Default Toyota says 270,000 vehicles have faulty engines

Toyota Motor Corp. said Thursday about 270,000 cars sold worldwide --
including luxury Lexus sedans -- have potentially faulty engines, the
latest quality lapse to hit the automaker following massive global
recalls of top-selling models.

Japan's top-selling daily Yomiuri said in its evening edition that
Toyota will inform the transport ministry of a recall on Monday. The
paper cited no sources.

My new IS 250 is unaffected.

At least Toyota takes action to rectify their flaws, unlike American
car makers who opt to compare the dollar value from lawsuits that
result from human life loss to the dollar value involved in fixing
the issue. Remember the Pinto? Ford said it was okay that your
family died screaming in flames, as long as they didn't have to be
bothered with moving the gas tank.

Looks like you are sober enough to type. How was your rehab stint? Was it
for drugs or alcohol or both?

He's not yet approved for actual typing or thinking on his own. His
doctor says cut-n-paste only until the med dosage is 1/5th of current.

so true. and they did the same with their exploder suv and its inherent
instability. vehicle rolls when it gets a flat, roof collapses and
kills the occupants? easy - blame the tire company!

Which is precisely why I own a Toyota.
The article quoted says that 90,000 cars were exported from Japan, not
with bad engines but a stalling problem.
I'd bet a months pay that Ford does 90,000 warantee repairs for
stalling a month, and that they have for years.
Toyota is pro-active on defects, which I much prefer to US mfgr's
attempts to ignore issues and hope for the best.
I dunno, John, but all your negative posts about these cars makes me
wonder if a Tundra poisoned your wife and raped your daughter or visa
versa...

You got that right. How many hundreds of thousands of GM 3800s
were sold with faulty plenums, and GM did shit all to help us. Pennies on
the hundreds of dollars?

Toyota is not impervious, but they deal with their customers VERY well.

Exactly. Of course, US Media YELLS when Toyota announces a recall but
wispers when GM or Ford does it.

Indeed, he did catch us (the wife, the daughter, and myself) and took
pics with his girly phone which he later used against us. It took me
eight hundred ****ing dollars to dig myself out of that one! A days
pay for ****s sake! But ultimately it turned back around on him and
he got convicted for trying to tongue his own daughter when she was
17. Imagine.
