Agreed, an enormous amount of cash so 15 months from now someone can come up with a list of things which, hypothetically, if all the stars align properly and a bunch of highly unlikely things all happen at precisely the same time, could possibly cause a malfunction leading to unintended acceleration. But probably no solid proof that any of them have ever actually been a culprit.You know, the only thing I can think of is this... at 94 mph in your Prius, are you REALLY saving the earth? What kind of gas mileage do you get at 94 mph a Prius?
And on the note of the article, waste of money to have NASA get involved.
lol, my wife said the same thing last weekend. a prius passed us on I40 going at least 80. gotta love a hypocriteYou know, the only thing I can think of is this... at 94 mph in your Prius, are you REALLY saving the earth? -rockstate
what else do you expect from a liberal. come to think of it neither one of us should be posting. we should be working harder so all the welfare crackheads can get their april check :afro:What a waste, omg can he spend the money he prints faster????
You are 100% correct - its done all of the time in every big corporation.Anytime a corporation has problems, it's commonplace to hire consultants to come in and charge a lot of money to tell them what they already know. Call it spreading the blame, call it a new prespective, call it a fresh set of eyes. Whatever you call it, the practice is, done more often than I suspect the general public is aware of.
I couldn't have said it better. You're right on the money.It's no secret that the media frenzy has been pretty damaging to Toyota's reputation. So what better way to help them on the road to recovery, than to get somebody else, with a good reputation, tell the Feds, what Toyota has been trying to tell 'em for quite some time. Just because it's "NASA", doesn't mean that this team of engineers is any more capable than Toyota's. the big benefit is....it's a fresh set of eyes on the problems, and a new perspective from an unbiased group with a good reputation.
>No, they shut it down (massive lay-offs) for something like 18-24 months.Wasn't NASA still lauching the space shuttles even though at the time they hadn't figured out why that one had blown up?
