    I mentioned to someone the other day this recall stuff seemed a little suspicious and very overly hyped. Time may tell if something fishy is going on or not, but now that the government is in the car business questions about their motivations will always exist.

    Excellent and informative post. Can you provide a link to where you found this?

    I'm not trying to be argumentative... I just want a link for some of my anti-gun co-workers who would happen to agree with all of this madness.

    Thanks!

    All I have to say is Remember the Audi issue. A whole lot of people exaggerated (read lied) and blamed the car for what they did by accident (or not).

    Time will tell, I bet $50 it is 90% hype. Less than 10% of the accidents were due to the car itself. That is my call. YMMV

    Protectionist conspiracy coupled w/yellow journalism campaign (pardon the term ;) ) to garner public opinion in favor of American unions and against the Japanese trade imbalance?

    For years now Toyota was the obama of the car industry. They could do no worng. When GM, Ford and chrysler had recalls it was head line news on the front page of news papers. The asain car lines would never get that. If anything was printed it usally ended up in the buisness section page 3. Toyota is now the 600 pound gorilla and there problems are starting to show.

    The federal government has a large role in regulating auto safety and thus in adjudicating safety recalls.

    I said back at the time, that the Obama Administration "takeover" of GM and Chrysler would create an obvious conflict of interest, when it came to the US government regulating other auto companies.

    So now whether Obama plays fair with Toyota or not, there is at least the appearance of huge impropriety here.

    This is just ANOTHER reason why the Obama bailout of the auto companies was a very bad idea....
