The Beginning of the Toyota Saga || “Christine”

Unsafe At Any Speed?

The story starts in August 2009 when a respected Highway Patrol Man, his wife, child and brother-in-law died in his 2009 Lexus which went out of contol, the accelerator stuck and the brakes not working as the poor family traveled to their doom at speeds over more than 100 mph.  In the 911 call from their vehicle the deceased can be heard describing the events as they approached their deaths, their last words before crashing and being burned alive were “everybody hold on” and “let’s pray”.  The vehicle burst into flames after hitting another vehicle, the end of the road barrier and a steel barrier; read the article here|| Toyota’s Recall Starts

The problem with Toyotas and Lexus’ is not some small incidental quick fix.   Don’t let any0ne try to downplay it.
