You'se guys are funny sometimes when it comes to defending car manufacturers..
I'm guessing you didn't read either article, did you?
If you read my post, I only wanted to show some issues Toyota was having that paralled issues that GM has had and gets some regular flak for here on BC. Note the intermediate shaft issues, for example. My post was not meant to be an attack on anyone or any manufacturer. It was informational.
Nor did the post attempt to be all inclusive as to the number of Toyota recalls. I'm sure there have been more than two, but then that wasn't my point.
If one takes the time to read the articles and some of the many others out there on the mighty interweb, the main thrust is just that Toyota, like any other automotive giant, is experiencing some growing pains. How they respond and resolve these current issues will affect them going forward, as there are many companies on their heels looking for any larger piece of the market.
As to how the numbers were counted or whether these reflect a larger percentage of their total production, that'* for someone else to discover, I didn't write the articles, nor did I attempt to verify any information.
I do, however, find it humerous to see all those that are driving imports jumping to the defense, though I don't recall that there was an attack...lol.
