Enough with these stories. These accidents are the result of driver error, end of story. She's 76, hit the wrong pedal, and is trying to cash in.

Mr. HMMMMM seems to have a serious speech impediment that prohibits him from explaining the issue without an endless barrage of profanity.

So are we going to have a story everytime some yahoo in a Toyota crashes?

Agreed with Nate, NotSurprised F U, you're just some retired UAW member with allegiance to Ford, just drive your crappy Fusion and be happy. Most women have trouble driving. My next door neighbor, whom just totaled her Buick, and was 72, argued and argued with me about how drivers should yield to her when she pulls out of the Walmart parking lot and into the busy street. She was t-boned bad, because she wasn't even looking at the street. Point is old female drivers are particularly susceptible to bad driving habits, I'm sure this Toyota lady was braking with her left foot and accelerating with her right foot.

Toyota is more interested in selling vehicles than producing safe ones. Reward their efforts by purchasing something else.

You aren't controling much of anything that doesn't go through the computer first. What if there is some type of tiny timing window where a bug resides? All of the suggested fixes go through the computer...

This is news because she had the fixes done that Toyota recommended. Fixes that many experts say didn't fix thee problem. Most think the problem was electrical not mechanical, and that hasn't been addressed by Toyota. They are doing everything they can to avoid spending money on the fix, and to h3ll with the consumer. By the way, in regards to the rest of your rant, I know many drivers in their 70's and 80's that are far better drivers than males in their 20's which I'm guessing you are.
Duh

Hey, aspiring human, you haven't made it yet. As a matter of fact, being a woman over 50 I have had only one accident. That was a man in his 40's who hit me at a stop sign, while I was stopped. So shut up about women drivers. Also, Toyota sucks and they are lying about their "fix".

76 years old....I'm betting on geezer syndrome....accelerating while standing on the accelerator! We've all seen it a dozen times! I now live in Arizona and this happens all the time down here.

Maybe some of them experienced the same problem and just assumed like you did - that they MUST have gotten the brake and gas mixed up...

I am now certain there is NO hope for America. All the people on this board have nothing better to do than write negative comments about someone they don't even know, Have never met, and means nothing to them. All they are succeeding at is proving how ignorant and stupid they are.

Actually, GM, which is owned by Brock O'Bama and friends, would rather see you buy a nice union made government subsidized junker rather than a Toyota.
