What was wrong with having a cable from the pedal to the throttle body? worked great for 70 years. Why do we constantly push technology for improvement. How does having a computer controlled servo operate the throttle linkage make it better? Seems like it's a matter of the bigger better deal, anything they can come up with to inch the price of vehicles up. I had a 1980 camaro when i was a teen, It ran on two wires and a person could actually fix it when something didn't work. My 06 dodge truck, is engineered in a way that it is nearly impossible to perform even a simple tune-up, My wife's intrepid is an example of pure idiocy had to dismantle half the engine in order to replace the battery. Technology is always advertised as a way to improve our lives, I no longer believe so.

the issue is engineering vs overengineering

Some experts don't believe the problem is just the sticky gas pedals: http://tinyurl.com/yh7olob . So why spend all that money if the problem is actually electronic and they'll need another recall? Go to this website and then trade in your Toyota for piece of mind.

WOW,WOW,WOW. That was very informative and after hearing that report on youtube would make anybody scared. I'm SO GLAD we traded in our 2009 Corolla LE back on Jan. 24. All four wheels jumped a curb and stopped when my wife went to a doc's appt. It even had a VIN # starting with "JT" (made in Japan). At the end of the report it tells you how to stop a out of control car. I guess if you successfully stop you're safe, then do you ever trust it again to drive? We didn't.
