With the sales struggle of the new Tundra this could only make it worse
That's a false statement. Dream on.

If you guys check the May sales figure you will see that Tundra sales have nearly doubled. If you call that struggling I am sure Toyota doesn't mind to struggle. Right now Toyota is on top of the world and the Tundra incident is just a minor hiccup.

"Right now Toyota is on top of the world and the Tundra incident is just a minor hiccup."
I agree they have peaked as an automaker, but they have been slip sliding away in the last 2-3 years with reliability/product issues. The thing thats exciting about the truck is that its new with a new engine. The engine was said to be descent but only time will tell if it will hold up long term. Other than the trucks styling being a big eye sore, in reality it comes up short compared to the domestic offerings in almost every catagory. Take away the mediocre engine and you have an ugly truck with a weak frame, average ride, poor handling, questionable rear-end traction, below average interior, to name a few.

"The majority of auto manufactures buy their parts from different suppliers including engine parts,"
Many of Toyota's suppliers are wholly owned by Toyota, so it would be interesting to see just who this camshaft "supplier" REALLY is.

I agree, they are butt-ugly, but fortunately I never see them on the road. I think I have seen one, maybe 2. If they were as prominent as the F150 or the GM twins, I would gouge my eyeballs out.

Thank you for your insightful post. I am sure mighty GM and even mighter Ford and Chrysler has nothing to fear from Toyota.
