    This is dramatic action, amid public outcry, because it includes two of the company's and the country's best-selling models, the Toyota Camry and Corolla. Although we were surprised there wasn't more media attention given to the issue, which is being blamed for a number of deaths, compared to other significant recalls from large automakers.


    typical Big Three hate from douchebags and the media

    Pretty much. Most people would still drive a Toyota for it's sterling reputation if there was a moderate chance that the car caught fire every time you turned the ignition.

    maybe this will turn things around for Ford, GM, with the highly rated, high quality models they have coming down the pipe. Chrysler, not so much :mamoru:


    but fucking toyota sackriders will continue to defend their japanese overlords

    What they mean to say is, when this type of shit happens to any of the big three, we hear about it instantly and more than once. Yet this has been relatively quiet in the media, especially when you look at the fact that Toyota used to pride themselves on their low amount of recalls (which they basically hid from the public by downplaying into service bulletins and the like).

    My mother-in-law said she wants to get a Toyota because of their quality. Apparently someone doesn't pay much attention to the news.

    Toyota has really fallen off from the reputation they spent years and years trying to build.

    Until 2000-2001ish they were good. After that they went way down the shitter, and I dont mean just a little bit. But nobody wants to believe it.

    I don't follow this all that closely, but hasn't it been demonstrated that they thought it was the mats, addressed the issue, then realized that it has nothing to do with the mats, and they need to take further action?

    Which basically affirms that statement... if this is a recall that they have had to do twice over, it should get much more attention called to it. And if the proper amount of attention was being called, maybe this would be some fact that I would be spouting and not a rumor I heard. :o

    the only thing toyota did wrong was admit that there was a problem, when in fact most other automakers have similarly styled floormats :o

    more likely, they fucking knew it wasn't the floor mats, but blamed them while they tried to find a solution. gov't prolly stepped in and made them stop selling them
