    This proves that Toyota put there bottom line before public saftey! Toyota you are a farse, esp if you where aware of this.

    Obviously, those out-of-control Lexus' need to be recalled as well! Something is wrong with the "Electronics" of these Toyotas. - It is not a "Mechanical" issue, it is an "Electronic" issue - which nobody is investigating. Hello!

    The fact that it took @ least 4 years for them to respond says a lot ... even sadder that they first tried to send their "fix" to the factories making new vehicles instead of fixing the potentially dangerous ones already on the road.

    This debacle has all the makings of the Audi 5000 "unintended acceleration" meltdown, which proved in the end that blaming electronic gremlins for a sticky accelerator and bad driving works. The legions of locust-like lawyers will now descend on the Toyota carcass to feast, forcing management to recall all cars manufactured over the past 10 years for some supposed black box patch to fix some non-existent fault. We'll all get a check for $1.29 and the lawyers will get bazillions in fees. Wait 10 years and repeat.

    Glad I never took the Toyota "hook" and bought one of their dull looking rigs.

    Any staff member of the NHTSA, 2003 to present, that participated in numerous investigations which led to no public awareness should stand trial for the death of all those who died from this car makers on going problem. In addition, all those involved should be sued (being the capitalist country that we are) by the families of all who have died in accidents resulting from the malfunction of these vehicles. All need to be held accountable for there actions while under office. I'm sure that a deeper probe would reveal NHTSA members received hush hush money, in one form or another, from Toyota. Talk about betrayal of America and its people.
