  1. Pretty sure the 93-98 Toyota Supra Turbo could outrun anything cheaper than 100k and gave the exotics a run for their money. We are talking the car as is from the factory. As for the beautiful LFA… the engine is Yamaha. The car wasn't all Toyota.

  2. My relative bought a Toyota corolla back in 70s when his career started booming. Fast forward to 2022, he has died and his son is still using his car as a daily driver. +750k milage.

  3. They won La Man twice and WRC not because their car outran other opponents but because they kept going while other opponents’ cars broke down in the middle of the race.

  4. My brother worked at a Toyota plant where they manufacture engines and transmissions. They definitely do care if you stop the line. Every second the line isn’t moving they extend their shift to make up for the stopped time. They are super super strict on employees.

  5. Not overly built but honestly built.
    In today's modern materials, engineering know how and affordable computer precision designing, manufacturing, assembly and ever higher educated humans, cars should really be lasting double what they did ten years ago.
    Fact that the life cycles of cars are not even increasing exponentially with the advancement in all things pertaining to cars is proof they are being manipulated to break sooner.

  6. The Toyota Production System is such a manufacturing phenomenon that we not only dive deep into it during manufacturing engineering classes, but several companies literally adopt it almost word by word.

  8. Bro great video but my boy did t just say Toyota has always been a go to for fuel economy. Literally some of the most reliable long lived engines, but most were not very fuel efficient at all

  9. I literally have kaizen and 7S training at work like 2 times a month. Burning improvement and quality into our brains on how to be efficient but also high quality. I think its a great system and will improve any brand using this process

  12. My best friend is a mechanic at a Toyota dealership… he says quality is down over the last 20 years….they have 8 kinds of brake pads when he feel they could use the same on most models….

  13. I work in the defense industry and we implemented Kaizen about 5 years ago. There have been so many process,quality, and safety improvements since we started using it. 99%of the time the best ideas come from the most inexperienced employees. Life changing!!

  14. The three, very well maintained Lexuses my parents owned were pieces of shit, two of them requiring new drivetrains long before they raced 100k (an LS400 and RX300, only the latter got it and it's always been a rattletrap). They were terrible to drive too, the LS being so numb it was frightening. A Corolla I once rented is the only rental I've ever had that broke down. The Grand Am that replaced it seemed like a Mercedes. The funny thing about those Lexuses is my parents still swore they were great cars. Why? They must be, they're Lexuses. I've owned multiple Hondas, a Mazda, Porsche and BMW and never had the issues of those Toyota products.

    Just remembered my mom had a Corolla and Corona in the 70s. Granted, all cars sucked back then, but still. Neither steered straight to the point it became a joke, even when new and the brakes failed on the Corolla going over Laurel Canyon pass. It only seemed decent at the time because my dad's Alfa GTV was even worse. Yeah, great cars. I'll never buy one.

  15. Only Toyota for me! So reliable, my Toyota Avensis D4D TD 2L is 22years old and doesn't break a sweat. It's a simple design so most of the maintenance I can do myself. I'm driving it at 180km/h in Germany all the time and it's a blast.
