I am suspicious about the problems reported in the newspapers about the Toyota. Due to economic slow down, US domestic automakers suffered huge loss. I am suspicious that they are playing dirty tricks on Toyota to reduce the competition. Did any of the hubbers out here experienced problems with your Toyota car. We have Toyota in our family for the last 10 years, no major problems and we all love it.
The Toyotas with the problems that had to be recalled are the newer ones, so your 10 year old one would not have that problem. The newspapers are reporting it because it is an absolutely HUGE recall with 9 million vehicles being taken back.
Also, the newspapers have no stakes in the auto industry and they have been reporting about the US automakers suffering huge losses (GM) and large gains (Ford).
