If sales is a good indication “Toyota’s Canadian March sales up 24%“, then there don’t seem to be much love lost from Toyota’s recent troubles.

    Well, but in long term, unless they agree to install smart break like the others otherwise still their market share would be sliced after recent scandal. I do expect the State would soon legislated the Act for installing smart break sooner or latter.

    Interesting comment. I suspect the test is what will happen to the sales once Toyota stops all the extra sales incentive.

    But here is a question for you and others:
    I don’t think the sales incentive will work so well if the company was Ford and the problem was as bad as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Pinto

    Ya, because the strategic product of Toyota is the hybrid car. Now even this model happened to be flaw and needa “Recycle”, re-branding would be a really tough job. Anyway, the recent scandal is indeed a severe blow to Toyota.

    I used to think it was a much more “severe blow” to Toyota, but I am less sure now. Will see what is the long term impact for Toyota.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
