Toyota handled this with grace, intelligence and dignity. Detroit would have screwed this one up for a year.

I agree with the previous poster, they stepped up and took responsibility for their error then took the rare action of suspending sales and production.

What a mess this would have been if it was GM/Obama Motors. The govt would have issued a no drive order and spent months on congressional hearings trying to decide who was at fault and how much to pay the victims. Then after that mess they would have tried to find a fix that would take years to get done. The US auto unions fighting every step of the way. Toyota seems to have moved to the solution stage in a matter of days. Anyone else notice that the Toyotas made in Japan don't have this problem-just US made ones? No wonder foreign car cos are diving GM, Ford and Chrysler out of business.

No reporting on the new pedal assemblies sent to factories before a repair option was figured out?

Can't blame the consumer for choosing a better value. I know several people with Toyotas that went 300,000 miles+. Most Toyotas are made in the US anyway. Every Toyota in the trees was probably the sale of a new Toyota.

I'll bet IF the people killed in California or Texas could be asked about Toyota quality they would probably say WHAT QUALITY?

IF Toyota is comfortable blameing the failure on a North American part I.E. we allowed a bad part to be installed on a Toyota then their name isn't worth jack squat.

A quality corporation incorporating ISO standards into manufacturing processes would NEVER end up with a faulty part on their products.

Shame on Toyota!
