How can Toyota claim to make the 'best cars in the world'?

Hello - can you tell me how Toyota can claim to make the 'best built cars in the world'? It is not making this claim in the UK, only in Ireland. Even Carlsberg isclever enough to say it is 'probably' the best. There have been a number of Toyotas in our household and they were as troublesome and any other comparable model.

Many thanks

Should I stay away from the Espace and this older Discovery?

I need a second hand seven seater. Have seen a 2005 Renault Grand Espace automatic petrol, 95k miles, leather priced at €3,850. Fallen in love with a 2004 Land Rover Discovery 2.5-litre, auto, diesel, leather, 150k miles too. Price €5,250. Would I be crazy to go for Land Rover? Difference in tax isn't too big. Two trustworthy mechanics told me Renault give expensive problems but didn't ask about Land Rover!
