    Remember when Audi 5000(?) gas pedals were getting stuck in the 80s and people were getting run over?

    btw, don't people know if your accelerator gets stuck, you put the car in neutral?

    Or is that not the case with Toyota?

    It's a hit, but in the grand scheme of things not a big deal and they will recover from it.

    As long as they fix their shit and get outta this mess with the government I don't see why they can't turn it around.

    They have a great track record up until now and they still make decent cars. They are still 10x better than Nissan

    it's nothing they can't recover from. consumers should see this as a chance to get a great deal on a toyota instead of running away from them.

    i was thinking this was something that would blow over fast, but the fact that they have these internal documents coming out saying they negotiated the recalls to save millions is really making them look bad. if you have a problem and respond to it immediately, the public forgives quickly. if you have a problem and start negotiating, looking for workarounds etc, the public wont give you their trust back as easily.

    they will recover, but this is a pretty big dent to their image.
