Subaru awaits Toyota U.S. plant decision as it lifts output

Subaru's association with Toyota is unfortunate. And speaking of Camrys, NASA physicist Henning Leidecker is now speaking out regarding the increased risk of unintended acceleration due to "tin whiskers" growing in the electronic throttle control of '02-'06 Camrys, comparing it to a game of Russian roulette. Toyota redesigned the pedal sensors in '07 and '08 for the express purpose of eliminating the tin whisker risk. Instead of Toyota, the Justice Department, and NHTSA trying to keep the electronics issue quiet, a recall should be issued to update the sensors in the models Dr. Leidecker has noted. I've been blogging about the Recall King for quite some time - search "Beware of Toyota. Their next victim may be YOU..."

Why do you suppose all the hysteria rampant years ago over the Toyota UA issue is now.....well.....gone? Seems like it evaporated right after NASA and everyone else said, other than some bunched up floormats, that they couldn't find anything wrong.
All I hear about now are Toyotas being driven into buildings by elderly drivers mistaking the gas pedal for the brake.
