Very true. Everything that America has invented concerning automobiles was stolen by asians.

Americans invent shit but they can't build shit that holds up. Tesla is the only fully American car made today. We will see how those hold up.

The US also largely is responsible for Japan's reputation for quality...



HISTORY OF JAPAN'S QUALITY MOVEMENT

The quality movement in Japan began in 1946 with the U.S. Occupation Force's mission to revive and restructure Japan's communications equipment industry. General Douglas MacArthur was committed to public education through radio. Homer Sarasohn was recruited to spearhead the effort by repairing and installing equipment, making materials and parts available, restarting factories, establishing the equipment test laboratory (ETL), and setting rigid quality standards for products (Tsurumi 1990). Sarasohn recommended individuals for company presidencies, like Koji Kobayashi of NEC, and he established education for Japan's top executives in the management of quality. Furthermore, upon Sarasohn's return to the United States, he recommended W. Edwards Deming to provide a seminar in Japan on statistical quality control (SQC).

Deming's 1950 lecture notes provided the basis for a 30-day seminar sponsored by the Union of Japanese Scientists and Engineers (JUSE) and provided the criteria for Japan's famed Deming Prize. The first Deming Prize was given to Koji Kobayashi in 1952. Within a decade, JUSE had trained nearly 20,000 engineers in SQC methods. Today Japan gives high rating to companies that win the Deming prize; they number about ten large companies per year. Deming's work has impacted industries such as those for radios and parts, transistors, cameras, binoculars, and sewing machines. In 1960, Deming was recognized for his contribution to Japan's reindustrialization when the Prime Minister awarded him the Second Order of the Sacred Treasure.

In 1954, Dr. Joseph M. Juran of the United States raised the level of quality management from the factory to the total organization. He stressed the importance of systems thinking that begins with product designs, prototype testing, proper equipment operations, and accurate process feedback. Juran's seminar also became a part of JUSE's educational programs. Juran provided the move from SQC to TQC (total quality control) in Japan. This included company-wide activities and education in quality control (QC), QC circles and audits, and promotion of quality management principles. By 1968, Kaoru Ishikawa, one of the fathers of TQC in Japan, had outlined the elements of TQC management:

- quality comes first, not short-term profits
- the customer comes first, not the producer
- customers are the next process with no organizational barriers
- decisions are based on facts and data
- management is participatory and respectful of all employees
- management is driven by cross-functional committees covering product - - planning, product design, production planning, purchasing, manufacturing, sales, and distribution (Ishikawa 1985)

By 1991, JUSE had registered over 331,000 quality circles with over 2.5 million participants in its activities. Today, JUSE continues to provide over 200 courses per year, including five executive management courses, ten management courses, and a full range of technical training programs.

This is my Toyota Echo that I got free from my Dad. The insurance company offered to pay him $3,126 if he turned the title in and $2,826 if he didn’t. I spent another $1,100 fixing it up and so far I’ve added Apple CarPlay, Heads Up Display and a rear wing. Next up is 360 birds eye camera system. Car only has 83,000 miles and will go to 300,000 miles easy. 18 years old and doesn’t leak a drop of anything. Love it!!

I just bought a 2013 Lincoln mkz with 33,000 miles on it. I wonder if it will last for 300,000 miles. Would have bought a Avalon but they dont make em with AWD.

It won’t. But that Toyota Echo certainly will. The 1.5L in-line 4 in that echo is legendary. Just like the 2JZ in the Supra. Toyota designed it perfect on the first try and still uses the same engine with basically zero changes 20 years later.

Kind of like how toyota had to use the Chevrolet 350 design to compete in Nascar?

Toyota can't built shit that's legendary. Lol

in the winter you can "save your battery" by not cranking long. cranking several turnovers can kill a battery and is hard on the starter

let it turn over a couple humps. wait a 5 seconds. try again it'll start immediately* it's much easier on your battery and starter. much.

(unless you have an intake manifold leak, then you may still have a problem to work around)

Sorry for the delay getting to your question. Yes the Cavi is up to 317,000 miles now. Everything still works fine. I'm going to need tires in a couple of months but other than that...Good to go!
