Toyotas Make People Worse Drivers

March 9th, 2010 · No Comments

I’ve oft lamented the complete appliance-like nature of Toyota’s.  Their cars are boring and not fun to drive.  The recent recalls and problems are highlighting the dumbing-down of Toyota drivers all over country.

People who don’t understand to use the emergency brakes.  People who don’t think to turn off the ignition because the car is accelerating to high double digit speeds.  People who never realized that moving the transmission to neutral would let the car decelerate and the brakes to work again.

The guys at Jalopnik have summarized this nicely as “Beige Bites Back”.

It is such a great write up that I had to bring my blog out of retirement to share this bit of insight into the problems of bland cars and the blander drivers it creates.
