You will always read about negative things more than positive things. People that are happy make very little noise while this that complain make a lot of noise. This is why I like the owner survey results form consumer reports. Nobody else gathers as much information from as many owners over as many years. Even Toyota doesn't build everything perfect but they have a lot better track record than any other manufacturer over the years.

And what it is, when I talk with Toyota service consultant who says, "yes, we have this problem. Its in the design of the engine."? See, I eliminated "people" for you. I talk to those who knows their cars.

I'm looking at the entire picture while you are looking at individual issues. Every manufacturer has cars with these design issues and problems. The difference is that some manufacturers have a lot more of them than others. These are machines made and deigned by humans, hence they will never be perfect. Using your example, some engines are much better than others. Period.
