This is sure to raise a stink.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News, a former top lawyer for Toyota claims the automaker regularly hid evidence of safety defects from consumers and regulators, and fostered a culture of "hypocrisy and deceit." ....
Biller also said that Toyota's gas pedal was not the real cause of random acceleration incidents. "It's the electronic throttle control," he said. Biller said he based his opinion on information he'd learned while at Toyota, but could not disclose the evidence because "that would be privileged information."
Remember that Toyota tried to blame the supplier of brake pedals for its problems.
Why would anyone buy a Toyota at this point?
The Detroit Three had there problems, but they really seem to pale in comparison to this. If I had to choose between a 1970s Chevy that might catch fire easily during a crash, and a late model Toyota that just won't stop, I'd choose the 70s Chevy.
