General Toyota Recall Questions/Comments: Accelerator Stuck Problem Recall
#313 of 447 Re: Something's fishy here... [isellhondas]

Problem is I already own a 2009 Toyota Camry.
To make matters worse, noticed Toyota just added another 1.1M cars to floor mat recall (when will this madness stop?????).
Toyota revealed yesterday evening that it's recalling a further 1.1 million cars to fix "pedal entrapment problems" caused by floor mats.
This action is tied to Toyota's largest recall ever last year of 4.26 million cars for the same issue, but is different than the recall of 2.3 million cars for a sticking accelerator announced last week. The new models in question are:
* 2008-2010 Highlander
* 2009-2010 Corolla
* 2009-2010 Venza
* 2009-2010 Matrix
* 2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe

I'm also watching this "Trouble with Toyotas" as a buying opportunity....
I prefer manual transmissions and it as occurred to me that a good old-fashioned clutch pedal pretty much cancels out any accelerator problem without adding modifications.....
I'm sure this thought has probably occurred with others....

How will you buy one when they have a "stop sale" on them.
With a manual a person could simply step on the clutch if the gas pedel stuck but would they think to do that? Just like simply shutting off the ignition.

This all comes down to Toyota compromised on quality control in an overzealous drive to cut costs and expand sales during its climb to the top of the world auto market.
It will be interested to see if Toyota follows through as the company they claim to be: Issue a buyback for ALL effected vehicles and offer either a refund or comparable; otherwise, it will go to prove Toyota really is no different than Ford, GM, Honda, or Nissan...including their perceived level of quality.
An unfortunate lesson learned...Shame on Toyota!

Meanwhile we can continue talking about safety issues as they relate specifically to the Camry here.

I sure hope Toyota does the right thing and offers us Toyota owners the option of them buying back our vehicles...I have nothing more now than a lemon
