    By “this week”, you mean 2003, don’t you ? 😉

      Ahah! Indeed it is a rather old video. I updated the sentence to make it a bit clearer!

    I was just teasing you, being a fan of the Top Gear series, this is one of the most impressive episodes.
    That car is as tough as my mother in law !
    Toyota has such an incredible quality management policy and it shows when you look at their cars reliability, maybe that’s a good idea for a future article here ?

      Yes, I totally agree as I have worked there for a couple of months. I guess I should write an article about their production system (TPS) which is the corner stone of Toyota’s quality management system, but my article bucket list is quite full, so it will take some time!
