We have a RAV 4 (built in Japan) and the quality and performance are outstanding. Our last Ford was, well, low in quality control.(to put it mildly) When my now very old Isuzu was out of warranty, a seal went bad. They said it was a faulty design, and repaired it free, totally no cost- that seems what Toyota is now doing. Toyota does indeed care about quality and customer service.
