    They're making it more and more difficult to change your own oil.

    Samsung said it's not easy to curve glas,so I am wondering if that's the problem they are having !?
    If the rear window is not shaped properly there will be issues with the tightness and unwanted wind noise .
    Same goes for the carbon fibre hatch,one imperfection and the rear window won't fit properly!
    Tesla has it's issues with the cool but rather stupid falcon wing doors,so let's not hope Toyota is going through the same kind of trouble !
