Runaway Toyotas: Massive recall, Suspended Sales

Pretty cool. My cousin, Joey, was the producer that first identified the huge problem in Toyota's accelerators across the country back in November 2009. Now there is a massive recall:

"Recall Shakes Toyota Owners Confidence" Fox News

And U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood didn't help and only added confusion, "LaHood’s ‘On the Fly’ Toyota Statements Accelerate Confusion" BusinessWeek

ABC News has special "Runaway Toyotas" section on their website which you should check out here. Anyway, Joey has been a senior producer for investigative news shows at Dateline and now ABC News, which includes 20/20. He's been nominated for a few Emmys, but maybe he can win with this one :)
