There was a time Toyotas would be in my top 3 considerations when buying a car. Now, they aren't on my radar at all. Not sure what happened. Honda was downtrending in similar fashion, but they seem to have pulled their heads from their asses all of a sudden.

Makes sense, given that hobos like to use them for sex.

More green jobs, fixing those pieces of crap.

Is it me or are the majority of drivers without their lights on at night Prius drivers? Every few nights I'll see a car without its lights on, 2 out of 3 times it's a Prius.

You'd think they could put some sort of daylight sensor, compare that to the speed of the car, then warn the driver that their lights aren't on...

Toyota used to be synonymous with quality. Has Toyota moved production to Chinese prison camps or something? What is going on?

Or something like a sensor and a switch that can be put in auto position to turn them on automatically. Like in my 1999 Jeep GC Laredo.

Recalls are a scam to get your car in the shop to find other problems (real or made up) (mostly made up).

They recalled my 10 year old car for the steering wheel glitch. The mechanic managed to total the car in a front end collision on a local street. The dealership treated me like crap. I negotiated directly with their insurance company, letting them know I worked in litigation for 6 years. Then, I took my fairly generous settlement to a Honda dealership.

I dunno about older Priuses, but on my 2012 model, the switch for the lights actually needs to be pushed back (like you're turning on high beams) as well as rolled up like other cars to turn on the regular night head lamps. For a few months I just thought the head lamps were very dim, but it turns out I was just using the DRL.

/I know that sounds dumb. It took watching my car get valeted to realize that I was Doing It Wrong.
//Maybe they're just clueless like me.

That's why you don't buy the Toyota's that are made in America. The only ones being recalled are the vehicles being made in Alabama and Arkansas.

Country doesn't matter. Toyota's service disintegrated in the face of high demand. Dealerships are turning around car repairs under warranty without so much as driving them into the service bay.

Until two weeks ago, I owned a J- vin RAV4. VVTi hose split at 50,000 and dumped all the oil. Toyota refused to do anything but add 6 qts of oil and insist I was good to go again. The car developed a slow oil leak at 60,000 miles. Three fixes under warranty made no difference. The fourth farked up the differential which, alongside with the oil drops, left much heavier syphilis like splooge all over my garage. Three attempts to fix the differential failed to make a difference.

Honda gave me low KBB for it at 90,000 miles. I considered myself lucky to get that. You could see oil all over the engine and smell the differential 50 feet away. Toyota put in a dozen repairs on that biatch (three dealerships). The last supposedly cost $2500. Eh, I kind of figure heart burn and lawsuits follow Toyota fans. I'll be in their dealerships again for sure, but just to see how long the cheap suit monkeys will follow my fart trails.
