    This is bound to pay great dividends to the company.

    Good thing they don't put all their eggs in one basket and actually have liquid cash reserves to settle any forthcoming lawsuit.

    They were I believe, it was supposedly caused from a parts supplier also in the US or someshit. None of the Japanese built models were announced in the original recall.

    yeah but it was because of the material used for the part, toyota is who specified that material, not the part supplier

    yea i remember reading an awesome article a few years ago about toyota japan, their work ethic, and operational procedures. if i remember correctly, they don't have any managers or supervisors. everyone checks everyone elses work and if they see any problem, they stop production and resolve the issue right then and there. they take a lot of pride in their skill and quality of work and everyone is held responsible.

    i'll try and find it

    We practice kaizen at the company I work for. It really is an impressive concept.
