Why not? Toyota sells vehicles that typically have better resale value than domestics. The Toyota sales people push that point when they sell them.

I could have bought many other vehicles that were better equipped and cost less than my truck but I bought this truck based on dependability and resale value. Both of which are in question.

So, it's OK to sue someone because you made a bad investment?

Quick, everyone who lost money on their houses sue all the people that are going bankrupt, cause they are the reason your house is losing it's value

Don't take this the wrong way: Your statement is retarded. Possibly even retarted. I don't think it's bad enough to be retired, but it's close.

Toyota knowingly covered all this stuff up and it is hurting the resale value that otherwise wouldn't have been effected. They will probably win. People can sue for anything these days, and actually win.

Knowingly covered what up? A problem that doesn't exist and has been entirely created by the media and the stupidity of the public? How the hell do you cover up something that doesn't exist?

You are exactly right, and a judge will probably agree. I see all kinds of crazy shit go on in court that makes you shake your head and go WTF.

Yup...if you can spill coffee on yourself and sue McDonald's because you didn't know "hot" coffee was "hot" and get a million dollars, then yes Toyota will be paying an out of court settlement.

Sounds like another warning label is in the works to inform the stupid people that the value of there investment MAY go down. People need to understand that making an investment involves RISK!!! Wow, these are the people that really piss me off!

Good point. These are the kind of people dumb enough to eat those little packages they find in new shoes.

No, people need to understand that a car is not an investment. I think that's where the real problem is.

A problem does exist, toyota has acknowledged it. They should have just owned up to it first and fixed stuff the right way.

First it was the floor mats, then the pedals, now there are ECU updates.


An internal Toyota document dated last July says the company saved $100 million in 2007 by getting the government to OK replacing floor mats in 55,000 vehicles as a solution to sudden acceleration complaints.
It's listed under "wins for Toyota — safety group" in the report, which is among documents obtained by a subpoena from the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
That and other references to saving money on safety issues raise the question of "whether Toyota was lobbying for less rigid actions from regulators to protect their bottom line," said Kurt Bardella, spokesman for the committee's ranking Republican, Darrell Issa of California

Read it for yourself. its even highlighted for the slow people.

No, if you are more likely to die from a shark attack than from a "defect" in your car, the problem in your car does not exist. It is a statistical aberration that is impossible to remove from the system no matter how good your quality control is.

Let me explain how this "problem" came to be in 5 simple steps:

1) One Toyota vehicle in California (land of the eternal idiot) accelerated out of control and crashed, killing four people.

2) There was a dramatic 911 phone call that the media could play for ratings.

3) Toyota has a lot of exposure and is one of the best known brands on the planet. By running anything with "Toyota" in it, media outlets are guaranteed views. Politicians are guaranteed attention. Everyone piles on.

4) Politicians and television talking heads endlessly talk about this "problem" which does not exist mathematically, enough so that suburban housewives and ignorant American TV audiences actually start to think it's true because they've heard it on TV so much.

5) Toyota, realizing that people are too stupid to understand that a problem does not exist and that they will be skewered in the media, just say they'll fix the problem rather than point out that the vast majority of their customer base is poorly educated and unintelligent. After all, they need them to keep buying cars. This is the most cost effective solution.


Believe this crap if you want it. Over the past decade, Toyota has sold more than 15 million vehicles in the US. There have been *potentially* 34 deaths due to "unintended acceleration". Many more have died in vanilla auto accidents.

The risk of DRIVING is higher than the risk of unintended acceleration. THE. PROBLEM. DOES. NOT. EXIST.

This is a made up problem to sell air time and let some congressmen pretend to be doing something. The sooner everyone starts ignoring it, the better.

Nice quote from the article:

Quote:
"However, based on news reports, plaintiffs do not believe that Toyota knows what is causing acceleration. Plaintiffs tried to sell the car and were told its value is 20 percent less than what it was worth less than six months ago," the lawsuit alleges.
Haha, OK, isn'tit common for vehicle to lose value 6 months down the line?
