|Toyotathon of Death|
David Letterman finds humor in the situation as well:
- Japanese government demands an investigation of a faulty electrical system in the brakes of the 2010 Prius after 14 complaints in Japan and 136 complaints in the U.S. (NYT)
- The U.S. Transportation Secretary states that it "took an enormous amount of effort" for the U.S. to "force" Toyota to do the safety recall related to the faulty accelerator, referring to them as "a little safety deaf". (Free Press)
- Steve Wozniak states that his new Prius has a "scary" repeatable software glitch affecting the accelerator that neither Toyota or the NHTSA has responded to his request for investigation. (CNET)
This is turning in to such a convoluted mess. Poor floor mat design, mechanical failure, faulty electrical system, and software glitches all affecting some millions of Toyota's newest and most popular models. Someone is loosing their job.
