Many ppl have selective belief, they chose they things they wana hear and believe.
I've been driving 38 years on the road unfortuneately I didn't see much toyota car broken down leh. I have seen quite a number of conti cars, Korean cars and mini vans.
So far I've droven 3 toyota cars, the last 2 cars all the way up to 10 years until scraped have no any major problems except changes of suspension and aircon fan coil.
My 1st toyota camry come to almost 3 years warranty expired, BM offerred to change the suspension FOC and then when reaching the 7th years I changed the suspension again until scraped.
My 2nd toyota altis 1.8L also changed suspension once in the 5th years and changed air-con fan coil and alternator in the 7th years until scraped.
Now my 3rd Altis is keeping my finger cross and hope nothing major happen :)
I think is all depend on luck. For example, long time ago, I own a Sharp VCR that last me for 6 years without any problem. Then I bought a new Sharp VCR again but this time less than 6 months the recorder head gave problem and need to replace a new head, luckily still under warranty. But after slighly more than 1 years the head gave problem again. Then I decided not to use VCR and change to VCD Recorder.
Just my opinion :)
I knew friends who drove Korean car who claim they never break down and only change those wear and tear.
If one believe toyota is reliable, even owners around u who complaint abt ita reliability, u will still find excuses to defend it.
