I have to say that this BS with the ignition switch has me scratching my head. It's just like the floormat thing. You shouldn't have 20 pounds of key rings and 50 keys on a single keyring in the first place!

Toyo made $5.2B, yes billion in the 4th quarter of last year.... profit....
Profit before people is what one article said, quoting the judge or politician...
They lost a civil suit that was about electronic issues that caused some of these issues...
TBD, this is just gettin going....

That is some f'd up sh*t. lol
You'd be surprised. When I was 19, my '84 Camaro had a stuck throttle at WOT or damn close. I was standing on the brake with both feet and barely slowing it at all unless I threw it in neutral. I only dared do that for a second or 2 because I was trying not to blow the engine as well. Fortunately it was a late night and no traffic but ugh..

GM only has to get 13 people killed, no biggie. From just down the GA forum page....http://www.nbcnews.com/business/auto...o-barra-n47151

Toyota has 1 (driver error) incident and all holy hell breaks loose.

Sad enough as it is, I find it strange that a police officer wouldn't think to turn off the engine, or as mentioned, put it in neutral. I have actually had this happen in an old truck when I was like 18 years old. The carb plates stuck after I did a WOT acceleration down the road. First thing I did was turn off the ignition. No more acceleration. Just seems odd. I do feel bad for those who died, regardless of the reason.
Only once? Geez. I've had the throttle stick WOT half a dozen times on me. A dodge diesel did it the other day. Sounded good but wasn't very good. Just popped it into neutral and shut it off.

I'm not as extravagant as U R - I could get close to 3 fill ups or maybe take her out to dinner if I'm feeling generous. What do I have to do to get my $125.00

I drive the road that he dies on twice a week at least, honestly there's no reason he couldn't have put it in neutral and been 100% safe, it's a long downhill stretch that's fairly straight.
Hell, he probably could've shut off the engine, turn the key back to run (so the steering wouldn't lock) and use the E-brake to slow down safely.

Just wondering could it have been one of those key less ignitions - I don't even know what that is but she says that's why they didn't shut it off - sounds better 2 me then just being stupid.

He could've put it in neutral and let the rev limiter do its job

Only thing I know is we're playing armchair quarterback and the only way to know for sure what we would do is get put in that situation.

Its a ploy by the government to distract the public from GM's failures. Simple as that. The government is the biggest shareholder of GM! (In one way or another)
