My Toyota Won’t Stop! (Whatever.)

20 03 2010

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the Toyota acceleration problems and all the recalls in the last month or so.  Now that all that stuff is out in the open there are way too many stories about uncontrollable acceleration even after the recall repairs are done.  I get the feeling that the toyota recalls are becoming a convenient excuse to cover up bad driving.

Consider the man in San Diego who couldn’t stop for the police because his car was accelerating out of control.  Ummm, really?  Or the woman in New York who ran into a building because her car wouldn’t stop.  Maybe you’re just a bad driver, ma’am (try the pedal on the left next time).  An investigation showed that the brakes were never even applied in the latter case.

There are definitely some legitimate cases out there but much of it seems a little too convenient to me.  Grow up, people.

Also the recall had been out a MONTH. Why haven’t they taken their cars in to get it checked out? Really, I agree with you quit making excuses.
