The Toyota president, Akio Toyoda is in hot water. He was grilled by the US Congress about safety and reliability concerns identified in some Toyota automobiles.

While the US Congress has the right to question the recent incidents, the general impression is that they are overreacting and are a¬†little too harsh with the world’s premier automobile manufacturer.There is no question that Toyota’s reputation is affected by this incident. But, still, its cars have great reviews and are loved all around the world.

If the US government is making a calculated move to boost American cars by kicking Toyota, it will fail. Toyota employs more than 172,000 Americans in plants and dealerships across the US. Plus, American automobiles are just not as good as Toyota’s automobiles. As the Bateke of Gabon say, “If you are digging a pit for your enemy, don’t make it too deep, you may fall into it.”
