    yeah me too. my family has been all around toyotas. all from the 4runner, matrix, highlander, 2 celicas. cept for my mom who opted for the honda accord which i may add has had 2 transmission failures, 1 alternator failure, a broken pipe"i forgot but it recirculated exhaust back into the engine."

    what really got me was this top gear episode where they actually tried to KILL a tacoma, called a hilux in britain, by drowning it in sea water, park in on top of an exploding buliding, and hit it with a wrecking ball. and it still ran!! thats why i bought the tacoma.
