She makes the exact same claims some Toyota owners made. Rowing through the gears did nothing. Brake to the floor nothing. Emergency brake all the way on and nothing.

I personally think that's all bologna, or twisted reporting. She didn't row through the gears. She said she couldn't move the shifter. If the brakes don't work due to loss of vacuum assist, they don't go to the floor. Brakes on does SOMETHING, even if it might not be much.

Sorry, this is just my rant against the gossip effect, whereby the details of a story change every time it's told. I feel like by the time the news gets to me, I can't trust its accuracy, either through this effect or perhaps at least occasionally through intentional biases effecting the writing of said news.
