1.8L engine of Toyota is supposed to be solid. 2.4L engine not good, burns oil.
Toyota's new 8-speed transmission needs more testing according to Scotty. Not working all that well. Their 5 and 6 speed transmissions are running well.
Scotty thinks the 2012 Accord 5 speed automatic transmission will last, but prefer standard tranny. Also likes their 4 cylinder engine over 6 but either works. Prefers 2.0 L 4 cylinder engine over the smaller one 1.5 L and avoid Turbo Charging as it wears out the engine quicker and can lead to oil dilution (gas leak past piston rings into oil chamber).
Use OEM transmission fluid...or all fluids really.
P0171 Engine running lean. Scotty goes through his approach. Mass air flow sensor cleaning fixed this one, as it did my car recently. Now I can do it myself.
TPM tire pressure monitoring system alternative that's much cheaper than the factory installed units, which are expensive to replace.
RAV 4 but a little more recent. 2.5 4 liter w/ 6 speed transmission. 2015
Mazda CX-5, he like the Japanese made, mazda made transmission--not jayco. Seems to be doing well so far. Avoid the smaller 4 c and get the larger one.
PO171 I think scotty had same code I had on infiniti, too lean. He addressed it differently.
