Posted in: Cultures collide with Toyoda testimony See in context

I still support Toyota, though I do not currently drive one. They make a superior product, unlike the United States Congress. These angry congressman, with their own legislation, create plenty of damaged goods of their own. They should be looking into that instead.

Posted in: Rival automakers expect to gain from Toyota's pain See in context

Other non-U. S. automakers should be just as worried that the U. S. government under Democrat Party control will be just as eager to pounce on other big name Japanese and Korean automakers same as it is with Toyota. Possibly Ford should be wary, as well, since it did not submit to Obama's plans to have itself restructured and come under U. S. government control.

Posted in: U.S. gov't demands Toyota hand over documents on recalls See in context

Democrats in Congress are still upset at Toyota for being so competitive with American Brand names, and that Toyota sold so many cars under that ridiculous "Cash For Clunkers" program, which was intended to benefit Detroit. Their bashing of Toyota, however, might well benefit other foreign automakers, Japanese and South Korean especially, more than Ford, Chrysler, and GM.

Posted in: Toyota undecided on president's trip to U.S. See in context

I tend to agree that Toyoda may be making the right decision not to go to U. S. right away, and should not feel obligated to go to U. S. so readily to testify to Congress or meet other government officials. He won't look any good with 'brown lipstick' and as I think the last commenter referred to, he is not likely to sway positively in Toyota's direction the political forces at work.

My above comment is not to excuse Toyota for any of its failures to address safety concerns, of course. ostrichchaperon.typepad.com

Posted in: Toyota's president apologizes for massive global recalls See in context

It is interesting that the U. S. Government is so ready to pounce on Toyota over safety issues now that it owns controlling stake in General Motors. Could this be an attempt on the part of the U. S. Government to stick it to the competition, after having for so many years accused Japanese car companies of unfair competitive business practices?
