Ups and downs with: TOYOTA
From buying the LandCruiser FJ60 "surviving" the warranty until we owned a "worldworthy" 4x4-automobile
True hopes of having found a friend to overcome the hurdles and the harsh wake-up from this illusion
Following soon, e.g.:
"Episodes and incidents with Toyota companies around the world while driving from 1984 until 1995 through 58 countries on all continents as an ordinary LandCruiser customer without any preferences and special treatments", until we had unexpectedly contact for the second time with a Toyota distributor, this time in Malaysia.
"The three unforgettable visits 1994, 1996 and 1999 to the United Arab Emirates and the overwhelming generosity of Al-Futtaim Motor's CEO"
"Our arrival 1999 in Japan full of expectations after achieving already 127 countries and the unintelligible rebuff of the Toyota Motor Corporation to see us at all"
"The unchangeable determination of the Iranian Toyota Irtoya Co. in Tehran, to do something 'good' on our LandCruiser and the refusal of the American Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc., in Torrance CA, to assist us as we lost a wheel in Los Angeles and needed desperately help"
