I see that Toyota has now stopped sales of their recalled models. This is after they allowed them to continue stating that "new" vehicles weren't effected, but acknowledging that at sometime in the future they may have this problem. Wtf! Are you kidding, can someone say huge lawsuit in the future for manufacturer and dealers that sold the vehicles between the time the recall was announced, and when sales where halted. It shows an extreme irresponsiblilty on the both Toyota, and the dealers that continued to sell the vehicles. In addition a problem with the NTSB. If there is a safety recall announced and there is no known solution to the problem. The NTSB has to be allowed to step in and say stop until the solution can be figured out. I'm not for big government, however when the manufacturer and retailer continue to sell defective vehicles it's not good. Just waiting for the news story to come out about someone plowing into a group of people because their throttle stuck. Further more, IMO, Toyota's lack of acting quick to stop the sale of these vehicles will be what causes their market share to deteriorate. People will be flocking to dump their vehicles, and Toyota won't be able to rebound from the fall out.
We're not talking about "hey, eventually your radio will stop working, but we'll have the solution figured out before that."
Would love to hear others opinion about this.
