Toyota always makes great cars and trucks. Stopped buying American and German cars years ago after so many bad ratings in the Consumer Reports magazines. I can hardly wait for the renovated Kaimuki Toyota to reopen as a repair shop.

Our 4Runner just turned 200K this year, and the Toyota service department has to be like the old Maytag repairman commercials - no complaints!
Just keep up on the timing belt changes, hoses and belts and use synthetic oil/lubes wherever possible, it'll maybe last, like our $4Runner, 4Ever.
We'll come visit Mr. Ho if it needs something I can't fix...

Funny that censor on Steven's last name in my post a minute ago! Oh well, you can hardly use any word anymore without the ghetto translation.
Keep up the good work!

OK, folks, "ho" has been taken out of the "bad words" list ... at least for the time being. It was on the default list of bad words that came with the forum software.
Mahalo for your patience and good humor!

Toyota tried to rip me off one time.
I took my 4runner for service and to repair my "stick-shift" that kept slipping out of gear on the road.
The service tech. called me back and said "going about $2,500.00 to fix....if you like us just take apart your tranmission to get inside and give you a good and firm assessment going be about $600.00"
I said that's o.k. and called a local mechanic you diagnosed it over the phone. He said it might be a plate that goes over the stick shift
I took it in and that was the problem that was only $180.00.
I never went back to the the Toyota dealership. Never trust the dealership because they are their to make big commission off of us. They understand that we don't know what they are talking about.
Find yourself a good local mechanic who you can develop and relationship with. See the local mechanic depends on word of mouth advertising rather than big budget advertising. So if the local mechanic screws you, then you tell all your family and friends.
I don't want to name my mechanic because people may feel that this is a shameless plug. If interested, then let me know.
