Toyota Dealers: Government Treating Us Unfairly

Tuesday, 23 Feb 2010 10:51 AM

Toyota dealers are complaining that the besieged automaker is being treated unfairly by the U.S. government. Some say it's because the government has invested billions in two competitors, General Motors and Chrysler.

More than 150 Toyota dealers are in Washington to lobby lawmakers on behalf of Toyota, which has recalled more than 8 million vehicles due to safety concerns. At a Tuesday morning news conference, some complained the government is picking on Toyota, even though there have been dozens of recalls of other automakers' vehicles in the past year.

Paul Atkinson, a Houston-area Toyota dealer, got loud applause from other dealers at the event when he said, "How did we suddenly overnight become the villain? I don't get it."
