Or, could it be that Toyota is just grasping at straws now? I mean, we started off with the evil vindictive floor mats and now we have..... gasp... COS-MIC RAY-SSssss. (you have to say it in that scary movie announcer voice to be effective)
WASHINGTON -- It may sound far-fetched, but federal regulators are studying whether sudden acceleration in Toyotas is linked to cosmic rays.
Radiation from space long has affected airplanes and spacecraft, and is known for triggering errors in computer systems, but has received scant attention in the auto industry.
Ok. As a public service, since that is all we are as a country now, let's give Toyota other possible suggestions for why their accelerators are sticking.
I suggest that the gremlins of WW2 have returned. Or, by the time the chips came over from Japan, the warranty had already expired?
What do you say?
