Toyota Recall: How Affected Are We?

I have been looking to see some one set up a thread as this but haven't

Or maybe i didn't search and run my check effectively. . . . .but whichever the case, i think subject topic deserves some chat here!!

Toyota recalled some units of Camry, Rav4, Sequoia, Highlander Corolla and Tundra in America, Europe and China(in no particular order)

Knowing fully well that most of our sales come from North America and that Toyota form a great number of the cars

we deal on here, i'll like fellow dealers and engineers alike to brainstorm on how this affects our business here.

There is no gainsaying that certain/most models of these recalled cars are already in Nigeria especially the Camry

The cars 2008 - 2009 models have been noticed to have sticky gas pedals(accelarator pedal) which have caused many a crash in some countries

Toyota has already said its found a solution to the issue and is distributing repair parts to its accredited dealers in USA.

My concern is, has anyone who's used any model of these cars experienced these issues? Whether in Nigeria or USA?

How do we resolve it should anyone of us have bought this defective models.

Dealers, how much are we willing to help the affected customers. . . . this is very pertinent cos eventually most of these affected cars

will end up in Nigeria and our homes. . . . .we need to protect ourselves so we don't fall victim to this anomaly!!

Ultimately, How does this affect the Price of Toyota in the US and World Auto Mart and Auctions??

Lets Talk!!!

True.

I like Honda, BUT something about it puts it on the fragile side. I wouldn't drive one anyway.

I'm watching the news and I'm seeing customers drive into dealerships with their Toyota vehicles and the customers come out without any adjustments done to their vehicles, all OK. Its funny.

Hmm, lets agree to disagree BUT Honda, et al, might have something to say about Toyota leading @ the moment,

I know about the car industry bre.

Like I said, its my view. Toyota never filed for bankruptcy, so we are talking economics here. Countries are desperate and would in most cases try to sabotage others especially in industries they lead in.

Toyota leads.

I Dont know about the caffeine, BUT its just how I see the whole Toyota thing; and I'm pretty sure about about it.

I'm not knocking Ford or GMC, BUT being practical separates Toyota from flashes

I personally see this as political; like a dying USA is trying to sabotage Toyota so as to get failures like FORD and bogus failures like GMC back on the road.

For me I still await a real user in Nigeria to say He or She has that problem.

Toyota is still and will always be Number 1.
