Safety issue vs Customer Satisfaction issue.

Seems to me Toyota screwed many Customers over the engine sludge
problems. I think that would be more accurate comparison to the GM
problem with intake manifolds (BTW, a freind of mine has two older
Buicks and has never had an intake manifold problem, so it wasn't a
100% failure rate).

The GM response to the uproar over intake manifold problems was almost
identical to the Toyota response to sludge problems - i.e., It is your
fault. If you took really really really good car of your car, you
wouldn't have a problem.
