Here’s Why I Don’t Trust Toyota Anymore

March 10, 2020


Nicholas Samuel says should I buy a used
Corolla or a new Corolla from Quebec me I’d buy used for two reasons one you
save a lot of money buying a used car you buy a new one even a Toyota
money goes down the toilet but they’re gonna be recalling a new ones because of
that fuel pump issue and they’re not even telling old Scotty what the problem
is they just say there’s a fuel pump problem they don’t tell you if it’s for
wiring or the computer they don’t say anything so you know I definitely say
get a used one on that one who knows until they fix these that’s the way it
goes these days you know and even a company like Toyota is having problems
than they don’t tell you what the actual problem is oh these corporate dudes man
they have a tendency hiding stuff and I’m not one for hide stuff so I’d say
get a used one get one before 2018 it’s not included in any of this recall your
own carelessness Scotty only reliable economical cars that are actually cool
well if you want a reliable car relatively cool looking these days if
you don’t mind spring it for a Mazda Miata they’re kind of cool-looking and
they’re very alive the little four-cylinder convertibles if you got
the scratch to buy something like that or maybe you got a used one you know the
problem is the coolness factor generally goes with the price of the car they
deliberately make the better-looking ones cost more so they can make more
money selling up to you but you know I mean if you like the civics though yeah
you know I would have said the Corollas but now we’ve got this fuel pump issue
I’m waiting on that until they fix that actually tell Scotty what is happening
they’re not telling me maybe they’ll see this video and they’ll actually can’t
take me and tell me what’s happening cuz I attempted calling them and they did
not give me any information other than well we don’t know it’s something with
the fuel pump I mean what a load of BS gigantic ruse says Scotty what’s your
opinion Jaguar x-type and what can go wrong with it
alright just about anything they’re poorly made don’t sex just so poorly
made originally it was Jaguar in England then Tata the Indian company bought it
and then they lost a ton of money so they’re owned by the Chinese and a few
months ago even the Chinese were protesting that the Jaguar headquarters
they’re about low quality of the vehicles that they bought in China that
were Jaguar so anything can go wrong with those
vehicles you know don’t buy one if you value your money but if you got an
endless supply money you want to be seen in a Jaguar like they call them in
England go right ahead and spend your money you got tons of it you don’t care
what difference does it make this calendar still says Chevy better than
Ford ok she’ll be better and Ford well they were pretty tight or closed a long
time ago but Fords are definitely better than Chevy’s these days they have better
quality than the GM products I just get him over here all the time fixing
people’s cars and I ask him why’d you buy a Chevy so well my father had one 30
years ago it was good and I said yeah that was 30 years ago this is now I
would not advise buying one the quality is just not all that generic name says
thoughts on an Infiniti g37 2010 is it reliable well it still might be for a
while you didn’t say the mileage those are decent cars up to a point but when
they get high mileage and get old they start to have very expensive repairs now
I get customers with 2,000 tons and they’re still going pretty strong but
they all have only around a hundred thousand miles I also have customers
that buy them usually one hundred and forty thousand or more and they’re more
in ten years old and they generally fall apart cause them a fortune so if you’re
thinking about buying one don’t pay much for it because they don’t have much
resale value because of that the catalytic converters go bad the
transmissions go bad two air conditioning systems go bad as they age
they don’t hold up its wizzy says why does my catalytic converter keep going
out of my 02 Toyota Camry catalytic converters burn unburned hydrocarbons if
you have a catalytic converter it keeps going bad something is wrong with your
vehicle it could be that the engines running too lean which burns them out
could be running too rich which then puts extra fuel in it and then that
destroys the catalytic converter if the engines burning oil that’ll destroy it
if you buy a cheap after-market catalytic converter a lot of times they
won’t last long because they don’t have enough catalysts in them they’re just
cheaply made they don’t last that long so first I’d say make sure using an OEM
Toyota converter and see if it works with that but you want a guy like me to
check all systems cuz candolyn converters on Toyotas they
don’t go bad that often if they do it’s generally something else is breaking
them and if you don’t fix the root cause like it’s burning oil or it’s running
lean it’ll keep breaking the new catalytic converters regardless of what
brand you buy Jonathan Grubb Meyer says all of the sudden no more carvana advertisements good I got never agree well I did a little
research the other day and I found out that the company is 1.8 billion dollars
a death so they’re probably finding they can’t afford to keep throwing more and
more and more money Scottie’s forecasts is that the company
will go bankrupt in the future because they charge too much for their cars they
have big overhead and the only way they make money is by selling cars so if they
keep charging too much people won’t buy them and if they keep having more and
more overhead and borrowing more and more money eventually they’ll go
bankrupt because they won’t be a profitable company it’s only logical
99 Jose Rivera says what do you think of the reliability of an FRS BRZ 2014 you
know problems head gaskets blowing and stuff if they aren’t taken care of and
if they’re beaten are the problem with buying a vehicle like that it’s a pretty
zippy vehicle they rag the heck out of it many wear out faster so buying a used
vehicle like that is always a challenge you never know now if it’s an older guy
maybe he just liked it he didn’t beat it up I’ve had people buy used Corvettes
that were that way hey the guy who drove them was older didn’t beat him just like
driving around the car and took care of it garage it so you never know but with
something like that never ever buy used until mechanic checks a time a guy knows
what he’s doing do because you don’t want to buy somebody else’s problem
Steven gain are so Scotty will you take 500k for you 94 Celica well of course I
would I’m not a fool I only paid 350 bucks for it get up it’s just
possessions they’re not it’s not like my wife I wouldn’t take five million
dollars from my wife she probably took five hundred million dollars for me
sandy women says Toyota Corolla vs. Yaris sedan which one should I pick
Corolla I pick the older ones until they fixed the problems at the New Orleans
after Yaris has it just rebadged Mazdas now if you don’t want to spend much
money you could be happy with the Yaris they’re a cheaper car they ride cheaper
don’t have as much acceleration but if you want a car that’s cheap to keep and
you’re talking about a new one they can still run quite some time you’d pay a
lot less money for it it’s not kind of a matter what you want but if you want
ultimate quality and they last longer get a used Corolla get a new one when
they figure out the problems they have enough no one’s gag the Snipe says it’s
a 2003 diesel Ford Excursion a good buy okay the problem with excursions are is
their high-end vehicles as they age high-end vehicles generally get
expensive to prepare cuz they got all that electronic crap and on stuff that
breaks us to get all the diesel yeah that’s better than a gasoline engine
it’s gonna last longer if it’s taken care of there’s no doubting that if it
was taken care of it is a 17 year old vehicle you’d wanna can check it out it
would be better than the gasoline virgin certainly especially if you do a lot of
long distance traveling the diesels are much made for the highway but on the
other hand let’s say you do a lot of in town driving most people in the end
aren’t satisfied with a diesel when they do a lot of in town driving in that case
you’re better off like a gasoline engine doggone says hey Scotty why the dark
sunglasses well you only see this sign if I got bright light shining on my face
I’m old I’m half blind and so that’s what I wear plus wear would answer
questions on my computer because it keeps the glare down and doctors told me
you know you wearing your old your eyes will probably last longer that way so
that’s why they are plus is my image you know if I take them off I look a lot
older cuz I’m old maybe I have a whole face
mask it huh where I give mask or something buddies to be hockey goalie I
give my old goalie mask and put it on brandon doughty size is the recommended
to change your sealed automatic transmission fluid yourself sure I’ve
got video showing you how to do it if you learn how to do it and you got a
little pump you can get a little pump like I use from autozone for 12 bucks
you just drain out whatever drains out follow the directions you can get him on
I use all data you can Google lots of places show you how to do it measure it
man in a container exactly and put that same amount of new
fluid pumping back in it’s not rocket science now there’s a lot of ones that
say you’re gonna put a scan tool on and drive it an instant check the
temperature and then an it and then drive it but if you empty it out and you
pump in the same amount that came out as long as your transmission is good that’s
fine now if you rebuilt it or did work you might not know how much it needs but
as long as your transformation is dry and it’s not leaking anywhere you know
it’s full now just doing it out but they’d say well not back in it’s not
that hard to do James self so Scotty computer won’t engage they see
compressor are there alternatives there’s always alternatives you can roll
your windows down you can move to a colder climate depends
on the complexity of your system now if you got a Plain Jane
air conditioning system where there’s just a power wire going to the
compressor and it’s got a normal electric clutch on it you can just cut
the power wire and you can run a toggle switch to the battery with a fuse and
then back to the compressor and if that turns it on and it works great you know
I mean you can bypass all kinds of stuff if you want to start messing around with
it you’d have to make sure that the cooling fans are still coming on you
might have another switch to turn the cooling fans on there’s all kinds of
things you can do if you want to but see if you have a real modern car with one
of those fancy compressors that has various different speeds that run by
computer 5 volt circuits you can’t bypass them because you need
the computer to decide when to make it run at 20% went to 100 and not wanting to
run the clutch itself and some of the modern ones don’t even have clutches on
them they run all the time and you can’t bypass that fortunately they really make
it stuff so even though Scotty can’t rig them up so they work cheaper, so if you
never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember to ring that
Bell

  2. Oh, no Toyota is having problems, with it 's new cars first the New Camery engines from Kentucky being machined wrong, now the fuel pump on the 2018 to 2020 Toyotas.

  3. NOOOOOO!!! Never buy a used car from Quebec! Have you seen the damage the crazy amount of salt that's used in Quebec does to every car? You cannot undo one bolt on a Quebec car when it is a few years old. EVERYTHING is rusted and seized up.

  4. Scotty seems to try and steer buyers away from those 15- 20 year old cars…but in many ways they are much better than the new cars in terms of reliability.

  5. The recalls is not affected on 2020 Toyota at all. Only some Toyota and Lexus 2014-2019. All manufacturer have recalls. Honda and Acura got recalls on fuel pump also on some SUV about 427k. Here is the list for Toyota and Lexus vehicles recall. Here are the models and model years of vehicles included in the recall:
    — 2013-2015 Model Year Lexus LS 460;
    — 2013-2014 Model Year Lexus GS 350;
    — 2014 Model Year Toyota FJ Cruiser, Lexus IS-F;
    — 2014-2015 Model Year Toyota 4Runner, Land Cruiser; Lexus GX 460, IS 350, LX 570;
    — 2015 Model Year Lexus NX 200t, RC 350;
    — 2017 Model Year Lexus IS 200t, RC 200t;
    — 2017-2019 Model Year Toyota Sienna; Lexus RX 350;
    — 2018 Model Year Lexus GS 300;
    — 2018-2019 Model Year Toyota Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra; Lexus ES 350, GS 350, IS 300, IS 350, LC 500, LC 500h, LS 500, LS 500h, RC 300, RC 350, RX 350L.
    Toyota and Lexus dealers will replace the involved fuel pump with an improved one at no cost to customers, according to the company.
    Owners of vehicles currently included in the recall that weren’t included in the original notice on Jan. 13 will be notified by early May.

  6. I disagree with what you're saying about Carvana, because for that matter Carmax wouldn't exist lmaooo They probably have half the overhead that Carmax has

  7. Scottie u are the most honest person u totally understand the poor mans struggle and how important a vehicle is to us average people reliability is so important to us thank u so much u are a saint..

  8. I bought a 2020 RAV4. Now it won’t fill more than 9-10 gallons. I don’t know what to do? I have a warranty but I don’t believe Toyota has the solutions yet! Scotty what should we do? I feel like they taking poor people's money by selling in the name of reliable scamming.” Toyota’s reliability has gone. It’s all just a bunch of crap. Even the body parts, all are cheap plastic. I lost my faith in Toyota reliability!

  9. The fuel pump recall is for 2013 models and later. So there is no reason a used Toyota is more reliable than new one. Also Toyota still recalling 2003 Corollas and up for their airbags. Sorry Scotty!

  10. Scotty, if we change transmission fluid just by draining whats in the pan. What about the dirty oil that is still inside the transmission + the filter itself? Does draining oil that is in the pan considered transmission fluid change?

  11. Quality is not a priority for any manufacturer. Not even Toyota. All are throw away products now so no need to be dedicated to any brand.

  12. At the moment you lowered the hammer on Carvana, they put on a commercial, what timing. Looks like a crazy concept. Thanks for the great info Scotty, im hanging on to my 20 yr old Camry.

  13. I don't trust it because toy Yoda is clearly not spelled that way. It's a scam!!! IT'S A DAMNED SCAM

  14. Scotty, 11 months ago I purchased a 2010 Infiniti G37x with 65k miles for $10.5k. It now has 90k miles and I’ve had to do no major maintenance besides oil and filter and new tires. The right front wheel makes a squealing noise when I turn to the left. Is this the brake pads getting low? Should I consider replacing the rotors when I replace brake pads? I purchased the car because I read numerous testimonies of $250k miles with minimum maintenance. Coming from a 2012 Ford Focus that needed the CVT changed every 10 months, that was the main selling point for me.

  15. You know Scotty thats call Borderline Personality Disorder when you go from raving from love about somebody and then with no real change in the other person,you turn on them ! Just sign me,
    Concerned.

  16. The thing I've noticed what Toyota is they're over priced for what you get because I did a parts comparison with a 2001 Chevy S10 and 2001 Toyota Tacoma and Chevy still beat them out on affordability on repair also living in Japan Toyota and Honda would be great options well that's what happens when you have to do foreign domestication and importing into the United States

  17. What would you rather recommend, a Toyota 86 basic model nothing fancy, not trying to do drag races or anything it’s more for the aesthetics because I really like the look of the car or a Honda Civic coupe Basic model as well, tbh I just really want a coupe 😅

  18. I know you don’t care much for Nissan. I have a rock solid 2010 Maxima. Don’t you have a video where you say the Maximas are good? I just replaced the PCV valve today took 5 mins. What should I try if my AC doesn’t get very cold only like 60 degrees F.

  19. Scotty, when you mentioned the 2003 Excursion Diesel, it likely has the 6.0L diesel. What do you think about those in regards to the issues they had with the fuel injectors in the 6.0Ls? Were they resolved by 2005? I have a 02 F250 with the 7.3L and would like an Excursion but afraid to buy one with a 6.0L. 02 and older Excursions are hard to find at a decent price with a 7.3L.

  20. Scotty, Here's Why I Don't Trust Toyota Anymore, I bought a brand new 2017 Toyota Yaris IA with 34 miles on it. I got all the free maintenance done on time and was very happy. Then my check engine light came on at 33,000 miles. The code was P0301, which is a misfire on the number one cylinder as you know. I took it to the dealer where i bought it and they could not figure out what was the problem. I then took it to another dealer and left it overnight, so they could feel the vibration of the engine while it was cold. Both dealers acknowledged the code. The second dealer put in the invoice to me, "DIAGNOSIS IS INCONCLUSIVE HAVE CUSTOMER MONITOR AND ADVISE". Now my car is out of warranty when it wasn't when I took it to both dealers. I bought a Toyota because I had a 1991 Toyota Previa and it had 350,000 miles on it when it got totaled. I wanted the longevity! Now I'm stuck with a Toyota (Mazda) that is a piece of crap! Because of my experience, I will never buy a Toyota ever again. Honda Civic Here I come!!!

  21. Bad fuel pump made by Denso. The fuel pumps impellers can deform due to excessive fuel absorption.
    Sounds like poor quality.

    The Denso pumps can cause the vehicles to run rough and stall, typically at speeds below 20 mph.
    The pump may quit and the engine will stall. Toyota will replace the fuel pumps starting in May.

    Models in the recall. 2018 and 2019 Toyota Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Sequoia, Tacoma and Tundra vehicles, as well as the 2018 and 2019 Lexus ES 350, GS 350, IS 300, IS 350, LC 500, LC 500h, LS 500, LS 500h, RC 300, RC 350, RX 350L.

    Also covered are the 2013-2015 Lexus LS 460, the 2013-2014 Lexus GS 350, the 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser and Lexus IS-F, the 2014-2015 Toyota 4Runner and Land Cruiser and Lexus GX 460, IS 350 and LX 570. Other vehicles include the 2015 Lexus NX 200t and RC 350, the 2017 Lexus IS 200t and RC 200t, the 2017-2019 Toyota Sienna and Lexus RX 350, and the 2018 Lexus GS 300.

  22. What’s good Scotty, I recently bought a 2012 Scion tC 83k miles, so far I’ve had 0 issues but what are your thoughts on it.

  23. Scotty, every time I pull up next to an attractive woman in a Range Rover or other European car, the first thing I think is, “endless money pit.”

    I have a question. I’m not in the market for a new car, but when I am, I’m strongly considering a Camry based on your praise of it and its reputation as being a very solid car. Do you recommend the V6 Camry, or should I stick with the four cylinder?

  24. Toyota is turning into straight garbage lately idk what they’re doing but it’s wrong. I drive a 2002 Toyota Tacoma V6 automatic and it’s at about 115k miles still running great without ever having a problem:) now Toyota making the decision to move the Tacoma’s to Mexico made me mad it’s just ruining their great reputation they’ve built over the years

  25. I still keep a few wire coat hangers under the spare tire with a pair of side cutters just in case exhaust hangers break there's a tip for the day

  26. I love your videos. I tell all my buds about you and watch you everyday. I own an 07 gmc Sierra with the notorious "evap code". I did gas cap. Evap sensor. Evap canister. Changed the fuel pumped. After fuel pump it was off for months. It's back. Hahaha time to drive it off a cliff bud!

  27. Thanks Scotty for giving the Miata a shout out. I plan to buy one within the next few years as my second car.

  28. Hey Scotty, I got a 2012 Toyota Highlander with 180k miles and the when I try to accelerate hard the car stops accelerating and it just revs up if almost it’s in neutral.

  29. Scotty I met an executive business man at my office complex. I asked which car is his. He pointed to a 1997 Lexus ES 300. Every time I see him driving to and from work he’s so happy that you’d have to use a sander to get the smile off his face.

  30. Scotty, what’s your thoughts on Chevy avalanche? I got at 2007, was garage kept (115,700 miles) I’ve had it for 4 months runs good

  31. I can tell that is hurts Uncle Scotty to trash talk Toyota because he's been advocating for them since the dawn of mankind. 😂😂 Scotty can't believe that good old Toyota especially his favorite car of all time the Corolla. Next video, he will telling everyone that Kia and Hyundai are coming up with great vehicles since it's now evidence that no manufacturer is perfect contrary to popular belief, not even Toyota.

  32. If a car can last for a really long time..then all the car companies will go bankrupt and a lot of people losing jobs… Bc company can’t sell new car if people not buying them😪…

  33. The car industry has become a dirty business when even Toyota customer loyalty is out the door. They are all just trying to get your money now . The new Toyota and hondas won't last like the ones of yesterday .

  34. Scotty you are wrong about Ford vs GM. I know about a dozen people with Fiesta's and Fusions and literally every single one of them has had major problems. Terrible transmissions that fall apart, terrible AC systems that fall apart, terrible electronic systems that fall apart, all under 100 thousand miles. Meanwhile everyone I know with a Spark and Sonic has been very happy.

  35. So now Toyota sux and Scotty believes Porsche is the way to go. I don’t have money like that. Hell, I couldn’t even think of buying a newer Toyota either.

  36. Corolla's with fuel pump and CVT problems. I had two Corolla's 1999 and 2001. And a 1992 Toyota pickup. Biggest POS I ever owned. All 3 at 80,000 miles started burning more oil than gas. I changed the oil every 3,000 miles. The 1992 pickup clutch went out just before 100,000 miles. The Toyota reliability myth is alive and well.

  37. i remember reading something about the fuel pumps being turbine style, and the amount of gas the engine requires caused the fuel pump to have too high of a pressure which deformed the turbine inside the fuel pump (i could be wrong about this)

  38. I have a 2016 Toyota Corolla and about a year and a half ago, I had a light coming from the dash board. I went to the dealership who charged me $196.00 for just to find the issue. At first, they said it was the gas cap. They charged me for the gas cap and the labor around $70.00. Next day, the light came back., they told me to replace the fuel pump which I I did and they charged me almost $500.00. The light came back next day and the dealership told me to change the evap canister which was $400.00 part and they did the labor for free. All this was done at a Toyota dealership. Part of me felt betrayed by Toyota that day, I am still a fan of Toyota but I think I was not told the whole true🤷‍♂️👀
