Does the Aerospace industry really have a better track record than Toyota? Would a better "balance" provide better safety? The only way that is going to work would be so shift the controls development and/or testing from Japan to USA. Do US companies really have a significantly better track record that Toyota - enough to make a difference? To me, the whole thing just looks like bluster. There are no proven problems, but the lawyers want to sue Toyota and the only way they can do that is to show negligent engineering practices. Toyota has to respond so get panels of experts together to plan a new way forward. Now even if quality does not get materially changed, at least Toyota can say they did everything possible and are thus not negligent. [My note: could this article be partly attributed to a US cultural trait of feelings of gross superiority to anyone else].
