  • Was the G Wagon equipped with a CVT transmission? There's no way to get to 60mph in a single gear ratio. Was it engineered with multiple reverse gears in a traditional planetary gear style automatic transmission?

  • I owned a 99 TRD Tacoma, and the frame rusted in two, but not before the leaf spring brackets rusted and went into the shocks and brakes. It went back for the recall, and was replaced with a 08 TRD. It got a new frame too.

  • what about the floor pans of certain nissan altimas?...they would rust out the floor pans, driver and passenger sides..around the rubber drain plugs in the floor. i bought a used one and didnt realize my driver side floor had a huge hole in it that i didnt see until i went for my first fill up and seen the ground from inside the car around the fuel door latch beside the seat. the only thing from keeping me from fred flintstone'ing my car was the carpet.... they never issued a recall on them either because it wasnt a SAFETY HAZARD???...LOL

  • the floormat thing was a fraud. it was people stepping on accelerators instead of brakes. Toyota got shafted and even the US congress whipped them but it was all bs. look it up.

    • "On February 8, 2011, the NHTSA, in collaboration with NASA, released its findings into the investigation on the Toyota drive-by-wire throttle system. After a 10-month search, NASA and NHTSA scientists found no electronic defect in Toyota vehicles. Driver error or pedal misapplication was found responsible for most of the incidents."

Yes the exploder was a bad failure, but so was the POS pinto as well as crown vics and are also responsible for the deaths of the victims that were hit from behind & burnt to death 😪. Some folks like to diss on Chrysler products, but at least they don't BBQ their owners alive for hell sakes
