I can't help noticing that the problem with runaway acceleration in Toyota cars affects drivers of automatic cars only. If my Toyota Echo started uncontrolled acceleration, I would just push in the clutch and move the gearshift into neutral: An entirely mechanical process under my complete control and the end of the problem. Another triumph for old-fashioned tried and true systems?

True that, but drivers of automatics can just push the thing into neutral too.ReplyDelete
I guess people ain't too happy about the problem in the first place. The chairman/ceo of Toyota accepted responsibility i hear, something certain big shots in government could do a bit of too, from where i stand.
Good luck getting anyone in government to accept responsibility for anything other than the lunch orders, MK.ReplyDelete
I prefer to drive a manual car.
