As Toyota Got Huge they got cheap with their parts suppliers. Fat and Happy and Lazy!

It's part of the immutable laws of nature, something like the Roman Empire in 410AD and all the mighty that have fallen... But in a way, being bigger they become an easier target, and then you see them
struggling to survive... Poor Romans!

Wall Street and Washington are designing the cars these days. None of the Mfgs are about building fine cars. They or Wall Street are about making money. Quality or Customer appeal is second or last. You take what is available. Our new car has "carpet" thinner than our towels. The floor is hot from exhaust or something. The air conditioner is a joke at 70mph. The seats are thin, hard and small.The headrest force your head to your chest per NHTSA. Half the cost of new cars are for air bags and and brick design with pillows at each end. Performance is a joke thanks to NHTSA and EPA electronic throttles. We are forced to use an inefficient fuel that waste our environment and has to be subsidized by our taxes:ethanol. It is destructive to engines and gives poorer performance. Engines are tuned to burn inefficiently and waste fuel to "cut emissions." We can't buy rally efficient diesel engined cars because the EPA doesn't want them. Vehicles, that do use Diesel, are being made so expensive and less efficient that it is having a huge rippling cost increase to everyone along the line. They now require Diesels to have tank for Pig Pea(Urea)that adds huge costs to the purchase and use. Our Legislators take an oath to defend us from enemies both domestic and foreign but apparently that doesn't include Global Business, Banking or Socialists. The Oil Cabal pays practically no taxes in the US but it controls our government policies and Laws.

Thank you, man, I suspected something like that. Then some trucks are passing as ordinary cars putting everybody at risk --even those who wear the seat belt and have the air bag.

'It's No Accident: The Real Story Behind Senseless Death and Injury on Our Roads'
For more than 30 years, the government has been ramming cars into walls in an effort to make car crashes safe. The public has been conditioned to believe that seatbelts, airbags and more "crashworthy" vehicles are the best ways to protect us from harm on the roads. Meanwhile, the most basic strategies to deter dangerous driving and prevent crashes have been ignored. "It's No Accident" provides a rare glimpse into how the government got seduced by the promise of "safe crashing." It then examines the major factors involved in crashes today, including speeding, aggressive driving, distractions (e.g. cell phones) and drowsy driving.

The basic problem we have in this county is we allow people who do not know how to drive to teach others how to drive. ;)
I sent all of my children and grand children to the defensive driving school, at either Pocono and Dover race tracks. Costs a few bucks, but they are excellent drivers none of whom have had an at fault accident or been hit by another driver.

I just saw the other day two cars collide in slow motion. They were each reversing from their parking space, hitting each others rear bumper without ever bothering to turn around their head. It's that stupid.
I think we got two problems instead of one:
a) They don't know
b) They don't care...
