Toyota Looks to Digg Its Way Out of Trouble

ToyotaJimLentz.jpgTo say it’s been a rough week for Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. president and chief operating officer Jim Lentz would be an understatement, but now, he has a way to Digg his way out of it.

Digg is holding a Digg Dialogg with Lentz, and users have until Monday at 8 a.m. PT to submit questions for the embattled automaker executive, who has been dealing with the fallout from Toyota’s recalls of 5.3 million vehicles for floor-mat issues that may lead to unintended acceleration and 2.3 million vehicles for sticking gas pedals.

Chief strategy officer Mike Maser posted on the Digg Blog:

In light of the recent controversy around the Toyota vehicle recall, Digg is hosting an exclusive Digg Dialogg LIVE event just days before the car maker testifies before Congress. We know there are a lot of open questions about how Toyota is dealing with this situation, and we’re giving Toyota’s top U.S. executive, Jim Lentz, the opportunity to address them.

Digg is the only place you’ll have the chance to pose questions directly to Toyota’s top management and get the answers you’re looking for. So, submit and Digg questions from now until Monday, Feb. 8 at 8 a.m. PT. Then come back later that afternoon, at 2 p.m. PT, to watch the live event.
