"You know the joke that every bank branch has a president -- well, every Toyota facility has a president, and one can't tell another what to do," said John Jula, former engineering manager at the company's technical center in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Jula, who left Toyota in 2003 after eight years, said he had almost no interaction with the sales or dealership organizations that were collecting safety data from consumers, because all of the information flowed to Japan and all of the key engineering decisions came out of Japan. He left the company, he said, convinced that its dedication to safety had deteriorated.
Jula said he also had little contact with U.S. plant managers even though he was responsible for designing interiors for some of the models made in the U.S.
