-month' year. January was the wind-down for the '06 and Feb was the ramp-up month as vehicles began to arrive. Then gas went to $3/Gal...and Texas is just starting its second shift this month.

    It will be whatever it is. As long as monthly volumes stay in the 15-20K range then this meets their expectation.

    I was a Toyota tech for 10 years or so and I hate to say it but ever since toyota started producing cars in the US. Which was around 1995 they have had problems. The use of delco parts and other various brands on the US production cars and trucks was and still is a major problem.

    No question that Toyota has its share of growing pains, but that is exactly what they are. It is rapidly expanding to meet the demand for their vehicles so it is a given that there will be issues along the way. The Detroit3 have had their plants for decades and have done anything but expand over the last 10 years as they shudder plants, employees, benefits and wages in order to compete. So despite having all of these things in place, they still have difficulties with their products on a larger scale than Toyota. Not that Toyota is infallible or that the Detroit3 are terrible (they're much better than many of their European rivals), but if you've ever seen the manufacturing plants and the environment and attitude differences between Toyota and the Detroit3, it would become very clear to you why Toyota's quality, in general, is considered by the industry to be the standard (I personally think Honda is better than Toyota). Once expansion at Toyota settles down a bit, quality will again improve. Still even with all of these problems, Toyota still tops most, if not all manufacturers in this regard.
  • When i joined this website, i thought i would get some useful information about my new tundra truck. How wrong i am. It seems like a bunch of kids fighting over who has the best truck, who's # 1, and every other thing that kids fight about. Anyway,I've read enough and i'll be moving on to HOPEFULLY another non-bickering site that i can get some information about my new tundra.
  • Hey grapepicker, you may have already joined up but Tundrasolutions is a good site. Occasional Trolls, but overall very imformative. Definitely not a hate forum. :)
