Is this the second recall? I remember hearing about this months ago. It could possibly be that toyota actually started recalls and were just talking about it months ago.

It's actually quite a journey from realization (of a problem) to recall. Lots of legal and regulatory kicking and screaming along the way. Surely Toyota would have the public believe that they are above kicking and screaming...

The agency asked drivers to remove spare tires mounted underneath the body of Tundras until they bring the vehicles to a dealer.
It would appear as though toyota's solution to any problem is to remove offending objects.

Floor mat wedging against the accelerator? Take your floor mat out!

Spare tire coming loose? Remove your spare tire!

What's next toyota? Brakes aren't working? Remove your brake system!

That's funny, my friend had the small truck ,and toyota bought it back on a recall for the frame rusting. They gave him a new truck. Nice to see it carried over into the fullsize trucks.

Article said originally the "Gubment" was looking into the frame issue. Now its a full blown recall. Combined with the largest recall in Toyota's history last month, things are not so rosy for them. Too bad...

That would be an unrealistic expectation.

They might, however, ziptie the floormats in place.

Maybe they're going to fix the brakes by ziptying them.

They've been re-recalled. The same 3.8 million vehicles, and they're actually going to change the pedals to fix the problem.

OK Flame on here Is what I'm hearing a bit of envy that GM hasn't faired as well as the competition? what exactly is the issue. The US automakers have had plenty of recalls throughout their history. Last big one that comes to mind was the roll over issue with Ford SUVs and the tires that they where putting on them were prone to catastrophic failures. If I remember corectly... Hey, lets be honest here... they put together a good product If it wasn't so They would not be around the top of the pile... They hold there resale value blah blah blah... Fact remains American auto manufactures are playing catchup. Hope they can....

Still, I know 3 people that had 80s/90s Toyotas w/ 300k-400k miles on them. Never met anyone with a 300k GM product. Theyre way late to the quality game, but maybe GM and Ford (Chrysler is still lost) figured it out before its too late. I know its cool for big hairy American men to bash Toyota, but theres a reason people flocked to them and not to GM in the past.

I have never heard of a GM product or Ford product with a known issue that has caused more deaths than these crashes have with Toyota's and the place mat getting stuck issue. It is a shame how long they've known of the problem and did nothing to correct it.

My 1998 Ford Mustang passed the 300K mark before I gave it to my dad and its still running strong..

wow love statements based on prejudice against american cars. axe talking about you.

my wife has a toyota FJ 2008 TRD edition (30ish k on the odo). that thing has spent more time in the shop then my 07 silverado with almost 50k on odo. and we don't even off road it like it was "designed to do."

point being you are making statements that are totaly false and defending a company that has known of this issue and done nothing. becareful of the ground you walk on it's shaking.

Obviously if you don't know of anyone then it's impossible. They flocked to them mostly because they were cheap and fuel efficient.

Hmm. You must not get out much. I know many a soul with a GM badge (and FOrd, and Dodge) on the front and 500k Kms on the dash. Not so many with a jap vehicle.


Heck, both mine and my dad's old Caprice's have 320k + kms on them!

I know a salesman that would buy full size front-drive Buicks (80s vintage) with about a 100k on them, then drive them upwards of 300k, then finally sell. His point was instead of buying new, get one with 100k fairly cheap, then add another 200k of miles. I thought that was smart thinking. That 3800 V6 engine is bulletproof. Sorry, "axe", you are misinformed.

Pushing 170k on my 95 Impala SS and haven't had a single mechanical issue thus far, and I don't play nice on it either.

Over 200K on my '02 Silverado 4x4. I offroad it and pull trees with it and it runs just a good as it did new. Doesn't use oil, and loads of American V8 power. 18MPG highway too! Not bad for a 6300lb pickup!

I know you said 300k but my dad's '02 (I think that's the year) Yukon XL has 283k. I have no reason to believe that it won't hit 300k before the end of 2010, probably more like Q1 2010.
