    i think toyota has about 2 weeks to have this problem solved or else they will see major problems in IMO, as in lose of confidence in the brand.

    Nah, safety problems happen, this is far from the first, won't be the last.

    Just listening to the Morning news now--and they are blaming the floor mats for the accidents still. ---Even the cars that didn't have floor mattes. this tells me there is a serious problem they don't want to face. --aliens I bet, are behind it.
