Japanamerica via LA Times: Tiger and Toyota

"When Toyoda made that sort of apology in Japan, Roland Kelts, from the University of Tokyo, pointed out to ABC News that the executive had bowed very deeply. 'The deeper the bow,' said Kelts, 'the greater respect you show, and quite literally you are exposing the back of your neck. In samurai days, you were offering your head, which could be cut off.'"LINK

Toyota & Honda dropped the ball on handling the recalls , they should have came forward with a full disclosure. Instead of waiting for a huge media blitz and tons of public pressure. But Toyota & Honda are not alone , I never seen so many car companies having recalls all at the same time. I had no idea my car which is not even a Toyota or Honda, was affected until I searched on and found I had a bad Anti Lock control unit on my 2008 Pontiac G8 , So be careful check daily, it seems more and more cars are being recalled .
