Default Toyota shares drift lower as death toll mounts

The death toll stemming from Toyota Motor Corp.'s sudden acceleration
problems is on the rise, according to data from the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration released Tuesday.

NHTSA said it has received almost 6,200 complaints from Toyota drivers
in the past decade over the acceleration problems that may have led to
as many as 89 deaths and 57 injuries.

The federal agency previously reported that 52 fatalities may have
been tied to the defects. The troubling figures have smudged the auto
maker's stellar reputation and have had a direct impact on its monthly
sales tally.

A NHTSA spokesperson explained that the customer generated complaints
alleging unintended acceleration have not been verified by NHTSA

That means every time someone got maimed or killed, 42 people came out
of the woodwork to complain. Sounds like a lot of whiney bitches to
me.

Happens with all such things. They even get hot lines now. Surely you've
seen the ambulance chaser commercials on US network TV?

It might be more accurate to say that everytime somebody /didn't/ get
maimed or killed, 42 people came out of the woodwork to take advantage of
cheap tort and an eagerly-vindictive government.
