Posted in: Dealers swamped by worried Toyota drivers in U.S. See in context

The current problem has been traced to a factory in Indiana that makes the faulty part. CTS Corporation - ELKHART, Ind . As part of my TQM (Total Quality Management) studies at TRW, I learned that Japanese manufacturers are able to machine parts to tighter specifications that American manufacturers.

So whose BAD is it?

The fact that the vast majority of people responding to this poll feel that one should not have the right to say anything that offends others is another good example.
