Incredibly bad parallel. I don't even know what to say if you think the situations are remotely similar.

yea but they tell you it can kill you before you buy them, so basically they are doing no wrong if they tell you before hand.

Toyota is ranked like number 7 on Fortune 500 list.

I'm just curious... If ur accelerator sticks, can u just switch the gears to neutral? Would that prevent the car from accelerating more?

What you would do is turn on your hazards, flip the transmission into neutral, and pull on the e-brake. But damn if you're going 90mph like some of the reports have been saying
....good luck

Toyota is currently rated Aa1 by Moody’s Corp., AA by Standard & Poor’s, and AAA by Japan’s Rating and Investment Information Inc...









However...

"the cost of protecting the company's bonds against default has risen. The price on five-year credit default swaps linked to Toyota’s debt widened by about 40 basis points between Jan. 15 and Feb. 9, as the world’s biggest automaker expanded its recall in the U.S., according to data compiled by CMA DataVision."
