    So Blue , how about telling the board how many years TM has held top spot versus GM . Your a smart girl , you can supply that info right ? Perhaps you and your MORON partner Scammy can figure it out . Once again , How many years has GM held top spot and how many years has TM held top spot . Who holds the record ?

    Since TM obviously admitted to fault in acceleration case Monday and with hundreds of 1000s of cases pending for residual depreciation due to their faulty electronics this should be like taking candy from Blue Mount Scammy Sammy and their deported canuck friends .

    Cobra : There are only three fools on this board , Scammy Sammy, Blow Mountain , and you . The article I re-posted has ZERO to do with sales being the deciding factor of a better car company . It simply states that GM is currently beating VW which in turn is beating TM in total China sales . No where does it state that any of those three is a better car company . You are like Obama , you make up lies to suit your posts . By the way , how's that 99 unpaid Scamry working out for you ?

    A U.S. judge gave final approval to the settlement of a class action lawsuit against Toyota Motor Corp by plaintiffs who claimed design defects caused some of the company's vehicles to accelerate without warning.

    The terms include direct payments to customers as well as free installation of brake-override systems in an estimated 3.25 million eligible vehicles, and the establishment of a customer support program, according to court filings.

    Plaintiffs' lawyers valued the deal at more than $1.6 billion, calling it "a landmark, if not a record, settlement in automobile defect class action litigation in the United States," according to court filings. The lawsuit was filed in 2010.

    Toyota, which has the third largest share of the U.S. auto market, announced in December that it would take a one-time pre-tax charge of $1.1 billion to cover the estimated settlement costs.

    Concerns about potential unintended acceleration issues caused Toyota to recall more than 10 million vehicles between 2009 and 2011. Plaintiffs said in the lawsuit that media reports and consumer complaints about the alleged defects caused the trade-in value for their vehicles to plummet.

    More than 22 million potential class members have been notified of the settlement, according to court filings. Owners of affected Toyota, Lexus and Scion

    The settlement of the lawsuit covers economic losses stemming from the alleged safety defects, but does not include claims of wrongful death, personal injury or property damage.

    That comes next !

    In the race to be No. 1 in the world's No. 1 auto market, General Motors is edging out its biggest rival, Volkswagen.

    On Friday, VW reported first-half sales of 1.54 million vehicles in China. Though that's an 18 percent increase year-over-year, VW did not pass General Motors, which sold 1.57 new vehicles over the same time period.

    GM and VW have long led the Chinese market, mainly because they were among the first of the global automakers to aggressively set-up production in China when it began welcoming foreign investment in the mid 1990s.

    As a result, the race to hold first place in the country has become a proxy for the battle the companies are waging to be the global leader in auto sales. Last year, General Motors was tops, selling more than 9 million vehicles, while Volkswagen was third behind Toyota.

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Noriko Uno was afraid of driving fast, often avoiding the freeway and taking the same route every day from her Upland home to and from her family's sushi restaurant. She had put only 10,000 miles on her 2006 Camry in about four years.

    So when her car unexpectedly accelerated to speeds up to 100 mph on a street with a posted limit of 30, the 66-year-old bookkeeper did everything she could to slow down, stepping on the brake pedal and pulling the emergency brake handle as she swerved to avoid other vehicles.

    Uno was killed when her car went onto a median and struck a telephone pole and a tree.

    Hers is the first so-called "bellwether" case to go to trial that could determine whether Toyota Motor Corp. should be held liable for sudden unintended acceleration in its vehicles — a claim made by motorists that plagued the Japanese automaker and led to lawsuits, settlements and recalls of millions of its cars and SUVs.

    Don't flatter yourself little boy , no need to find another story because this story will topple TM stock and you know it . GM , Ford and Chrysler will be sure that the dangerous Toyota story receives its proper due of daily press. I'm hoping it accounts for a year of bad publicity. Hey, they may even have to fire your sorry butt.

    To celebrate a huge turnaround Obama should invest this country's Social Security monies in General Motors.
    That and a special vote for a third term would make America strong again.

    As usual Sam the Scam is lying again . The little liar boy forgot to tell you that It was only yesterday when Ford announced the Focus was the most successful car in the world last year. Citing Polk global marketing registration data, Ford says they sold 1,024,410 units of the Focus in 2012. The same source indicates Toyota sold or leased 872,774 Corollas last year, but Sam who washes the Japanese company's cars has different numbers. What a Little Liar and how long before his Canuck boyfriend BlowMountain steps up to defend him ?

    Great marketing move by GM with a recall . They will sell more vehicles this summer by announcing that . Lets trade our old style Trailblazer for the newer safer , and more economical Equinox/ Terrain. Just make sure that no sticking gas pedal Toyota is behind you .
