Why blame the manufacturer of the part? Toyota designed the part. The manufacturer built the part to Toyota's specifications. Toyota SUCKS! Cheap SOB's could have solved this problem with a "Brake Override", but that would have cost a buck per unit.

Sometimes the part supplier actually designs the part--nevertheless, if it says Toyota/Lexus, they have to stand behind it, if they can find the source of the problem and figure out how to correct it..This will be a big blow to Consumer Reports/Toyota...

Consumer Reports has been downgrading Toyota quality for a while now.... What would you suggest they do?

The credibility of Consumer Reports has long been questioned by those of us in the auto community..Many believe their choices and recomendations are based on gifts and gratuities given them by certain car companies. I cant verify that, other than the fact that given 2 identical vehicles, one with a Japanese name and the other with an American name..rest assured, the Japanese named vehicle will be rated higher even though the 2 cars were made on the same line with the same parts,...go figure..

are you talking about the Pontiac Vibe and the Toyota car both made by the same workers on the same line? Consumers Report had a guy this morning on Fox News trying to defend Toyota until the Fox News guy started to say it wasn't floormats and that people are dead and that people are scared to drive their Toyota's. I usually hate Fox News but today i loved it

My friend, no one has ever been able to prove that CR has ever accepted gifts or anything else from anybody. Ever. What does "those of us in the auto community" mean? You work at Jiffy Lube?
