Over the last several years, Irv Miller has been one of our main sources of answers about Toyota's
environmental policies. Not for much longer. Miller has been group vice president of environmental and public affairs for Toyota in North America. However, it appears that Miller and two other U.S. vice presidents will be calling it quits in the next couple of months. Also leaving with Miller are Steve Sturm and Dave Danzer who headed strategic research and product planning respectively.
Toyota has been struggling of late as a result of both the global recession and, more recently, a massive recall campaign
related to unintended acceleration. In recent years Toyota has made some questionable product decisions, including making a major push into the full size truck market just as that market was starting to shrink. The Tundra
full size pickup has never met expectations and has generally not been considered competitive in the class.
