Toyota Going the Way of GM ?

Well, at any rate, they have already given up the world #1 ranking to Volkswagon, after the latter's acquisition of Porsche and big gains in the China market.

And there have been insinuations that the root of Toyota's Sudden-Acceleration-Syndrome has nothing to do with seat mats, but with dud electronics. Modern cars accelerate through the medium of a computer. Whether true or not, I can't say, but this rumor is definitely something I've heard from so-called Joe and Josephine 6P.
