It's not Toyota's fault that they're as good as they are.
What we're seeing here is just another form of envy.

Maybe but it's Toyota' s fault for building all those recalled cars in the first place.

Toyota envy manifests itself in many ways.
Such a great success story.

Only problem with your comment is that the lady that was killed in the toyota was not driving a sua recalled car.

That wasn't my comment.
You are so confused with all your role playing that you've failed to recognize that you're responding to yourself.
See, that's what happens Root, when you play those games.
You lose track of who's who!!

What the heck are you talking about? The killed woman was not driving a sua recalled car. Just an fyi, you can sling as much dung at me as you desire, it doesn't stick. The way I see it is you can play your games and continue this folly or your can behave like an adult and share your thought and feelings. Sadly I doubt you will take that road.

Toyota rules the auto world......and engineering! Heres the deal....Soon as all the domestics quit lying about everything and each week bring all quality problems and concerns out front and center instead of sweeping them under the rug(we here about domestic quality problems everyday). Thats it!!!!!One more thing, they must prove all their claims about specs to the govt.

Was the car the woman was killed in a sua recall or not? The answer is no.

That's irrelevant.
The stupid lawyer tried to hang it on SUA.
He got shut down.
In doing so, he set a precedent which will be referred to in all forthcoming litigation.
That is known as a "Bellwether" decision.

You've always struck me as a disagreable person.
Dealing with reality seems to be a habit of yours.

Well if you could explain why you think this sets a precedent in unrelated cases, I'm all ears.

Just wait a while, until some of the SUA fiascos get going.
That'll be all the explanation you'll need.
That said, no doubt you'll continue to argue the point even then.
In the meantime, my advice to you would be not to seek a career in Law.

You are in no way shape or form in the position to give advice. Hell you can't even offer transparency, stay on topic, or provide an answer to an open ended statement you yourself provide.

True to a degree but not every lawyer is bad and they shouldnít be labeled as such. This is a case where the one bad apple spoils the others. Fat pockets and to that a certain animosity among what side of the fence you reside is more to do about such characterizations. This lawyer tried to sue Toyota to make a quick buck and thatís wrong. The family was probably told something false and the attorney went on and tried to sue for cash while in the back of his mind didnít give one care about the family or their situation.

There are no "bad" lawyers, but a few lawyers are more ethical than most.
This entire SUA fiasco is an invention of the Trial Lawyers Association.
It's a Tort Litigator feeding frenzy.

toyota is recalling another 803,000 cars for water that leaks on the airbags. People have been injured. I hope nobody gets killed.
