The Toyota Tundra (new Fullsize truck) built in San Antonio, Tex. has had 7-8 major engine problems with weak cranks while pulling boats or trailers and you will never see anything about it in the news. Needless to say if this were the American Manuf. it would be all over the news. TGH

Tundra doesn’t make the Government 5 star ratings like Ford & GM & Dodge.

Hey! This is good news!!

J.D. Power also gave the Platinum Plant Quality Award for producing vehicles yielding the fewest defects to Ford's Wixom Assembly Plant, where production ceased May 31. The Detroit-area plant produced the Lincoln Town Car, which averages 35 problems per 100 vehicles.

Not sure if the GT assembly was considered (but maybe....)

The same JD powers story also says that Porsche has the absolute worst score with 91 out of 100 cars needing to go back to the dealer within the first 90 days.

Now, is anyone jumping up and down saying how shitty Porsche is? If the Big 3 were to have the distinction that Porsche did in this survey, it would be headlines from here to eternity.

It's just like being a successful white male, whatever you do, your no good.
