    QC will be slightly better. I think when they change they style and lines of the truck the QC will be payed closer attention to.

    Toyota admitted years ago of having to get back to their roots and pay closer attention to details and quality control. Has anything changed in the last 1-2 years?

    I know the 2010 Tacoma had a redesigned cup holder...

    i sure hope quality goes back up. with these recent recalls i think toyota will try to somewhat regain some of the respect they have lost in the general public

    Yeah Toyota is starting 2010 off on the right foot when it comes to quality huh! In all reality I'm sure they will increase their quality control procedures in order to avoid another "slip". I cant imagine the amount of money that this is costing Toyota.

    When is the 3rd gen Tacoma supposed to be out? It might be worth waiting for. I'm sure quality control will be at the top of the list. Hopefully.

    According to the Detroit News, Toyota’s incoming President Akio Toyoda intends to replace most of the company’s top management in an attempt to return the company to profit. As a result of the economic downturn and lagging auto sales, Toyota is reporting its first operating loss in over 70 years.
    Toyoda, the 52-year-old grandson of founder Kiichiro Toyoda, will succeed Katsuaki Watanabe in June. Watanabe will become vice chairman.
    Toyoda will be replacing the company’s other four executive vice presidents and many of the 19 senior managing directors, according to unnamed sources. He will also curtail Toyota’s expansion strategy, which had allowed the company to top GM in worldwide sales last year.
    Chairman Fujio Cho has stated that Honorary Chairman Shoichiro Toyoda, Akio’s 83-year-old father, and Adviser Hiroshi Okuda, 76, may step down from Toyota’s board; Toyota spokesman Paul Nolasco declined to comment.
    Toyoda must try to reverse the 15% sales drop in the US while finding ways to utilize Toyota’s excess production capacity in the meantime. Sales this year may reach their lowest levels in nearly thirty years after dropping last year for the first time in a decade.


    This has already happened. Akio Toyoda has gotten rid of quite a few "big wigs", and stated that his desire is to return quality to the consumer, and get Toyota back to the quality that made them the reputation they had.
