This is very true. The 'old but reliable Toyota' stereotype is actually a recent phenomenon. Before the 2010s Toyotas were known to have advanced tech AND good reliability.
kind of, Toyota of today are more reliable than Toyota's of 15 years ago. Yes, there are hickups like new engine in Tundra, but there have always been hickups - even when 4.7l was brand new. Heck M20A had issues when just released, etc, etc.
What makes todays Toyota better is that they will likely fix it in production this month or they already did, so the scope will be very limited. Toyota of 2000's took years to find out about issues and fix them.
All of that while still being the most reliable manufacturer.
