Really, where does Toyota go to get their reputation back? The government and the media completely crunched Toyota over and over about unintended acceleration tied to an electronic flaw. Don’t forget Congress giving the Toyota leadership the business at hearings.
From Fox News.
Transportation officials and engineers with NASA say two mechanical safety defects previously identified by the government — sticking accelerator pedals and gas pedals that can become trapped in floor mats — are the only known causes for the reports of runaway Toyotas. Both issues were the subject of large recalls by Toyota.
Again, there was a previous issue with some Toyota cars concerning sticking accelerator pedals and floor mats. Toyota knew and was dealing with those issues, but the big firestorm was blaming an unknown electrical flaw which does not exist.
How much did this cost Toyota?
