I won't again buy any Toyota vehicle

hello everyone,
i wanted to tell all the Toyota owners at rav4world.com that i will not buy anymore Toyota vehicles because i had a bad experience at a Toyota dealership, and I lodged a complaint with Toyota Motors, the headquarter that's in Torrence, California, but i was treated like i didn't matter to Toyota Motors, probably because they think Toyota Motors was too big to be affected. it's obvious the big companies haven't learned a lesson from the bankruptcy of General Motors! and what caused G.M. to go bankrupt.

Apparently Toyota Motors accepted the version the Michigan Toyota dealership gave at face value even when i could prove that the version if the Michigan dealership was a lie or a fabrication.

sounds familliar to me... my new transmission locked up on the highway 2 miles after they changed it, order a new one, new one does same thing, almost crash for the second time, Toyota corporate didn't care, said it was because lack of transmission oil, and blamed the dealership, but was not going to do anything against dealership... (normal since the oil level was fine on both!) then started insinuating that I was trying to screw them into giving an extended warranty for free...

started talking with a lawyer, and then they accepted to replace my now worthless/dangerous Rav4 for a new one at a fair price... yeah toyota really cares about the customer....

I'd certainly like to know more before I decide never to buy another Toyota. Your only other post was to do with painting fender skirts on a 4.1. I'm wondering what could be or have gone wrong with a car that old that Toyota could be considered responsible for.

BTW, I'll never buy a Government Motors car. But then I guess I was forced to buy part of one in my taxes.
