Now THAT is the level of lemon laws we need to have in place here in Australia.You wouldn't be happy getting a brand spanker and having dramas from day one either poor bugger
I know someone who bought a brand new BMW X5 and it would intermittently just shut down all the time. He owned it for 12 months and only got to use it for about 4 months as it spent the rest of the time at the dealers.
To BMW's credit they provided him a loan car the whole time and in the end when the gremlin could not be found they took the vehicle back and sent it back to Germany and gave hiim a full credit of his initial purchase price to buy any other car they sold
You would think so wouldn't you but when you look at Jeep who has a reputation for being a lemon on several fronts de copped bucket loads of bad publicity still manage to sell a lot of vehicles so who knowsThis certainly will go against Toyota if he pursues it like the Jeep bloke.
Toyotas main attraction is the quality, reliability, and back up it's renowned for, if they lose that from incidents like this, they'll have to go on price point like all the others !!

Hi mate, I've never heard of a 60 being unreliable, must have been one of those rare lemons like the 200, unless you had the old 2f petrol version, I had one of those that was impossible to tune, spluttered when I drove through a puddle, but still clocked massive ks, never been on a tow truck, got the 2h 1988 model now which has been rebuilt from scratch 90,000 ks ago engine 190,000 ks ago, should turn over the 750,000 k mark over the holidays, and this old girt tows 90 percent of the time, ultra reliability if treated right. Don't think I'd replace it with anything from jeep for reliability improvement Unless it was an original v8 Cherokee , now that was a nice jeep. Yeah I like old cars.I've owned a Jeep Wrangler for 12 years and recently purchased a brand new twin cab Toyota 79 series.
the Yota is more like a truck that can carry loads of stuff and the Wrangler is a go any where vehicle and can carry bugger all. have clocked up 200k on the little Jeep, so far so good with only normal service type things. (do all my own maintenance). there are few funny quirks about them but easily resolved and any spares are cheap and easy to get from US vendors
plus in the 1980's owned a Yota 60 series for ten years. compared to that vehicle the Jeep was more reliable mile for mile
