” .... fact that in 2012, Department of Transportation engineers determined that no mechanical failure was present that would cause applying the brakes to initiate acceleration.
I knew at the time the Toyota recall was a lot of political garbage. The Hussein administration and union thugs were the ones behind that BS. People should be put in jail.
We have already bailed out the union thug’s pensions. Are we going to have to bail out their employer again?
So Obama’s Car Czar decided to cover up everything? The current CEO shouldn’t be on the hook for this, she wasn’t even there. Obama’s people have there dirty hands all over this.
I own an old Toyota pickup and love it.
Have bought my last GM (Government Motors) vehicle. Last one was a Saturn VUE with CVT transmission. At 108,000 miles transmission failed, no longer economically repairable. Ran great, wife loved it but before they went out of business I got the shaft. Bought it with 4,000 miles on it from dealership. Was going to cost 4,500 dollars to repair transmission when it failed. It is still setting in the driveway at the farm. It’s probably been 6 years since it ran.
I am through with them. Forever.
Nothing will happen to these turds. They get away with everything they do. From the obama care to benghazi and the list just keeps on going. There is no leadership with the RINOs. So this is what we get.
Now the Senate committee is meeting and turning their burning gaze upon the poor unfortunate who was given the duty to be the whipping boy, or girl in this instance, the sacrificial lamb led to slaughter for errors and omissions made, while under the watchful eye of both the UAW and the government bailout specialists.
GM was, and still is, by no means “too big to fail”. Fail it should have, back when the bailout was first considered. Had the firm gone bankrupt, it could have been fully reorganized by now, and emerged as a smaller but much more viable entity, shorn of most of its most egregious liabilities. Sure, GM retirees would have had to pay for their own “Medigap” insurance out of their own pocket, but for most of the retirees, this is not a poverty trap. They may have to rearrange some of their retirement plans, but, hey, a LOT of us have had to do that since 2010.
Let GM go bust on this sudden new liability “discovered” only far after the fact, pay off all the liability suits, or get them voided, and sell the remaining assets (if any) to whatever bidder is willing to either make the enterprise viable, or liquidate it altogether.
Whatever “bailout money” the US Treasury threw into the effort is already gone, with no hope of ever recovering it under the current form of economics now practiced in the territory once known as “the United States of America”.
Of course, the economic system could be allowed to revert to what existed as January 1, 2007. But that may be asking a bit much of the ideologues who have succeeded in capturing occupancy of the White Hut.
It's not difficult at all with a lock-step fascist press in the pocket of the Regime.
Just what one would expect from an evil and very corrupt administration.
Our Republic is lost. My best hope is for portions of the country to secede.
Anyone who believes this BS needs to watch this video.
Ray LaHood: infamous islamist facilitator.
NASA did a cool DPA on the Toyota throttle assembly and control
As I recall, the fed gov undertook the operation of a Nevada whore house some time back with the resultant F.U.B.A.R. result. (pun?)
But, no matter how much I'd like to have something like a new Corvette, there's no way I'd buy a new GM car or truck.
I went from the "Chevrolet's the only way" of my youth to "No way I'd buy a Chevrolet" today.
GM took a bite from the apple, liked it, then ate the whole thing and now the poison flows freely in their veins, killing the good while rewarding the bad.
None for me, thanks. Trying to quit.
