Posted in: Toyota to recall 437,000 vehicles worldwide for Prius, other hybrids See in context

Branded You may think US cars are too good fine for you, but i think the rest of the world agrees with me. Try opening your mind a bit and see that there are many other good Automotive companies out there. BMW, Audi, Fiat, Skoda, volvo etc etc

As to the timeline of events over the past recalls this is from a Guardian article.

State Farm, America's largest car insurer, today said it warned federal safety regulators about a rise of reports about the accelerator fault in late 2007.

Toyota GB has said it knew about accelerator problems, which have caused its cars to speed up suddenly, from the end of 2008, but could not say when it received first reports of the Prius brake problem.

There was also anger at Toyota's refusal to admit a recall of the Prius was imminent in recent days.

Branded you do realise there are many other countries in the world that produce cars that also do the same thing and are alot more attractive and practical. US car industry got in the crapper because they produce bad cars. US cars are not popular overseas, Japanese manufacturers on the other hand are sold globally.

why anyone would want to drive an American is beyond me, ugly things and this was on the cards for Toyota, look what happened to Mitsubishi a while back. Toyota got too big for its britches, even now its still very slow to admit fault. Toyota has itself to blame and has to be very quick now to try to repair its reputation.

Why would someone buy a Toyota now, its a company that refused to admit fault and attempted to blame drivers for the increasing complaints. If the US Govt hadn't intervened then Toyota would still be denying it.

Posted in: How well founded is Japan's gastronomic pride? See in context

IMO its the combination of foods that we eat, a hamburger is terrible because the overcooked meat in a stodgy bun takes the body so long to digest before the body can even start to clean itself, japanese foods work alot more in synch with each other. Its not, what were eating its how were eating. EG having a salad before a rear steak is great the acids from the lettuce help breakdown the meat faster. Food shouldnt be over cooked, rarer foods are again more easily absorbed by the body.

Western food has lost its origins and combines too many things into one making it hard to digest and making the body work harder not allowing the organs time to do what they do best which is clean toxins from the body

the increasing over commercialization of Golf as companies seek to jump on the band wagon of female golfers will inevitably help destroy the game.

Immature girls buying into golf for the cheap accessories rather than any actual interest in the game is not good for it. This is a prime example

Posted in: Japanese automakers object to U.S. 'cash-for-clunkers' program See in context

im pretty sure GM invented the electric car far ahead of the Japanese sadly battery power and interest groups eventually killed it. As certain people on this forum are attempting to say that

Ford and GM want to let people get vouchers for cars that they have not developed or produced yet.

This is not the case as the article says the program has been successful and stocks of new models have been depleted therefor for consumers to get newer cars they may have to wait and would miss out on the cash for clunkers program. Nothing to do with cars they have not developed yet.

Posted in: Barrage of complaints force Miss Universe Japan to change costume design for finals See in context

here is an interesting article. The photo aint the best I think its OK. What's the difference between a garter and panties and a bikini? Wheres the moral outrage their. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/disgrasian/whats-the-difference-betw_b_249180.html

"Yeah, it's really pervy, but we are talking a beauty pageant"--an event where coating one's teeth with Vaseline, shoving one's tits up their chin with tape, and spouting ignorant drivel from the stage are all kosher, if not recommended. Jen also ventured that the outfit might even be evidence of progress: maybe the Miss Universe Japan people are boldly stepping ahead of the curve, finally recognizing that the world kinda views the Japanese as pretty... pervy,

LoL at the last part

think of ways to best do their jobs. wow what a concept who would have thought of something like that mind boggling.

kaizen encourages people to ask “why” five times. from my experience in Japan, Japanese people are the least likely to ever ask why.

several interesting things the cop covering the perp is that 6 shooter hes got? who uses them anymore except dirty harry? also if this perp

premise that terrorists armed with bombs and guns

has guns and bombs where are they how did the police disarm him from these guns and bombs and very few police for a group of terrorists armed with guns and bombs. i guess the guy stood there until arrested and put to the ground. no realism rather pathetic

Posted in: Japan completes missile defense system deployment See in context

yes and im sure itll work just fine not like Japan to hype their own capabilities or fudge data or take short cuts for the sake of kick backs or to implement a system wrong or build things in the wrong place like fault lines.

if it ever had to be used im pretty sure it wont work
