so true. and they did the same with their exploder suv and its inherent
instability. vehicle rolls when it gets a flat, roof collapses and
kills the occupants? easy - blame the tire company!

You don't know the meaning of the words "inherent instability:"
(Change "invalid" to "com" for email. Google Groups killfiled due to spam.)
"0bama snoozed while oil oozed."

Which is precisely why I own a Toyota.
The article quoted says that 90,000 cars were exported from Japan, not
with bad engines but a stalling problem.
I'd bet a months pay that Ford does 90,000 warantee repairs for
stalling a month, and that they have for years.
Toyota is pro-active on defects, which I much prefer to US mfgr's
attempts to ignore issues and hope for the best.
I dunno, John, but all your negative posts about these cars makes me
wonder if a Tundra poisoned your wife and raped your daughter or visa
