YOU DON’T SAY: Big Runaway Toyota Surprise: Drivers, Not Electronics, at Fault. “The results suggest that some drivers who said their Toyota and Lexus vehicles surged out of control were mistakenly flooring the accelerator when they intended to jam on the brakes…”

In the words of P.J. O’Rourke: “Yes, the dumb buggers stepped on the gas instead of the brake.”

Just like with the identical claims about the Audi 5000, which O’Rourke was writing about. So who does Toyota sue to get its reputation back?

UPDATE: Tom Maguire notes that we’re all supposed to have moved on to hating BP now anyway. Good point.
