As Toyota’s troubles continue to mount . . .
You might remember a blog entry I posted a few weeks ago “suggesting” some untoward behavior on the part of our Glorious Leader’s administration and the safety — or lack thereof — allegations of Toyota’s entire fleet of vehicles. Well, it appears I’m not the only one with those types of conspiratorial thoughts on this issue.
Something else ocurred to me this morning in a moment of clarity while waiting for a train to clear my path: Why not Lexus? Lexus is Toyota’s “top shelf” brand, right? Is it THAT much better than your garden-variety Toyota, that they intentionally outfit them with better-quality gas pedals in them? My guess would be that it’s the exact same part, the same way you can’t tell a Ford Edge and a Lincoln MKZ apart aside from the tail lights; or a Volkwagen Touareg and a Porsche Cayenne; or a Mazda 6 and an Infiniti G35. . . . . . I could go on here, but I won’t. Yet, not a single Lexus is part of any of the recalls? Is it just me?
