Perfect. This is everything I would've called out.I actually got a phone call 2 nights ago from Toyota about the survey I submitted. They wanted to know if I had anything else that I wanted to add.
I brought up:
The gentleman on the phone was really nice. He said that some changes could come in 2022 since they've already been made aware of some of the issues from the 2020 model. Although newer issues or less common complaints could be changed in a later model year or not at all. But he was speaking about Toyota's general line up for the most part.
- Bump steer issue in track and spirited driving.
- Manufacturer tuning option or at least offer something through a reputable tuner.
- Also brought up the locked ECU issue on a "tuner" car.
- Wind Buffeting
- Android Auto
- DCT and/or Manual
- Talked about the GRMN rumors a little bit. He knew just as much as everyone else does.
- Fake Vents
- Called them out on their remarks about the vents being functional and tuner friendly and to educate the salesmen at dealership to stop saying that they can be made functional.
- Add a premium brake kit option (at least getting rid of the ugly setup in the rear)
- A91 Issues (Basically just do better on future "edition" cars)
- Omission of HUD unit for the A91 ($2200 part for the customer)
- Out of place carbon fiber mirror caps (and not including matte caps with all A91s sold)
- Floor mats not matching the trunk mat.
- I added that the extras didn't validate the MSRP of the A91. Especially since it lacked the pricey HUD unit.
If they did a survey for the 2020 models, I'm sure some changes will be making their way over in 2022 with more changes to follow in 2023.
From what I’ve heard, Tetsuya Tada and his team were testing manual variants of the Supra, but durability was a concern at first. So maybe they’re just taking their time making sure the manual was up to the task.Interestingly enough, things have been extremely quiet on my end regarding upcoming products. I think with the uncertainty of timelines due to the pandemic, Toyota (and other OEMS) are playing their cards very close to the chest. With supply constraints in microprocessors and other supply line causing big problems for a number of manufacturers, I'm not at all surprised if releases for niche products like Supra get pushed back a bit.
As much as I would love a manual in the '22, I feel like I would have heard something by now about it, but sadly that's not the case. We'll see though! If we do get a manual though, it will very likely be the ZF GS6-45BZ, which I am concerned a bit about from a torque-holding perspective, but we'll see!
I feel that's marketing nonsense. I always assumed they had a hard time negotiating the safety systems with the manual. Toyota claims everyone of their vehicles comes with all safety systems standard or something right? Its probably cost prohibitive for them.From what I’ve heard, Tetsuya Tada and his team were testing manual variants of the Supra, but durability was a concern at first.

For this vehicle aren’t they adapting BMW’s version of those active safety systems and re-branding them under the “Toyota Safety Sense 2.0” name?I feel that's marketing nonsense.
