    What do you make of this?

    "CHICAGO - THE US offices of Toyota supplier Denso were raided by the FBI as part of an antitrust investigation, the Japanese company said on Wednesday.

    News of the raid came as Toyota president Akio Toyoda was being grilled by US lawmakers about defects which have led to accidents and millions of auto recalls."

    I think all this Toyota bashing is to shore up GM. I mean look who has money tied up in GM and who is holding Toyots feet to the fire. The US Goobermint. Call me loco.:D

    Yea I thought so....If this is the case i'm sorry to say that the us "union" & Government Motors are somehow behind this....If you dig deep and hard into any business you'll find dirt. That is the way it is, there are soooo many rungs to a large corporation that even if the top head doesnt know it half the company can be into shady dealings. Either way i'm toughing it out with my tacoma and supporting toyota ( as long as they remedy the issue in an urgent manner )

    This shit is just getting ridiculous. Pretty soon the country is going to revolt against the all Washington corruption.

    They do domestic too. I sell Chevy parts and some of them are Denso. Corvette speedometer, Trailblazer O2 sensor, Cobalt steering motor, and I'm sure I'm missing some. Denso probably supplies every car manufacturer in the world with something. Some of the newer GM ac compressors and alternators are Denso also.

    But that would be for a good reason.


    Antitrust investigation? Is this for real? I can tell you why people by Toyota vehicles. They are solid, reliable cars that are better than most other vehicles in their class. That's why I bought mine. Antitrust....scoff....I needed that tonight :rolleyes:

    I heard Denso has been hoarding things in the bank...






    Now if I could only remember if it was the left bank or the right bank of the V6?:D
