Toyota: On the Capitol Hill Hot Seat

Hosted by

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told a House Oversight Committee hearing today that any car on a recall list is not safe until it's been repaired by a certified dealer. That warning came as the CEO of Toyota, a Japanese icon who bears his company's name, apologized for the deadly results of sudden acceleration. Is the company getting fair treatment or is this a Congressional "witch hunt." What's at stake for auto safety, Toyota and the economy of Japan?
