This idiot LaHood guy sure did mistep when he announced Americans who drove Toyotas should just not drive them till they were fixed. Not only is that ridiculous I have never heard the government stick their nose into a recall like that before.
Do you think he said it just to make Toyots look bad so Governement Moters could pick up a few of Toyotas customers? I'm sure they are salivating over this Toyota recall.
Is anyone so worried that they will be giving up their Toyota? We have 4 Toyota trucks in this family and are not thinking of downgrading to a Government Motors car.

WOW... I don't recall a Government official telling people not to drive a Ford in 2008. Remember~The cruise control switch would catch fire even hours after the engine had been turned off and the vehicle had been parked. 1993 to 2004 Lincoln and Mercury SUVs, pickups, cars and vans were caught up in the net.

Where was a government official then intervening and telling people to stop driving their Fords immediately?
Or what about in 1995, The release button of Honda seat belts either cracked or disintegrated causing belts to fail outright or causing them to trap passengers and keep them in the car after accidents. Three million seven hundred thousand vehicles were recalled and included the Civic, Prelude, Accord, Acura, Legend, Integra and NSX.
Where was a government official then?

how about in 1987 when GM truck recall was called. These trucks have been responsible for close to 400 deaths according to The Center for Auto Safety . "The problem with these side saddle models is the fuel tank is located on the outside of the frame, so in the unfortunate occurrence of a sideways collision, this GM pickup had a good chance of either exploding or bursting into flames."
Does anyone recal the government stirring panic with this one?
