When you lie and cover up your problems it eventually comes back to haunt you. The Toyota "fix" for unintended acceleration was a complete ruse solely for the purpose of limiting the cost for repairs and do some damage control to their image. In the end it will do neither and result in additional injuries and deaths. Take a look at this NPR report on acceleration complaints by model year. It was very illuminating to see that for the 2009 model year Toyota has more complaints than all other manufacturers combined.http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=1242358...Another interesting sidebar is how Toyota's black box is designed with a proprietary technology than only they are able to decipher. How convenient that one of the primary sources available to unlock the truth behind these problems isn't open to anyone but Toyota. Another interesting read:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100304/ap_on_hi_te/us_toyota_bl...Toyota was within a whisker of being number 1 in US sales. Last month they dropped to 4. With the manner in which they've handled these problems they could presumably slip into obscurity, ala Audi, for years to come.Doug
