LA Times Toyota Floor Mat Investigation Discovers What We Already Knew

An L.A. Times investigation into the "fiery floor mat death" issue doesn't surprise us. Most of this can be summed up in the recall timeline we published last month.

Still, this is a deeper look into Toyota and their new safety efforts. The LA Times claims the company that got a reputation for quality and safety through engineering has seemingly shifted their game plan from rolling out evolutionary technical improvements to just blaming or paying-off anyone who complains. It's worth a read. (Hat tip to Brian!) [Los Angeles Times]
