Toyota Called to the Carpet

leave a comment »

As a Toyota owner and admirer, the recent quality issue has disappointed me, as it has millions others. And, more than disappointing, it has endangered lives. Just a couple comments.

First, how like a Greek tragedy that Toyota suffers this stumble almost at the exact moment it had become the largest and most-respected car company in the world? But, this fall from the peaks of grace seems to happen again and again and again.

Second, I see the long arm of the unions on Secretary LaHood’s tough stance on this issue. The unions have not received as much attention or prominence as they expected from this Administration. If we could peer behind the curtain, I bet we would find the unions hammering on the Administration to come down hard on Toyota.
