the young man: Blazej

You and your son are not forgotten and we will work beside you until such time as your 'Mother's Heart' is relieved and vindicated in your efforts to clear Blazej's name.

I have a confession to make. Lately, as I've been monitoring the weather on the sun, there are days when I know (thanks to NOAA, NASA and other space agencies and groups) that earth's 'getting hit'. Here is an example: http://dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/2010/05/recent-bad-oklahoma-weather-due-to-bad.html I know I shouldn't be this way, but so help me, I'm on the 'look-out' for Toyotas--on 'those days' as well as on all days!
I worry that the electronics in them will 'fail' due to electric/geomagnetic disturbances from the sun. I worry that the electronics will fail near high-tension power lines. I worry that Toyota electro-computer technology will just fail, period!
I especially worry when a Toyota is behind me and we're traveling at a good clip. It would be just my luck to get rear-ended by a Toyota whose accelerator is faulty or whose brakes fail due to no fault of the driver, but to COMPUTER CHIP/ELECTRICAL SYSTEM FAILURE due to OUTSIDE DISTURBANCES which NO ONE SEEMS TO WANT TO TALK ABOUT! Call me crazy ...you won't be the first...but I worry about this, for myself and for my loved ones.
There, I said it. Someone, somewhere is 'officially' looking into this. Toyota 'testifies' that they've made some changes since the consumer complaints have been brought to their attention. Hot off the press: "These changes are having a real impact, as reflected in the speed and decisiveness of our response last month when Consumer Reports identified a potential software issue with the vehicle stability control system in the 2010 Lexus GX 460. We immediately suspended sales and within a week we had replicated the test, developed a software fix, communicated our findings to NHTSA and initiated a voluntary recall." states James Lentz, President and Chief Operating Officer Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc, submitted to the Committee on Energy & Commerce, Subcommittee on Oversight & Investigations.

At other times, per the sudden acceleration/throttle issue, Toyota claims 'there's nothing wrong' and even goes so far as to suggest that TOYOTA DRIVERS are at fault by 'double and triple-stacking floor mats' (thus promoting accelerator malfunctions) Toyota says, "Our new SMART evaluation process has significantly increased the speed of our response to customer reports of unintended acceleration. SMART stands for “Swift Market Analysis Response Team.” At its core are 200 highly trained engineers and field technicians who can be deployed anywhere in the U.S. to investigate customer reports of unintended acceleration onsite. Under this new evaluation process, the company has completed more than 600 on-site vehicle inspections and our dealership technicians have completed an additional 1,400 inspections. We have submitted 701 field technical reports to this Committee, including on-site SMART team evaluations. These examinations are giving us a better understanding about the reasons for unintended acceleration complaints.Significantly, none of these investigations have found that our Electronic Throttle Control System with intelligence, or ETCS-i, was the cause."

I can understand that it's 'bad business' for Toyota to admit that there's something wrong with their vehicle computer technology. And I wouldn't expect them to admit anything unless and until there is sufficient documentation to do so. I understand that they'd rather do things quietly given that the implications of 'faulty computer hardware and software' in their midst.
the 2000 Toyota Solara Blazej droveBut human lives are at stake. There are a lot of Toyotas on the road and God help them if they're withholding information from the public. It may well be that a brave 'whistle-blower' will finally answer some questions for us, but who knows? Whatever the case, I'm on the look-out for Toyotas when I drive and you should be too.
I pray for the safety of all good people more trusting than myself who may or may not be driving Toyotas that someone may or may not know are defective and which may or may not be subject to brake, accelerator and other failure. I pray for those who have been maimed and injured and who have suffered the loss of someone dear to them, due to Toyota's reticence to get real and 'come clean'. The truth is out there. Until we hear it from the horse's mouth and verified by third parties, I'll be on 'Toyota Look-Out Patrol.
See you in the rearview!
