- MRF 95 T-Bird Back when the Corolla consisted of a wide range of body styles. This wagon, both four door and two door sedans, a shooting brake like three door hatch as well as a sports coupe hatchback. All of which were on the popular cars on the road where I resided.
- Wjtinfwb Jeez... I've got 3 Ford's and have been a defender due to my overall good experiences but this is getting hard to defend. Thinking the product durability testing that used to take months to rack up 100k miles or more is being replaced with computer simulations that just aren't causing these real-world issues to pop up. More time at the proving ground please...
- Wjtinfwb Looks like Mazda put more effort into sprucing up a moribund product than Chevy did with the soon to be euthanized '24 Camaro.
- Wjtinfwb I've seen worse on the highways around Atlanta, usually with a refrigerator or washer wedged into the trunk and secured with recycled twine...
- Wjtinfwb Surprising EB Flex hasn't weighed in yet on it being the subject of a recall...
What an attack of the Chicken Littles! Sure, this will shake Toyota's halo a little, but until they've built crap for 30 years they're still not in GMs shoes. I'm no Toyota lover, but I'm sure not putting on my tinfoil hat yet either.
Check out this link: http://abcnews.go.com/images/Blotter/ToyotaAcceleratorPedal20100127.pdf If this letter is genuine then it says the recall only applies to cars made in N America with that CTS pedal. I checked my vin# and it starts with a J- yes! I lucked out, unless they find another reason for the problem other than that part. However this huge recall will probably hurt all of toyota cars' resale values. I will have to drive this baby into the ground- oh well, we keep our cars for 10 yrs anyway. This is the 1st foreign car I have ever bought -figures! I guess next time I will stick with Ford...
