Off topic, but I didn’t start it
I used to work for Toyota in Japan and always bought their cars. My last experience with a 1 year old Lexus changed all that. Unfortunately, the cars are no longer engineered the way they were in the 1990s. Toyota today is all about profit maximization!
After I experienced a major safety flaw in my Lexus, and when Toyota HQ could care less and treated me worse than I have ever been treated, I stopped buying their cars.
I’ve been absolutely thrilled with Mercedes reliabilty, engineering, design, and quality since!
