Required Reading for Toyota Owners!

My mom owns a Prius so you can imagine how nervous the story of the runaway Prius in San Diego made me :-0

We also own a Toyota and while it hasn't shown up on any of the recall lists so far, we keep hearing rumors that the true problem may date back well before 2004 when we bought our car.

If you or anybody you know drive a Toyota, make sure you read this article on how to stop your car in the event the throttle gets stuck.

I own a Highlander hybrid (2008). I've been paying close attention to the recalls and have been pleased that I'm not affected -- yet. I'll keep my fingers crossed though, or knock on wood or whatever it takes

We own a 2002 Toyota Corolla and we have had problems with it from very early on. We have read about people online having the same problems. When it came time to buy again, we purposely chose a used model we could research including online opinions and went with Hyundai (anyone but Toyota).
