Things happen now and then, we're all human. It's what warranties are for. Going to need more information about what's going on though

Sounds to me like mass production for profit
Uh, so is like 99% of the vehicles manufactured on this planet.
Mistakes happen, even robots make mistakes. The Jeep Dangler suspension arm falling off was attributed to bad robot welds.
Need more info on if this is a systemstic problem or a one off.

Pretty poor craftsmanship of Toyota if they claim that the Car is hand built. I doubt that the Lexus LFA has missing parts from factory
500 $300k supercars vs 25k+ $40k cars . Pretty bad comparison. I get your point but things happen. Should we hold them against it? Yes. But again, that's why there's warranties. Hand-built means more potential for error than a robot. This is 1 car out of....how many? There's a lot more that needs to go into this than one guy posting a pic to a Facebook group. Just seems like one guy in QC let a car slide by. I've seen this plenty times in the guitar/bass industry.

From what the guy posted on face book was that there was no listing for the clamp. No one makes the clamp Toyota couldn't even get the clamp. Sounds like the only fix is a new turbo. I don't know about you guys but if had to buy an aftermarket turbo for my brand new less than 20,000 miles I'd be pretty choked, just saying

Well that's when the OEM should warranty a new turbo. I don't remember what Toyota powertrain is but powertrain is usually longer than the 3 years/36k miles so they should still be in powertrain warraty wether it's the original owner or not. Don't see why they'd need an A/M turbo unless it's just a shady dealer
