    So much for green efficiency, it must have cost a lot of energy to wrongly produce so many parts. But just the thought of a "green" car makes those tree huggers go all goose pimply.;)

    The cars get recalled at least.
    MB don't seem to think your brakes or dangerous corrosion matter too much.

    All stems from the fear of "class action" lawsuits in America. Once it's public over there -its difficult for Toyota to keep "the lid on it" worldwide. I don't anticipate Toyota components are much different in quality to other volume manufacturers? Perhaps its because the Americans insist on a certain percentage "local content." ;)

    The prius is one of the most efficient and reliable cars Toyota make.
