What you see is what you should GET!A small comment on being the # 1 auto maker,GM was there not too long ago,noe we have Toyota,as did GM their quality,safety,went south,is Toyota going to follow,does not pay to be #1 if this becomes reality,maybe I am harsh,too direct?Have owned 3 Toyota's in the past!

The photos are also, I would guess, taken well in advance of the start of sales, when the (Canadian) specs are not always definite and may be different by the time the car is in showrooms here, which would explain the disclaimers 'Manufacturer reserves the right to make changes at any time' and 'US model shown' or 'European model shown'.

I'd agree this is one of my two pet peeves with car ads. Other types of advertising have to post corrections when the item shown is not what is being sold.

My other peeve is ads that advertise how far you can go on a tank of gas as a measure of fuel economy... i.e. A bigger gas does not increase fuel economy.
