FWIW -- there's no indication the drive-by-wire throttle control is at issue with Toyota's recall. It appears to be a condensation problem associated with the mechanical pedal mechanism and a USA manufactured part.brine99 said:Does cube use fly by wire system for accelerator like Toyota uses to their utter grief?
Hi there, dude!lance said:Did I read somewhere that Toyota are doing a major recall on several models due to problems with their accelerator setup.
Is that applicable over there ?
Ordered by the government? Where did you get that from? I was watching CNN yesterday and a government spokesman for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration specifically said Toyota has done the right thing with its handling of the problem.none said:The tragic issue here is that Toyota would have done NOTHING if not ordered by the government. They would have continued to claim it was irresponsible owners who let the floor mat get stuck in the pedal.
Not only that, but what does Toyota do when they got fixed pedals? They ship them to the FACTORY to keep their company going, instead of fixing cars already on the road which might kill their owners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shame on Toyota. They ought to be shut down ASAP.
I learned today CTS, the pedal supplier, has manufacturing facilities all over:none said:
That's the BIG question Christine and I don't think anyone knows the real answer. I understand the sticking gas pedal issue weather caused by floor mats and / or corrosion from condensation in the mechanical part of the throttle pedal. But that still doesn't address the sudden accelleration from a dead stop that some are experiencing.ChristineK said:Is it just a condensation issue? Or is it also a programming issue?
