    Design things as simple as possible to perform a given function and design everything so margin of error and defects in manufacturing impacts reliable operation as little as possible. Finally if it ain't broke (iterate on known reliable design), don't fix it (clean-sheet designs) if you can help it.

    Actually one more thing. Don't leash your Engineers by the hand of the Bean Counters. That's how Fords happen.

      They use 10~15 year old technology when making a brand new engine family and underpower everything. That and yes good tolerances for mating surfaces or it gets melted.

      I miss when Toyoda acctually inovated like the two Jay Z rapper

      This guy gets it. People just don't fricking know the truth because they don't wrench. Honda does innovate here and there, Toyota does once in a generation.

      what he said

      refusal to innovate is their secret, toyota tried to go with electric wastegates and the tundra is now shit while every other turbo engine after it is back to vacuum wastegates

      gr corolla's highest level of tech is fricking d4s and maybe electrohydraulic plated clutches in the rear/tcase both of which came out in 2008

        Oh I forgot to mention that. Their metallurgy is cheap as frick. I mean it's not cutting corners like asiatics, but it's nothing to write home about. What's d4s though?

          It's why Toyota engines don't carbon up at high miles like every other manufacturer including Mazda and BMW.

    Boring underpowered motors that are designed to not explode when slightly neglected and run for at least 200,000 miles if you do take care of it.
    Run one a quart or two low while redline launching every stoplight and it wont run forever.

        This but unironically. the loss of the 3ur family in tundra, land cruiser, etc is beyond lamentable and I think the beginning of the end for Toyota as a prestigious brand.

          I'm honestly glad they killed the Prius off with this hideous abomination. I got one as a fleet vehicle and it was the biggest piece of shit ever, completely fell apart and had transmission issues around 40k miles.

    Pick two and only two. This is the Toyota way. That and as other anons have mentioned, they don’t innovate at all and use 15 year old technology that is already tried and true. Nothing wrong with that, but it leaves the burden of innovation on other manufacturers like GM, Ford, etc.

    Toyota is dumb. It’s what you buy when you’ve given up on life. You can also just delude yourself by buying a Toyota with a different badge (REXUS) and leather seats too that costs more.

    one of the only perks of being a Canadacuck is that I only have to wait 15 years to import instead of 25, I'd like to import either a 2007 mr2 spyder or a 2007 caldina gt4, I can't choose which one would be best though, I do a delivery job (been driving since Nov 2020 and have done near 12,000 deliveries) and I want something with a bit more finesse

    if I go with the caldina I get that sweet celica gt4 drivetrain and 3sgte engine but I think parts are going to be a lot harder to get (mostly with just waiting for them to come from Japan or wherever), it'd be a lot better in the snow and I could probably get rid of my 2015 corolla because of its practically, it only comes in auto though and I'd really miss driving stick (unless I save enough to replaced with a manual transmission but that'd cost an arm and a leg here in Canada..), also would consume a bit more fuel but I don't mind it if it means I get a bit of more fun to drive car

    the mr2 spyder is really light and the mid engine thing is cool, even with the low powered 1zz I'd still like it (mainly because the roads here are too short, and with too many corners to really allow utilizing much more power, highest speed limit is only 50km in my small city), would definitely be keeping my Corolla if I went this route, it being able to come with a manual by default and being more of the "driver's car" is appealing, and since it was sold here in North America it'd be alot easier to find parts for it. It rains here like half the year though and the 4wd of the caldina would definitely handle it better than the mr2 spyder.

    what do you guys think?
