In other words, keep would-be Toyota consumers in fear of uncertainty from buying their cars.

“drawn no conclusions and released no data. We will follow the facts and inform the public when our investigation comes to an end.”

Translation: we already know most of what's causing the faults but we won't tell Toyota what they are. In the meantine we urge Americans to buy American.

So no conclusion means not Toyota's fault but we won't admit it so people will buy American cars. Tell me something I didn't know when all this BS started.

Another article states " findings appear to support Toyota's position that sudden-acceleration reports involving its vehicles WEREN'T caused by electronic glitches in computer-controlled throttle systems, as some safety advocates and plaintiffs' attorneys have alleged

Funny how the whole unintended acceleration story has subsided here. Newspapers, TV, all the media covering this constantly. Everyday there was a report of a near death experience. And then...nothing.

Good point ! Because there was NOTHING ! . . .LOL . . just another GM marketing strategy backfiring . . . . . . Stats show that complaints @ Toyota hit 1500 in January 2010 ( just mass hysteria) and plunged to neglible figures of @ 100 In July

In the meantime the Prius continues to sell like hot cakes, for better or for worse.

Instinct tells me everyone's eyes switched to the oil rig explosion and subsequent 'spill' (= gusher).

GM should name their next car the XENOMOBILE and market it to people who just dont like furners. That way American people can have their own cars without having to slime foreign car makers for what appears to be no reason.

Does anyone wonder still if we are in the era of Rupert Murdoch media spin?

I knew it! I just bleepin' knew it.

Highlights from the Wall Street Journal on the subject:

"The results suggest that some drivers who said their Toyota and Lexus vehicles surged out of control were mistakenly flooring the accelerator when they intended to jam on the brakes."

And from the American Pundit article:

"Total fatal accidents confirmed by the federal government to have been caused by a Toyota error? One."

And who was the poster here that constantly insisted this was some sort of eleborate conspiracy on the part of Toyota? Oh, yeah. Branded. Who oddly hasn't been around here since April. Darn. And I had a heapng plate of crow to serve him...
