2nd gen recall

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46657176.../#.T1e9qsAgc0U

"Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday it is recalling more than 681,000 cars and trucks in the U.S. market to address potential problems.
The Japanese automaker said it will recall about 495,000 Tacoma pickup trucks from model years 2005 to 2009 to replace a part in the steering wheel. It is also recalling about 70,500 Camry mid-sized cars and 116,000 Venza crossover vehicles from model years 2009 to 2011 to replace a stop lamp switch.
Toyota said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries in either case.
For the Tacoma, Toyota will replace the steering wheel spiral cable assembly because friction may occur over time involving that part, which may result in the driver's side airbag being deactivated and not deploying in an accident.
For the Camry and Venza, silicon grease during assembly may lead to increased electrical resistance that can cause the vehicle not to start or the shift lever not to move from the "park" position, Toyota said.
Both fixes will take about 30 minutes, the company said. Owners of the affected Tacomas will be notified in early April, while the others will be alerted as soon as Toyota has the necessary replacement parts."

Hell no, I've spend 4 years finally getting mine set up the way I want it (and fixing a lot of Toyota's shortcomings in the process). There's no way I'd give it back to them!

I fear that taking the truck in for this recall will have them cut my gas peddle for the phony recall on the mat issue.

I will take it in if recalled but beg to leave the peddle alone.

My airbag light is on, already diagnosed as spiral cable, does this mean the cable will be replaced as well?? Is this the US market only or will it apply to Canada?

Don't worry about the pedal, you won't notice when you drive. I'd forgotten they did it to mine (I also begged them not to).

I refused, signed the waiver and the dipstick mechanic still chopped it... It was a pretty stupid recall in my opinion but I'm over it. I can't tell when I'm driving now.
