As do I!!

I thought this was supposed to be a better engine in terms of reliability. I dont want to be the first to blow the horn here but, I have seen one owner post about a CEL and car taking 3 cranks to start, and another owner has his stalling out. Dont get me wrong I dont expect to get the reliability that I got from my 2001 GTS celica but, come on.... CEL in the first couple weeks, and stalling in the first couple weeks!! I hope they iron these kinks out before they make there way to the greater Denver area, otherwise im going to have to rethink my options. This car is not only going to be for fast/fun driving, it is going to be my daily driver. I cant be in the garage every weekend. I would like to see others thought and insights on the long term reliability.

I don't think these problems are caused by the engine. As in Raptor's case, he had a bad MAP sensor. I think once everyone gets them into the shop we'll start hearing some information. Until then, all this is speculation. I wouldn't make any decisions until you get some more information.
