How can toyota's steering components rust up if they are brand new? I hope nobody gets killed.

So what is going on with the rusty Lexuses? I thought it was the Toyota trucks that rused out.

The trucks do rust out. Now they are simply adding lexus and rav to the list of rusters.

toyota has been having quality problems for quite long time. I wouldn't touch a toyota with a 10 foot cattle prod.

This surprises me. We see a lot of the rusted out tacomas but it is rare to see new luxury Lexus cars with rust.

OOPS!!

For someone who professes to be technician, you have overlooked a very important fact.
There is no cable to the gas pedal on Toyota.
It's a drive by wire system.

Gotcha!!!

But keep on trying.

Someday you'll get it right.
