Poor Toyota

In the nearly five months since it launched a string of recalls to stop its cars from accelerating out of control, Toyota Motor Corp. has been adamant about one thing: It's not the electronics.

Company officials first put the blame on floor mats that could entrap the accelerator, later amending that to include gas pedals themselves that could stick.

But they have vigorously asserted that there is no evidence of a glitch in the electronics or software that could cause cars to malfunction, a "ghost in the machine."

Some independent safety experts, congressional investigators and others are just as certain that the risk of an electronic flaw is being dismissed by Toyota without an adequate examination.


Toyota no longer has any credibility. The first step in getting to the bottom of these various safety problems is to make sure that Americans can independently read the Toyota "black boxes". The right to sell cars in America should be suspended until and unless Toyota gives up the code.
