    Well ironically I got in a car accident in morning traffic on the 405 freeway in LA just 20 days ago driving a 2007 toyota matrix, don't recall engine problem or stalling before. :rolleyes:

    Looks like I will be expecting a letter from Toyota.

    Doh! I drive an '05 Matrix.

    Doesn't seem like a big deal though. I'll take it in when I get the letter, but I'm not concerned.

    The only thing worse then a Toyota is someone dumb enough to buy one.





    j/k. Calm down. :D

    Rather be dead on the shoulder then having a Prius accelerating out of control to its top speed of 45 MPH. :D

    I had a dodge Dakota, one day the headlights and dash lights started flashing, wipers coming on by themselves, and would stall. Obviously the problem was common enough that I was able to find the issue on the web, go to a dodge dealer that just happen to have a couple in house?????? Have the work done in an hours worth of labor.
    At least Toyota is recalling their cars unlike dodge.

    Yeah, Toyota is a good citizen when it comes to recalling their vehicles. Did you miss the news back in December through February?

    While the preliminary report has found it to be mostly driver error( what did you expect? Americans can't drive for crap), still doesn't mean they did not try to hide the accelerator pedal defect.
