Make it as cheap as you can, charge has much as you can. In many areas of American manufactoring this has become the corporate creed. We call it: Commitment to stockholders, Wall Street expections, Beating the numbers, Stratospheric saleries, Pressure to succeed and exceed. These principals are all good, taught in all our Business schools, but when they are applied by reckless management and become principals of greed there's consequences. And in the US one of them is you have to start rubbing shoulders/palms with Washington. They've been waiting on you. Sad isn't it.

Whats the difference? They'll be a team of lawyers whispering in his ear the whole time he's in front of a microphone.

He can bow all he wants, every time I see one of his POS on the road, I think of recall.

That will NEVER change.

They are wasting all this money on a bogus fix when it's in the electronics. Toyota is getting very nervous because it is about to be known that it is in the electronics and that's going to kill more sales than of the other recalss put together. Oh what a feeling!

That's right Moe that Tundra is a bad a** truck! I know about a thousand local American workers who can testify to that.Is'nt it funny that Toyota has been slammed by the media now that we have a Democratic president and congress? GM or Government Motors and the UAW guys see to it that these losers get elected so of course they're gonna target Toyota now.GM has criticized Toyota for closing the NUMMI plant in Califonia when they pulled out of the deal first.Toyota makes a great product and thet will recover from these recalls.

I will still buy Toyota!! Every company has their problems, and because Toyotas reputation was so strong it makes them look bad for the moment, but it will pass and other car makers will have to address their problems as well...the world goes on, Toyota will still be on top in the end. Tundras are the best truck by far, I agree....thats why they are so expensive.

President Akio Toyoda doesn't need to appear at congressional hearings next week in Washington, it's usually just for show anyhow. You really think our government cares with all the food, clothing, toys and auto recalls from foreign imports, NOT, just move all the jobs overseas and buy all foreign products to prove a point to the American worker.

Welcome to the norm now-a-days; greed. It's all about making the money and deal with Q&A when they arise.

I like how the economy is "getting so much better" and wall street keeps going up and up. It's going to be another bubble and it's going to burst again. Until Americans are back to work, we're not going to have any kind of recovery.

This is where the greed is coming into play. Companies have cut their workforce, but hey, they're making money hand-over-fist now.

Do they care? Heck no, it's all about the profit and the bonuses they get.

A stuck throttle can happen in any car, I was taught in drivers ed years ago on how to react to this. Unfortunately most drivers are more concerned with texting than actually driving now.

Turn the engine off and pull over the steering wheel won't lock like most people believe.

This whole hearing is nothing but political posturing. This president, goverment motors, and their UAW allies will do anything to make a point against the best automaker in the world. I shall never own another goverment vehicle! All automakers make mistakes and have to have recalls. Goverment Motors more than any.
