2011 Scion tC

Six months after the brouhaha kicked off, has Toyota been badly bruised by all those recalls? Today at High Gear Media, our own Bengt Halvorson peers into the recall abyss and reports on TheCarConnection that Toyota may have lost 200,000 sales and 1.5 percent of the entire U.S. market as a result of bad publicity. In related technology, could a one-pedal solution for brake and throttle get rid of unintended acceleration forever? And is the Apple iPod turning all us drivers into zombies?

On a happier note, Toyota's launching a new sport hatch this week, and MotorAuthority has the first drive of the 2011 Scion tC in its hip pocket--along with the interesting rumor that Saab and Chevrolet were working on mid-engined Corvette pieces until they parted ways. Meanwhile, Ford's Mustang barely outsold the Chevy Camaro in July--and that's before the Camaro Convertible comes along next year. Mansory's tuned the Bugatti Veyron to gold-plated excess, so hold your stomachs and click on.

GM may be 25 percent smaller, but it's asserting itself about that potential IPO rumored for 2010. Follow us over to PoliticsAndCars and TheCarConnection for the details.

On the green front, AllCarsElectric reports on how our 2011 Nissan Leaf won't become a part of the High Gear Media family until April of 2011. GreenCarReports, meanwhile, is filling you in on how human waste could be a source of vehicle fuel. Yes. We know.

And finally, our #Friday #fail lineup includes a pair of unbelievable Bay Area rides--a knockoff of Batman's Batpod, and a much less respectable makeover of a Chrysler Sebring Convertible that goes ugly early. Last stop: the trailers for the new Hawaii Five-0 show coming to CBS this fall. It's the only place you'll see Mercury on TV this year--way to stay on top of what the kids are up to, Tiffany Network!
