    sucks for toyota, I have a feeling they might have the same thing happen soon with the tacoma. There seems to be a lot people complaining that they accelerate out of no where on them, in some causes they have been serious accidents.

    I thought Toyota did a good job on sending out the recall notice on my 92 4 runner for the steering rod.


    I didn't make an appointment after getting the first notice and they would send a new notice every couple of weeks.


    I wonder how many people tossed the notice and then complained when the part failed?

    I had an '88 small p/u and the steering rod broke on me some time in the mid 90's. Good thing I was about 2 blocks from home, going around a curve at about 20mph and in my neighborhood at the time or it could have ended up very badly!

    Yeah, I've thought toyota has done a good job getting notices out. I've heard of fourth/fifth owners being tracked down and receiving notices in the mail. I think it is negligent on the owner's part at this point for not getting it fixed. Toyota can't come commandeer (sp?) your rig and make you change the part, all they can do is send notices and hope you come in for it.

    1) Take your right hand and make it into fist
    2) Beat the side of your head until you forget why you're beating the side of your head?
    3) Go put on a dress and make me a sammich.

    :D
