They should include GM's Vibe as well. I already had the ECM replaced (under warranty)

My guess is the vibe would have to be included in any recall.

From what I read, the ECMs were made by Delphi, based in Troy, Michigan.

I love it, every time something goes wrong with a Toyota it’s always somebody else. It’s the government, the driver, the CTS company, the dealer tech, the media, etc. This is Toyota’s problem, 100% no exceptions.

Toyota cut costs (remember the “we cut costs” story and we’re making money story!”)?

Well there you have it. Toyota won’t use the modern EEPROM ECU’s found in D3 vehicles because it’s too expensive. Toyota = cheap and subpar parts. Stick the fork in.

Maybe, but you don't hear of GM, Ford, or Chrysler's stalling do you? And neither Ford, GM, or Chrysler has recalled 10 MILLION AUTOS in the last year.

Correct –

Further, Delphi pretty much supplies all of the automakers with the ECM on this side of the pond.
Looks like Toyota poo poo'd it again.
