    That fucking sucks dude. Toyota really doesn't have a warranty for that kind of stuff at 65k? Damn, even Mitsubishi will take care of you up to 100k (if you're the first owner). I seriously agree though... all cars are bullshit. The amount of wacky shit that happens with my Nissan is insane, and from what I hear, this is just the normal experience. Really should have kept my Frontier because it was SIMPLE, but then again the driveshaft started vibrating like crazy at 40k and the front calipers were getting stuck. What is with this shit? Oh well... hindsight etc, etc.

    Got to take the Honda in next week to get recalled airbags swapped out. Fuggs kept leaving sensational notices on my door. "Must change, death is imminent, call now!"

    Hahaha my wife had a Suzuki for a while and they had a recall related to the airbags. They sent at least 5 different letters with increasing urgency...

    "Sorry to inconvenience you, but please perform this recall"

    "Seriously though, you guys should really get this done"

    "We aren't fucking around, this is dangerous."

    "If you get into an accident, your passenger airbag won't deploy and we're trying to save your life"

    "YOU WILL DIE, I SWEAR TO GOD"

    We never took it in.

    Dropped Accord off this morning, three hr process. Relatively less painful than a faulty airbag deploying, though not as krieg.

    What about the friggin' Hilux? I went on the Toyota Sverige website once and the gallery for that truck showed it climbing a volcano.

    This photo is from the "safety" section. Sweden really is the most metal place ever.
