    I have never worked for GM. The domestics have had serious issues in the past, but have you driven one lately?
    Toyota has been brilliant in applying knowledge of Dr. W. Edward Deming from Iowa. He taught the Japanese how to improve product quality, design, service, testing, reduce expenses and increase market share. He was known as the Father of the Japanese Post War Industrial Revival. Toyota also brilliantly applied what they learned from the U.S. Army Training Program, i.e. Training Within Industry. Last, they learned how to set up a national network plus more from their joint venture with GM called NUMMI.
    However, things began to slowly unravel in the early 2000's. In Japan alone in 2007, they had 5 recalls with the last one impacting 470,000 vehicles. Further, the first unwanted acceleration issue was reported in 2001 in the U.S.
    It just might behoove "Not Bob nor Dave" to do some research of his own, that is if he can get beyond his pride in wearing his Toyota loyalty badge - which I anticipate will never happen.

    Obviously Bob and Dave work for Govt Motors! And they way its written its probably one nitwit, not two. What nonsense. Toyota is going to continue to outsell and outmuscle all domestic car companies. Now that Obammy and his cronies are sitting on the board of directors lets see how long they can prop up GM and Chrysler. What a waste. Toyota = Excellent Cars and Trucks.

    WOW! So all the other "fixes" have been crap none the less. Why dosent Toyota just come out and say "we have a major issue and we will fix it". Doe they think the public is stuipd and cant see threw this? Wow how the mighty has fallen. Bob I agree I would not step foot into a Toyota. who is to say that this will even fix the problem. i have a feeling this is going to get worse. And people think the domestics have issues?

    Holy Crap! How can anyone even consider purchasing a Toyota Deathmobile anymore? Bland/ugly styling, numb ride and now an admission that their cars have "unintended acceleration". What an awful company.
