Its great to see toyota finally being responsible after being fined record amounts for not being responsible. Toyota says this repair for the jacked up water leaks is free of charge. This is moving forward.

P Spoofing is a systemic problem here.
Root sits in the middle of that, but avoids responsibility.

This Toyota situation doesn't come close to Ford's latest embarrassment.

Ford has paid the top penalty of $17.35 million to settle government allegations that the company was slow to recall nearly a half-million SUVs last year.

The fine announced Thursday is linked to the July 2012 recall of nearly 485,000 Ford Escape SUVs from the 2001 to 2004 model years. The SUVs, equipped with 3-Liter V-6 engines, were recalled to fix sticking gas pedals that could cause crashes. It's the maximum fine that safety regulators are allowed to levy against an automaker.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration contends that Ford knew about the problem in May of 2011, but failed to take action until the agency began investigating the Escapes in July of 2012. The probe was started after an Arizona teenage girl died in an Escape crash in January of last year.

Ford set the new record Root.
You're too busy with your IP Spoofing game.
This anxiety you have about Toyota is clouding your judgement.

This just released...

This latest toyota recall should be named the spider recall and it should be fixed promptly for the safety of camry owners.

Looks like Ford is more "Out of control" than Toyota just now.
In spite of Root's efforts to deceive us otherwise.

Good news is that Old Rootsy has shelved his IP Spoofing campaign for the moment.
(But we're not holding our breath yet--he tends to go bananas when things get too rough for him)

I'll never forget the time when toyota racked up 48.8 million in recall failures and turned around and earned another 17 million for not recalling another recall responsibly. Now toyota recalls are as common as broken windshield wipers, leaking water, and exploding airbags.

We're not going to let you forget your IP Spoofing shenanigans Root.
Some of that nonsense was really ugly.

Question for onlookers....
"Would you buy a car from someone with the reputation of a Root?"
Maybe we should have a poll?

The Lexus IS 250, is said to be "neither sporty nor luxurious" and "has the worst road test score posted by any Lexus sedan in recent memory,"

This and the exploding airbags and broken wipers are not positive signs.

⚑I firmly believe that the Japanese and Big 3 auto makers have done a role reversal over the last 10 years or so. The Big 3 are producing the best cars they've ever made during my lifetime (I was born in 1961). Great designs, great technology and FAR higher quality and better designed interiors. AND they've increased their model cycles. In contrast, the Japanese have adopted the old Detroit model of cost-cutting and riding on their reputations. The Japanese used to have an all-new design of a given model every 4 years. That's slipped to 6 or more years. They're behind on direct-injection technolgy and infotainment. AND their "all new" models more often than not are re-using platforms and drivetrains. The 'new' Tundra is nothing more than mild refresh of the existing truck. Same for the new Corolla. Ditto for the new Accord. The new models are little more than a new top hat on the old platform.
I just get the feeling that the Japanese are letting themselves slide downward while the Big 3 is making great strides upward. And I was the biggest Japanese fan and D3 hater you ever saw for most of my life! I used to steer friends away from buying a domestic car. Now I'm trying to convince them to take a fresh look at the D3 again.

We know that some here feel Toyota is the evil empire.
But this is a bum rap.
I hope Toyota appeals this ruling.
