Default NHTSA chief says Toyota was 'not truthful'

Washington -- Toyota Motor Corp. was "not truthful" with federal
regulators looking into sticky brake pedals, the nation's top safety
official said Friday.

That lack of candor, said National Highway Traffic Safety
Administrator David Strickland, contributed to the largest auto safety
fine ever proposed by the government.

In his first extended interview since taking over NHTSA Jan. 4,
Strickland also criticized Toyota for failing to disclose a software
upgrade on the 2010 Prius, and for taking "shortcuts" in its rapid
growth.

And now it will be for hiding the the defect on the lexus 4 wd
consumer reports found. The only way to teach these ****ers a lesson
is a 16,000,000,000.00 billion dollar fine.
