Very disappointed in quality and cost

ReviewThis model year must have been the peak of Toyota's lack of attention to quality.
The engine oil issue is a complete quality AND customer service fail.
After suffering through that, in the last month I've had to replace the entire AC system.
Last year when the car was 4 y/o with 100k miles the AC started blowing warm.
Dealer did not find leaks, recharged, and it was ok for the rest of summer/fall.
This spring, same thing.
This time dealer found "lots of pin holes in the condenser".
Read: no trauma, just a quality fail.
I've never seen this and my prior cars were all over 200k miles.
Now, *perhaps* a result of the condenser fail, the compressor seized.
Total bill to fix AC: $2500
Best FeaturesFast, good MPG
Worst FeaturesBasic build quality
