It isn't easy to recover from a public relations nightmare. Just ask Toyota. Shares of the Japanese auto giant have continued to struggle in the months following the worst of its recall woes.

More flawed information brought to you by JJ.

"Unfortunately there's no standard to way of assessing companies on this list. It is a good standard for company performance at the facility level, but it doesn't speak to activities at the corporate level, or any aspect of sustainability beyond environmental."

"So BMW, not known for efficient cars, gets a good rating, presumably for some of its other practices. But those practices, while admirable, are not as important as producing an efficient fleet of vehicles. Toyota is doing that. So is Honda. Ranking BMW so highly is therefore misleading to consumers."

And just what is flawed? There is nothing flawed. This is factual information.

Further, you fail to acknowledge the fact that investors are beginning to drop Toyota.

Itís one thing to present flawed information. Itís another to just say things and spew jargon.

Better yet, why donít you actually RTFA and then make your comment? You bust on the scene and post up some quotes of which arenít even in the article. Is this based on my comment about the sustainability issue? You are not doing a good job for your cause.

Might be time to bring the Volt into the argument. Lol-
