Yikes!

I feel bad for the folks and their families that had to go through that experience.. I don't even know what to say.

Not to sound comedic about the issue (which is starting to look pretty ugly) but a few scenarios:

"Officer, the gas pedal was stuck! I barely got it slowed down in time to stop for you"

or

(bystander) "Marco, quit hammering your truck, you're gonna break a birf!!" (me)"I can't stop!! the gas pedal is stuck! I have to go for it!"

Wait.. im driving an FJ60 with cable throttle on a chevy motor.. nevermind that.

Read this and tell me something doesn't smell fishy in Tokyo:

It reminds me of when the headgaskets went on my 1990 3.0 4Runner. Had to go back and forth several times with the factory rep. This was despite increasing numbers of complaints on HG failures. They knew. Finally they acknowledged the issue and covered it. Wasn't long after, a recall happened. But they initially wanted me to pay for it, then labor, then half of it, then they covered it.
