How can you say Toyota vehicles don't have solid foundations?

They are as safe, if not safer, than BMWs and are much more reliable.

Its not like BMW is anything special when it comes to safety.

Of course you can't compare driving dynamics/pleasure between Toyota and BMW, but please don't imply that Toyota makes crappy cars with lousy foundations, because that's simply not true.
An important component of vehicle safety is the braking system. Toyota has had some serious issues there.
