Nice location on that oil filter Mr. Toyota

I was blown away yesterday looking for the oil filter on my wife's 2005 Rx330, the darn thing was hiding under the exhaust manifold with almost enough room to slip in a shoe horn. Nice going Japanese engineers, I bet that thing looked great on a workbench in Tokyo but for serviceability, can you next time put them with easy access from the bottom like most companies. This might be my first and last Jap car, I'm not that impressed yet as a mostly GM car owner.

My 2002 is in the same place, why they did not mount it remotly is beyong me. Really ruins a good car.

Toyota??? Good car???? Those are words that shouldn't even be in the same paragraph, much less the same sentence!

Keep in mind, they lost the war, there's a reason. Now they're trying to get even. ;)
