              I agree, Japanese built Toyota’s are better!
              All because of American Edwards Deming! Deming taught them quality and right management. Detroit told Deming to get lost. That’s why Detroit quality stinks and Japanese are excellent. Toyota quality system I’d Deming!

                                I love the Ford 3.7. I have a Lincoln MKZ with that engine and I love it. It sounds like an 8 cylinder. Decent gas mileage and great acceleration

                                          Scotty- True story - My wife and I bought a brand new 1999 Lexus RX 300 3.5L AWD. Maintained at the dealer on their factory recommended schedule- at 100,000 miles it was using 1.5 quarts of oil every 2000 miles. Upon researching, it turned out that the engine had a major design flaw which would cause sludge pooling which restricted the flow of oil, causing engine failure.
                                          Lexus would NOT help us with the cost for a re-build, so the Dealer (Meade Lexus) bought it from me for 10K, rebuilt the engine at the dealer, and sold in on the lot for 16,500.

                                          Too bad for me- I will NEVER BUY another Lexus. Also, Service at the dealer is extremely expensive. We had a lot of electrical problems with dash lights burning out all of the time, etc.
                                          Have you heard of this engine problem? It was common with Toyota / Lexus 3.5 at the time (2009, approx. 10 years / 100 k miles).


                                          My point is, sir, that not all customers have good experience with Lexus V6.
                                          We've actually had much better luck with GM and Ford V6 vehicles. No Bias here, just the facts.

                                                                            I'm very impressed with my 3.5 6 cylinder in my 2010 Rav4 with 105k miles as of today.
                                                                            It is simply awe inspiring. Besides being almost 10 years old it is like new. It has incredible acceleration that puts me on a head trip everytime. Like he says, it is all around great engine. I get up to 31 mpg at times and that's very impressive for an AWD vehicle. It has a 5 speed automatic with over drive as well. I've never experienced anything like it.
                                                                            Although, just having saved $2500 doing tuneup myself instead of dealer, I was disappointed that you have to take off intake plenum to get to rear 3 plugs and coils. Also one of the brand new OEM toyota/lexus Denso coils was bad and i had to tear it down again to replace it.
                                                                            Goes to show you nothing is perfect, not even Toyota, but it's the best I've come across.

It has been a great van. I'm looking at a 2004 Cadiallac SRX V8, with only 43,xxx miles, for $7K but I'm not hearing good things about that Northstar engine.
