Toyota and Lexus and the ghosts that still haunt them

It was only about 7 years ago or so, but with time, memories fade but the only thing that doesn't change is that people died in terrible car crashes, and they can never be replaced.

Initial reports came in as a 'runaway' car - how does this happen? The Toyota motor company explained that the carpets may have been at fault initially, but that was proven to be a misguided and covered up response. Auto manufacturers know when problems exist....

Reports continued as complaints and deaths started to pile up on the nation's highways. Toyota settled the first nationally broadcasted 'death ride' by a consumer, but under the condition of the settlement, they said only, there was nothing wrong with their cars? Here's a Prius that 'ran away' by itself. It wasn't even turbo charged, and that's a good thing.
