I love that we live in a society that has major recalls all the time from mechanical, to food issues and yet we still have one political party that wants to do away with as many regulations as possible.

If you think things are bad now, just wait.

That's one entertaining headline. Did anyone else actually hear the song when you read it?

Read the headline in Fred Durst's voice first and wondered why subby neglected the "WHAT?!"

Now it's Dan Aykroyd's voice, the way God intended it.

LarrySouth: Psychopusher: Geotpf: I still don't understand why Toyota's market share isn't significantly higher.

/they don't tend to roll away, or catch on fire, or make rude phone calls to the local pub, or whatever

They did tend to have an acceleration problem, however...

The Toyota article referenced is a badly written effort to drum up business for an on-going class action lawsuit. It also blames problems in Toyota "breaks", which makes you wonder if AI journalism is marked reedie...


The problems are also a decade old.  Some (although apparently not all) of the problems were caused by dealers putting the wrong model of floor mat (for a different model of car) and it getting stuck on the pedal because it didn't fit right.

They could fix the problem entirely by selling vehicles with manual transmissions and parking breaks.

All these recalls lately really have them living up to that.

Which is really annoying because I like a lot of their recent offerings.


Ford.is great at a couple of things (if you look at the recall history):
1) Starting an engine fire
2) Vehicles failing to stay in park

My dad had a 1977 F150 he ordered from the factory.  It 1) "attacked" him one day by popping out of Park after he slammed the door while proceeding to open a gate; and, 2) the problematic carburetor had the float stick many times until the day it stayed stuck when my mom was driving it.  Gasoline shot all over the engine *poof*
