Possible ban of all Toyota hybrids?

http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/toy...us-market-ban/

"Bloomberg reports that the US International Trade Commission has launched a probe of alleged patent violations which could result in the banning of all Toyota hybrids from the US market..."

bon appetit

This is why we should be doing business with American companies. They are respectable because Americans have a high standard of ethics in business. We punish those who conduction violations, and this time we might be banning some of their products from our respectable market.

Pray they're that stupid. GM and Ford will sue them for all they have.

Sales won't be halted or banned, I guarantee that. More likely the plaintiff will get royalty payments out the ass.

In all seriousness, I really want to find a reason to respect the enthusiast brand buried beneath the garbage Toyota produces. Unfortunately, they killed all that was good in their company with the Supra. Occasionally, I'm impressed by a Lexus, but they pale in comparison to the far superior products constructed elsewhere under different brands. I don't want to wish bad things on any company. I genuinely want them to improve. I just don't see much of an indication that they are working to improve their brand identity.

Heck, the last Toymotor I liked was the MR2 from the 90s.
With all the garbage Toyota has pulled coming to light you have to wonder how long the lemmings will continue to blindly support them.
