What did Toyota know, and when did they know it?

I think it's safe to say most people know I am a Toyota fan, but some of
the stuff coming out in the news recently is not settling well with me.
First there is the allegation that Toyota made a "deal" for a recall for
floor mats that is being interpreted as a cover up for a wider problem.
Now Toyota officials have been supoenaed to Congrees to testify what they
knew about the situation, what they did, and what actions were (or
weren't) taken.

It appears even to me that in an effort to displace GM as the world's
leading automaker Toyota may have done things not exactly in keeping with
their corporate culture. It remains to be seen which side of the Pacific
these measures originated from.

I have had a LOT of Toyotas, I like Toyotas, but I am disappointed. This
is the kind of crap I have come to expect from GM. And I think a lot of
you know how I feel about GM...

It almost seems the NUMMI experiment backfired, and instead of Toyota
teaching GM how to build a quality, reliable vehicle, GM taught Toyota
how to lie and cheat...?

Right.  It's GM's fault.

Help any?

BTW, I just heard on the radio, a spokesman for GM saying, "We have
ALWAYS complied with recall guidelines..."

ROFLMAO!!! RIGHT!!!!

Once again.  It's GM'S fault.
If you have a problem with that, then don't bring up GM when talking
about Toyota.  Pretty simple.
If you can't manage that, it means it's GM's fault.
Fine with me.
