So we all know what Toyota is going through right now, with the faulty gas pedal. They have been doing recalls and trying to figure out the problem, which is good. As I was checking up on the situation I stumbles across this article from ABC news.

The article talks about how instead of hiring a PR firm to help out the situation, they would rather try to take care of it themselves, so all the information comes from them.  I can kind of see where they are coming from, because the public has negative opinions with PR reps usually.  I feel like they just want people to think they aren’t spinning information or anything. A PR firm could help it go smoothly, but it will be interesting to see what comes out of this plan.

Especially with all of those bad political reports coming out about their previous knowledge…no good! If they just started putting it out in the open months ago, the situation would have diffused. More information is always better than not enough!
