Yeah it was something about run away vehicles that they tried to blame on the driver or floor mat being stuck under the gas.

Yes, we got an email notice from TEMA(Toyota Engineering Manufacturing America) about 2hours before this thread started. I think the number was 2.4M vehicles??? Can't remember. Not all, but alot of different models had the carry over pedal. I can say we'll be shut down in one line for a week starting Monday.
Not sure where the gas pedal was designed, most of drivetrain related stuff is still Japan design, proly some poor Japanese design guy hung himself today.

I agree about the floor mat recall, we couldn't believe it was the root cause either. The floor mats have hooks to the floor... WTF.

I understand you guys sentiment regarding Toyota, alot of us are EX-michigan people recruited as big 3 was pulling jobs out to Mexico. I worked for a tier 2 supplier in Mich that was killed after Delphi was spun off.
Guess I could have stayed in Michigan on unemployment.

additional....
oh crap I just read the article from USAtoday, guess it wasn't a Japan design...
The problem is with gas-pedal assemblies from CTS, a multinational auto components supplier.

The company, which supplies components for several automakers, is based in Elkhart, Ind., but the suspect parts came from its plant in Streetsville, Ontario, according to documents Toyota filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

NHTSA says it's waiting for a reply to its letter asking CTS whether sold similar pedal assemblies to other automakers.

CTS hasn't returned calls asking for comment. It is to report fourth-quarter earnings Wednesday. Through three quarters, it lost $38.2 million on sales of $365 million. Nine-month results in 2008 were a profit of $23.1 million on revenue of $529 million.

The sticking-pedal recall is unrelated to a recall last November of 4.2 million Toyota and Lexus models with gas pedals that can get jammed wide-open by floor mats.

That's impossible. According to every Jap car owner I've ever spoken to, their car was entirely built and designed in the U.S.

68% of US products are US manufactured. Style and design location depends on model for example if its a global vehicle (Camry/Corolla) its lead by Japan with support from Michigan tech center. If its a US only product (Tundra/Seqouia/Tacoma/Avalon/Venza) its Mich tech center lead but alot of the common parts are carried over from other designs. ie Japan models. I do know alot of functional parts are "design In" where the parts supplier has a designer onsite to design for example a gas pedal.

I hate that mentality. If you want to buy a foreign car, dont try and fool yourself into believing youre helping the US economy. I had a dealer try and pull that shit on me before. I was looking for a sports car, and was debating between a 350Z and a vette. I made a comment to the nissan dealer on how I liked the fact the vette was american, and he went on a big rant on how most US cars arent made in the US anymore, and how most jap cars are made in the US.

I ended his rant by asking him where the vette was made (kentucky...he didnt know), and where the Z was made (japan....he hesitated before saying it).

What's your point? Unless you own the company, the profits are still going to whatever foreign country the company is based in.
