You guys are tough.

If I had that many "insignificant" problems with a vehicle less than one month old, I probably would conveniently forget the model name too.

Definitely not likely though as I would never buy a Toyota in the first place.

LOL I think you might be seriously overestimating the size of that automobile....though if a Rover V8 will fit in an MG Midget (which is roughly the same size), I guess anything is possible!

Even a little 1.2l or 1.4l four would be a huge step up from that little Toyo's aircooled 800cc Flat-2, which puts down a blazing 28HP. Probably still pretty fun to drive, though.

The FJ Cruiser seems fun to me, but not so many other current Toyotas do. Then again, some folks' idea of fun is pretending to save the planet by driving a Prius and listening to NPR Podcasts. I think you're right, if they sold a "retro" version of that car (a little bigger, of course) even with an off the shelf, small displacement, twin-cam four it'd be a blast to drive, get 35-40MPG and sell like hotcakes. Market it as a competitor to both the Mazda Miata and Mini Cooper S. Instant classic!

BTW yes, I know this is totally off-topic.....but it's way more interesting to me than discussing some really vague flaws in yet another thread bashing Toyota. Blah blah blah accelerator pedals blah blah blah Ford Pinto blah blah blah recall blah blah blah floormat blah blah blah lemon blah blah blah ain't what she usedta be blah blah blah blah blah blah blah....

Oh, I see. You don't know then so the elusive "S" is a figment of everyone's imagination. Ok, I get it now..........

You missed the Matrix though.........

No matter, they'll still ignore it. They're in call-out a "troll" mode tonight.
It's too bad they didn't check the OP's profile page before they spoke.<egg on face>
