Independent Analyst: Toyota Concerns Overblown; NOT LINKED TO ANY ACCIDENTS

Not even most Toyota dealers believe their government would intentionally harass Toyota, but it continues to be a highly suspicious situation, especially when you take into consideration what independent experts are saying..

AFP reports:
David Champion, director of automobile testing for Consumer Reports magazine, said the reaction to the recall was overblown.

"When you look at the statistics we are putting an awful lot of effort on a very small risk," he said.

"There has been something like 2,000 complaints of unintended acceleration in some 20 million Toyota vehicles -- it's almost like trying to find a needle in a haystack."...

he said a congressional investigation was an "overreaction" and noted that the "sticky" pedal problem that caused Toyota to halt production and sales of eight models last month was not linked to any accidents or injuries.
