Oh my ..a Toyota quality problem?

Toyota fixing engine failures in new Tundra truck - USATODAY.com



Toyota said Tuesday that it has found in a handful of its much-hyped new Tundra pickups a defect that caused the engines to fail.
Toyota (TM) has reports of camshafts breaking in the 5.7-liter V-8 engines of about 20 Tundras so far. The flaw was due to a manufacturing defect by a subcontractor. All of the engines are being replaced.

they wanted to be part of the "big truck industry" but what they don't understand is... it's still a TOYota, and yea I also think the commercials are a bunch of B.S.

Had ford had this issue, do you think for a second that they'd replace the whole engine? I think not. Neither would GM or Chrysler...

Toyota has a very long running history of taking care of their customers. Even 17+ years after the sale. Yes you read that right 17 years and 280,000 miles after purchase, my 1990 got a recall on the steering relay rod with free alignment to boot. Without any government intervention. I sure as hell dont see any domestic companys offering that to owners whose vehicles have 200,000+ miles on them. They usually drag their feet until people die (explorer + firestone = exploder) then they are federally forced to do a recall and still try to deny it at the dealer level.... And the domestics wonder why Toyota is now the largest auto maker in the world.

Just wait till you see a Hino in the Tundra....
