Default Toyota to recall 600,000 Sienna minivans

Yeah, another Toyota recall.

"Toyota said today it was recalling 600,000 Sienna minivans to inspect
for rust in the cable that holds the spare tire, adding to the more
than 6 million vehicles already under recall by the automaker this
year.

Toyota said it does not yet have a fix for the problem, which is
likely confined to 20 cold-weather states, including Michigan, which
use road salt in winter. Owners in other states can have their vans
inspected for the problem.

The Government *owns* GM. Toyota is the biggest competitor.
Lahood is an ex UAW union dog.
No rocket science involved

Yeah... it's all a government conspiracy.

No, but that's the way the government approaches problems. When you get on
the government's radar, you are in trouble until the government gets
distracted to something else. Realistically, Toyota cars are pretty damned
good. It is not likely that any other car manufacturer would do as well as
Toyota under the current scrutiny.

However, all this micromanagement by the government is going to get Toyota
to produce a much better product, and Toyota will really kick ass in the
future.

Yes, when you piss off the NHTSA they start to look at all you are
doing. Toyota has lots of dirty laundry.

I don't know that the second part of that is true. Some manufacturers
are very cautious with safety issues and very generous with repairs
when they see a major issue. Toyota is obviously not the only one who
hides problems though.

Maybe. I question whether a company with this embedded corporate and
cultural attitude can ever change. See my post on their actions way
back in 1986 when they were already like this - but it just didn't hit
the level of widespread deaths so there wasn't an uproar. Large
companies with longstanding company cultures don't change very fast
and when you add in the "people culture" issue, I don't really know
that they'll ever change.

But, at this point all they produce are a bunch of boring econoboxes
and sedans, so who really cares. If they bring back the rumored Supra,
maybe import the Aygo to the USA, or perhaps follow through on the
Subarota, they might gain some interest. They really should bring back
the 2000GT as a retro, but they don't seem to have much imagination in
management these days.

There *are* problems with Toyota's upper management and the same ones exist
within Honda IMHO. If you want proof, look up what happened last year in
Formula one and How Toyota's done in F1 for their period in it. These probably
don't have any affect on their road cars per se, but certainly would have
an affect on any response to such actions by the US Govt.

No fix for the problem? Really? Simply switching to a non-stainless-
steel cable should do it...?! Or hey, just coat the cable with epoxy
or something...
