    I wonder how many people are going to be exposed, seeing that most vehicles on the road today (2001 and newer) have data recorders in them.....

    Yeah I think more stories like this will help Toyota get back their reputation. It looks like the guy in Cali was at fault too for not wanting to put the car in neutral, b/c then he wouldn't have a big story to sue over.
