Really? $1.8 billion to settle something that was nothing more than mass hysteria and a few susceptible individuals?

And that's why I'm never going to make a product. Or own a restaurant. Or deal in the realm of patentable technology. Lawyers.

I know, right? Didn't they ever watch fight club? They should have avoided the recalls entirely and just paid off the few people who actually experienced a problem.

I still suspect the driver on that one. There are crazy people in this world living in their own little fantasies, wishing to be victims and not wanting to go to work today.

Unintended acceleration my shiny metal ass.

Yeah, when a car accelerates so uncontrollably that a cop can't control it, is mass hysteria.

I believe Toyota retroactively examined a number of incidents and determined that less than 5 of them were actual problems with the car, and that the bulk of them were driver error- and in at least one case, the driver did it on purpose and was charged with fraud.

Wow nearly $2B because granny can't tell the difference between the brake and the gas, or figure out that keeping the floormat in place be might be a good idea?
