Default Down comes an empire.

So it has just been announced by the secretary or transportation that everyone stop driving their Toyota. I just had two friends call me for rides.

Well since Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood works for the company that owns the competition I think there may be a conflict of interest. LOL

He has since retrcted previous statement. Howeve it will put a blemish on their record for a short time i o believe like any major recall (the big 3 have all had thiers) in the end they will come away from this just fine

The big (lack of a better word, oh yeah small) three have had their issues but never a recall for a vehicle thats driving down interstate 95 and the car just failing to accelerate and bogs down. All due to a damn stupid design of coolant going through a intake manifold and knowing the issue on hundreds of thousands of cars and just giving you a "Sorry to hear about that problem we can't do nothing for you. Except let you purchase a new completely redesigned part because we knew the old one was junk. Oh and that would be 285 sir.
