I wondered if it was just mine and considered trading on a Tacoma, but listening to the dealerís shuttle van and my loaner car told me to run. I do love how indestructible the drivetrain is, and off-road it has preformed very, very well.

You may not have heard an earlier comment, but I also have two mystery noises coming from the suspension. One is a chirp in the front that sounds like a dry bushing, that the dealer had the nerve to say is fluid transferring in the shocks. Yeah. LOL! The other is a bad rattling from the front on washboard roads. Keep in mind the suspension noises were there at 5,000 miles.

What I see as a senior engineer and a person whoís had 20+ new cars, switched out engines, rebuilt automatic transmissions, and done everything else you can do to cars for 30+ years, is that assembly is correct. Itís the engineering and manufacturing that is off. And honestly manufacturing issues that pass inspection are Toyota engineering issues, too.

I blame Toyota engineering for poor mechanical and industrial engineering practices, and I stand by that. I donít blame assembly regardless of factory location. Proper engineering makes assembly the same regardless of where it is. I also donít blame parts manufacturers. Proper engineering and observation from Toyota removes that issue.

Based on the three Toyotas Iíve recently driven or been riding in, something is very, very wrong with the computer design and simulations being performed during the design phase on these cars. Noise, vibration, and harshness have for some reason taken a back seat. Itís probably cost and Toyota riding on itís reputation. Thereís no way engineering would allow it without it coming down from the top.
