    Toyota and Lexus owners:

    Did you get your gas pedal fixed yet?

    Just a reminder...

    I bought a T shirt that says, "Once you drive one, you can't stop."

    Nope.

    Technically, it is a Pontiac. So Toyota (convenient to me) refused to fix it. GM, of course, has offered.

    Luckily, neither of mine has that issue. I got the notice this morning, which is what reminded me of the gas pedal recall.

    Yes, but I've never had a problem.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Last Toyota(Tercel) we had lasted 20 years and we gave it to a needy family.
    Am I supposed to forgive GM for the crap and bad service over the last 25 years?Certain corperations will inflate the ongoing Toyota situation to their benefit.
    Hey GM,how many drivers died in the 90's over your anti-lock brake system you failed to warranty or correct properly?Thank God I had an emergency brake that worked.

    The Volt looks cool, but I want to wait 1-2 model years to see how it fares in day to day driving. Other than that, if I have the cash, maybe a Camaro or Corvette for old time's sake.

    I'd like the ZR-1 'vette with the motor designed by Lotus and built by Mercury Marine... When I did the Open Track Challenge in 2002, there was a guy with one that had a twin-turbo conversion!

    Yeah - something reliable, like a VW.

    Actually, I was thinking of MB. The 190E and '84 Supra were the only cars I had that lasted over 10-years and 250k-miles. Apart from maintenance items like oil, coolant, brake-pads, timing-belts, the only repair I had to do during that entire time on the Supra was to replace the alternator. Nothing else I've had or anyone I know have ever had did as well. To be fair to BMW, I did have the ultimate performance package where they wrung every last bit of power out of the engine. The same engine in the M-Coupe was detuned slightly and had much, much better reliability. But 3 engine-swaps in one year was a little too much for me.

    Once they moved production to Mexico VW was plagued with problems and lost @60% of their customers.
    Sad way for a former reliable company to end up.
    Buy "Merican",get your made in Mexico Ford Fusion!
