Toyota's were bulletproof for many years. In the 90s, I remember someone asking me if I thought they might have, "Too much quality." I didn't think so, but Toyota did.

Over time, they started a process of decontenting, which continues through the present day. One can only wonder why a company making the best product at a reasonable price would want to change. They eventually became bigger than General Motors, but look what happened to them.

Now, car buyers have to read reports on each individual model. Toyota was the last reliable make. I'm glad I read up on things, because I could have easily bought a Yaris, which is known as the Vitz in other places.
