To the version Toyota sell in Sydney, "extreme offroad conditions" means an unsealed driveway.

Yeh, I read that in this morning's Australian.
Toyota's excuse "only occurs on modified vehicles in extreme conditions" reads like Nissan's; "all the exploding 3.0L engines are either Police or Telstra".
And when are we gonna see any of this mentioned in the 4wd rags? Are their heads buried in the sand, or are they just worried that they won't get any more vehicles to test? Or get any more junket long-term test vehicles. Past experience is that they only run these stories when the new model is out.

Im with T on this he lobbies much harder to get the 3.0l fixed or ditched than Toyota to fix its front ends. The more this type of crap is exposed the more likely we will end up with decent 4bys

All I can add is that Toyota seem to have an excellent spin dept re their "legendary reliability". Past stuffups have been well pushed under the carpet.
