Big Mistake

I bought this car purely on the reliability of the Toyota brand. I have owned Toyota cars in the past without any reliability problems, but this was my first diesel car.
3 months after i bought this car, the clutch pedal started squeaking each time it was depressed, but i managed to sort this out myself with some grease and wd40.
The accelerator pedal and the brake pedal are to close together, i could go on but the main problem occurred after about 5 months i noticed that the car was taking about 45 mins before i could get any warm air, as it was close to summer i didn`t pay to much attention, as it started getting colder i took it to the garage, and after thoroughly checking the car, they told me it was the head gasket.
For this to a car that's just over 3 years old is a disgrace, for it to be a Toyota is unacceptable.

I won`t but another Toyota in future, unless they sort their reliability problems out.
