    I personally can't believe they're sticking with "Moving Forward".

    And I would call you an idiot.

    Really? This seems like some set up to you? I suppose GM and Ford operatives infiltrated Toyota and they made them boast about saving money by limiting recalls that they are still having problems with?

    they issued this recall based on what? 3 instances? my fucking G8 has had 7 instances over the past 10 months...and that is one car, not 300,000

    Even though it's not recalled, I'm pretty sure I sold my 4Runner right in the nick of time. :o
