Oh they would not have. People have to get over this crap that if it were Ford or GM blah blah....the media is the media. You sound like Republicans that think that the media will only report bad things if the president is Republican, not Democrat.

They didn't pull the Ford's off the road cause of the 16 million had to be recalled due to fires.

I have 3 Toyota's. I don't care about the recall. If the pedal sticks, then it sticks. If you know what to do you will be ok.

Yeah because Ford or Chevrolet have never had recalls.....but they all are made like junk so yes buy American.

This is one of the largest recalls ever, 4th largest in the United States. Sounds like your a real car guy considering you apparently know very little. Your the typical Honda Accord/Toyota Camry person, enjoy driving an appliance that is hard to fin in a crowded parking lot.

IRONY is when I buy an American FLAG to fly on July 4th, the INDEPENDENCE DAY of this GREAT NATION and the flag says...MADE IN TAIWAN....
That is no joke, that is a real story.
That is why many states were trying to pass laws that prohibit the sale of flags that are not made in America....They either was trying to get it a law or maybe some states did. I don't recall, it was back in 2008 when this was a pretty big issue. Opponents of the issue said it would raise the cost of flags from like 1 dollor for the little hand held ones to 5 dollars. They were saying it is just more affordable to buy them from China. I don't recall the full details or what came about it.

The foreign owned corporations that put their car's "together" in America do so bacause most of the cars they sell here in the U.S. are only sold here in the U.S. Sorry no gas guzzling Tundra's/Sequoia's/Ridgelines in Japan. So they are screwed together here because it is cheaper then dealing with the auto unions in Japan and then having to pay to ship them to the states. They also have no room for additional factories in Japan or Korea as people already are stacked on top of each other. I really doubt that people in Japan or Europe really care so much about blue collar Americans that they want to make sure they have jobs. It's all about cost savings. Thats why all the plants are in the South Eastern part of the country where they can pay lower wages and get big property tax breaks.
It does not matter if your silly tan Camry or ugly giant butted silver Accord is built in your back yard, it is still a Japanese owned corporation.

So what do you do when you are headed for stopped traffic on the interstate and the computor controlled throttle body sticks wide because of pressing the gas pedal. Especially if the key is a pass key which really is'nt a key like in most new Lexus models. You can't turn off the car because you would need a key for that. You can't slam the car into park at 65 mph's. Unless you feel like doing barrel rolls down the highway. I guess you could just panic brake and hope to God you get stopped in time. But I'm sure your an expert, though certainly not an auto enthusiasts, as those don't own 3 Toyota applicance's. I agree they would not have pulled them off the road, but Ford did say to not use the cruise control and it was 12 million 2002 and older Ford vehicles. almost half of them have not been repaired to to lackluster owners who have yet to take their cars in for the recall.

I thought that passed last year and it was a federal law.

Toyota made and makes three great vehicles, the original Toyota Supra/Celica, the first, 2nd, and 3rd generation small Toyota trucks/4 Runner and the current FJ Cruiser. The rest look and act like every other appliance on the road. Reliability and Resale won't even be much of a selling point at the rate Toyota is going, because it certainly is'nt a sense of want and style.

Considering how many different models of foreign company owned cars there are "majority" is really a far fetched term. BTW, Eurpoean cars are knwon for being technologically supurd, too bad they are always at the bottom for reliabilty

You don't own G.M. its this kind of thinking that allows Americans to be screwed over and over by the politihacks.
The American people can't bail out a company with money they don't have.All of the money came from China ,so the chinese own G.M.That is why they are moving G.M. plants over to China.
You will not benifit in anyway from G.M's tax sucking They will be on their **** in another year.
It was a loan to keep an American company afloat. Granted bad idea considering they still file for bankruptcy protection.
They are not "moving" plants to China. They have built "one" plant in China. Look it up before you spew garbage. Toyota, Honda, and Nissan all have several plants in China. It's called global corporations. Toyota has plants in some of America's favorite places such as Iran and Yemen. Enjoy driving your boring tan Camry as you go through your garage wall at 50 mp's.

BUY MADE IN THE AMERICA
That is the problem. If you'll notice - all the cars that made the recall are the ones that Toyota builds in the USA. This part that has a very small chance of defecting is a part made by a US supplier! Toyota should have kept building their cars in Japan! The ones that are built in Japan have much higher quality!

First of all - learn how to spell!(computor) Secondly, the odds of one having any problem with the gas pedal sticking at all are damn near nonexistent! Finally, if it were to happen, and you have the smart key - all you have to do is push the Start/Stop button. This is much easier than having to turn a traditional key. All you really have to do is step on the brake and slip the transmission into Neutral. It's not a big deal!!!

The plant closure in California is due to the fact that this particular plant (NUMMI) was a co-venture with Government Motors back in the day. With GM being on the ropes, they are having to bail. This works out better for Toyota, who will shift the production done of the Tacomas done in this plant to the Tundra plant in San Antonio, TX. Oh, and by the way, the product development, design and engineering are done here in the States as well!...D-DUB

I love comments like this. You know really I have owned Dodge, Plymouth, Pontiac, Toyota, Mercury, Chevy and I can say that none of them would be classified as a piece of shit. All have had problems whether actual or recall problems, and all served me well.

The Pontiac I had for 14 years, the Plymouth 15 years, the Chevy 7 so far, my two Malibus were 3 and 5 years, the Mercury 3, the Dodge 5....the mileage when I got rid of them ranged from 50,000 on my Pontiac to 130,000 or so on the Malibu and Dodge....
