    This thread is only 2 days old and the new Yotas are not even a year on the market yet?
    Aren't you jumping the gun a bit here?

    Perhaps, and I'm sure in time some problems will surface.
    But I was led to believe there were problems already...

    Manny, why don't you just use what is already there - You know, that "don't try and reinvent the wheel" thing.

    Go to HelloPeter, and see what is there; https://hellopeter.com/toyota

    So I clicked on your link HC, first person bought a Toyota Professional.
    Third or 4th guy it's not clear if it's a GD or D-4D.
    5th person is moaning about customer service - on a Corolla...

    So that means there are hardly any (if any at all) that had any major issues.

    Perhaps the Toyota people are too embarrassed to admit that Toyota have problems?

    Just Google it and focus on the Asian market. I found the following;

    Not sure what you want to achieve with this thread - Toyota's don't break, you know that.

    Maybe we should involve Ernie to test a new Hilux
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    There are. There is a technical bulletin out for an incorrect front chassis mount. It is not aligned correctly and hence one gets knocking. A new mount is fitted under warranty.
