As the court cases mount and the damages bills are likely to venture into the billions, Toyota must getting a bit worried about the overall effect on its long-term prospects worldwide.

I am going to add a bit to those worries with the call that all sales of Toyota product be suspended until such time the company can prove that its products are safe to use which, at this point in time, Toyota cannot.

In my view, Toyota has been treated way too lightly by regulators given the circumstances of some of the incidents that have, in some cases, cost people their lives, just because they were driving a Toyota.

Brake failures, unintended acceleration and numerous other faults causing damage, injury and deaths have plagued the various Toyota brands in the US, Europe as well as in other countries. The problem being that, while Toyota has promised a lot in terms of rectifying the problems as well as compensating those on the receiving end of these lemons, the company has come up with no evidence that things have in fact been rectified thus, at least, being a candidate for lemon status.

In the past, while a bit overpriced in terms of value for money, Toyota had a good reputation in terms of reliability and quality. Sadly though, given the recent circumstances, this can no longer be the case and as I mentioned, Toyota should prove that its product are safe.

Until such time, a 'withdraw from sale notice' or a customer boycott is more than warranted.
Like it or not.

And That's the way it is.

HIGHWAY ROBBERY. AUTHORS AND WRITERS RIPPED-OFF

It is so sad to see people with obvious talents being ripped-off by crooks, charlatans, dodgy individuals and companies and other forms of low-life who prey on individual lack of legal knowledge and weaknesses in terms of contracts and so-called marketing practices that often amount to nothing more than theft and, in the more extreme cases, fraud.

Top Ten Companies You Should Avoid Due to Commercial Insanity
Toyota

Advertising has always gotten me more worked up then it should. Something about the nerve they have presenting a product to you in a MOST disturbing manner and expecting you to buy it anyway. Here is a list of companies that makes me raise an eyebrow if not all out boycott their products.

Doomed To Search For Replacements!!!

Has everything in your life that you have come to depend on recently become extinct? Announcing today, the discontinuation of everything that you like. To like something today is to instantly doom it to oblivion. I guess I am just lucky that I have a low self esteem.
