Has Toyota moved fast enough to fix their recalled cars?

Toyota Motor company said today that its dealers should receive the parts to fix a sticky gas pedal problem by the end of the week and that it will train dealers on how to make the repairs.

The president and chief operating officer of Toyota Motor Sales also apologized to Toyota owners, saying in a statement, "I drive Toyotas. My family members drive Toyotas ... I would not have them in products that I knew were not safe."

It is amazing that the vehicles with VINS starting with a "J" are not recalled. So this is essentially a problem of Toyota vehicles made in the U.S.

FH500 -- nowhere have I seen it alleged that this is an assembly, as opposed to a design problem.

Both in terms of the gas pedal, and the failure to include a brake pedal override.

So the country of origin on the VIN means nothing. But thanks for playing.

Probably because they used a different design and supplier for cars in the US.
