Beshear Calls For Fairness In Toyota Hearings

by Rick Howlett on February 11, 2010

Ahead of congressional hearings into the recent Toyota recalls, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is rallying the governors of states that have Toyota plants.

Beshear and governors in Alabama, Indiana, and Mississippi have written a letter to congressional leaders urging them to look at the context surrounding Toyota’s troubles.

“There were sixteen million vehicles recalled last year, and not one of those recalls created the frenzy, the feeding frenzy, that’s going on right now,” Beshear said Thursday during an interview with MSNBC.

The governor says Toyota has gone above and beyond other manufacturers during the recall by choosing to shut down production until repairs are complete.

Kentucky’s Toyota plant is in Georgetown.

Toyota owners must seek justice. The company has run afoul of the law and shown absolutely no regard for the safety of their customers.

Toyota led a dizzying array of misdirections and lies and despite all the recalls and public apologies, must answer for its actions in court.

If you own a Toyota, you have a right to be there. Please visit this site to learn more about the company’s lies and denials spanning nearly a decade and what you can do as an owner:

You ambulance chasers make me sick! I’ve owned five Toyotas. Three are on the recall list. Never had an ounce of trouble with any of them.
