    Recalled 646,000 units because 3 failed? That is the lowest failure rate I've ever heard of in a recall.

    i have seen about the toyota recalls a bunch of times on the headlines on the weather channel but the tv is always muted so i don't hear it

    from the videos i think it has something to do with the gas pedals?

    thats only part of the recall from what i have gathered
    some of the throttle cables are getting gunked up and seizing while the throttle is open (or some shit)

    same basic effect i suppose

    people are all freaked out over this... i guess they cant figure out how to shift to neutral and apply the brakes then turn the car off

    some fucking people are entirely too stupid to be allowed to operate vehicles

    Doubt it. Damn near all manufacturers went to drive by wire about 6 years ago or so.

    I say they have a faulty throttle motor getting stuck and/or another input sensor to the throttle motor is at fault or has some sort of electrical interference.

    :shrug: not really 100% sure what its all about... i havent been paying much attention... i dont own a toyota... or anything else new enough to be effected by this... so my "give-a-shit-o-meter" has been hovering near empty on this one

    all i know is they said throttles are getting stuck open when people take their foot off the go pedal

    beyond that... i got nothing

    It's gotta be something so stupid they are to ashamed to actually let the public know lol.

    I don't know if they started selling the cars again but on tuesday I seen on the news that they stopped all sales of 8 models. Can't remember off the top of my head which ones exactly but they weren't going to sale any until the problem(s) were remedied(sp?) and it was going to cost them 100's of millions of $ doing so. Why they just won't temporarily go back to a cable actuated throttle body w/ a tps so they don't lose out on tons of money is beyond me...

    i like how the media is saying this a huge blow to the reputation of japanese vehicles. between the honda recall and the toyota, that makes 2 major recalls.
    how many do american cars have?
    people are fucking retarded.

    plus, the gas pedals in question were made by an american company.

    Maybe Honda is doing this to show up Toyota... "look our super humongous recall is really simple and stupid, you're just screwed."

    :D

    Still, the engineers who designed these parts have shamed their families and ruined their reputation.

    I love that about the japanese.
