    You haven't got a clue of what you're talking about. The Lexus had an all-weather floor mat in it that was too long. That means it wasn't a Lexus floor mat. This recall is to check cars for improper floor mat installation. Get a grip.

    Toyota has invaded our shores and has set up factories to built Japanese designed, owned, and controlled cars. The profits still go back to Japan with a few shekels for the colonials know as American workers.

    You can take your personal insults and shove them up your 7 th planet from the sun . I based my story on what was in the news this past year.

    My point is that Toyota is not the quality guru that it and some people think it is.

    JAN 28 ,09 Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday it would recall more than 1.35 million Vitz and two other models globally to fix a defect in the seatbelt, a component in the exhaust system or both.

    TOYOTA recalled cars in 2007 for the same problem. "Though Toyota recalled accessory all-weather floor mats in 2007 for similar problems, NHTSA noted that reports of vehicles accelerating rapidly even after the release of the pedal have continued. "

    Instead of hurling personal insults by falaciously accusing me of not knowing "what I am talking about" start with reading this site "http://www.motortrend.com/new_cars/07/toyota/recalls/index.html

    You must have heard of Motor Trend right ???

    A much more reasonable comparison of quality would be lifespan of vehicle and amount and cost of maintenance required per x miles.

    Save it!! We al know what a publically traded corporation IS and some of us even know where certian ones are headquartered. Many foreign branded companies set up publically traded corporations such as HOOCHKAWA USA Corp, SONY BALONEY USA CCORP,

    Yes we can all buy stocks of any company trades on the stock market.

    SO WHAT !! A foreign owned corporation is a foreign owned corporation !!!
