I second that! Japan's QC is far superior to US's. Toyota might try and enforce it in the US plants but it probably doesn't get done. I wouldn't of bought the Yaris if it wasn't 100% assembled in Japan.

I feel this will really hurt Toyota in the long run. Which is really a shame, they make great engines but severely lack in other departments.

x2. new recall isnt floor mats, its a gas pedal/ecu problem. Go go Toyota!

many parts for TOYOTA are now from U.S. . CANADA , CHINA too ? Amazed that the 2009 and 2010 VIBE are not included in the recall . Shame they closed plant in CALIFORNIA .

not long ago an acquaintance bought a 2009 COROLLA . We told them about recall . Don't think they took it in to shop yet . Glad we didn't get the 2009 COROLLA we test drove . Didn't like the way it felt on highway ( very light steering , wondered ) and plenty of engine noise with the 5w-20 motor oil they now use from factory . Last , there was a loose bolt on the passenger door guide . When opened door it would click . We thought what else may wrong with it if they can't get a bolt tightened properly . That COROLLA was made in CANADA . Before that we noticed a couple of '08 COROLLAs that had the hood off center ( misaligned ) . They too were from CANADA . This is part of reason we bought the YARIS . Made in JAPAN . Saw less flaws in the ones we looked at and test drove . There were some '09 COROLLAs sold here that were assembled in JAPAN when the redesigned COROLLA was introduced . Wonder if those are being recalled as well ?

question? has anyone had hesitation with electronic throttle

I have an issue where my throttle doesn't seem to work when I press down;
it's only when starting off in first or reverse. If I stop and wait a second or two it all seems fine. Has anyone else experienced this??

yep , both our YARIS do this . It's like there's a dead spot in the pedal when going from a stop . Hopefully won't get rear ended by someone in a hurry thanks to this hesitation .

interesting that your 08 and 10 are doing the same thing.
I had mentioned to my dealer and they have not heard anything about it.

That must have been prior to my purchase of a Yaris.

The recall on the accelerator cites problems with moisture and corrosion sticking in a part from a single supplier. I haven't seen the name of the supplier in any of the news reports, but the recalled cars were built in North America. The Yaris comes from Japan. Mine had a window sticker attesting to its 0% US or Canadian content.

this is mythology. toyota executives in 2009 applauded the cambridge plant in canada because the problems per 100 vehicles for the corolla were lower there than at any of their japanese plants. in fact, they were pondering what the plants in japan could learn from the cabridge operation. plants in canada and the u.s. operate under the same QC controls as they do in japan.

having spent parts of 3 years in japan and knowing several on the line workers at a toyota plant, i can assure you that assembly workers attitudes are nothing like they were 10-20 years ago. they no longer have a lifetime of employment security and their economy has been faultering for some time. their loyalty is to whoever can employ them.

if the yaris were built in the u.s. or canada, i expect nobody would notice one bit of difference. the only differences that will generally occur is with different (which does not mean better) components used in japanese plants vs candian/u.s. plants. so many parts are outsourced. it is not as though the parts used in japanese built cars are all designed and manufactured in that country.

as was mentioned, the japanese made yaris already had a recall, correct?

I have a 07 LB, 5 speed, speed control, 30K miles. The other day while backing from a parking space the throttle would not respond to the accellerator pedal. After about 5seconds everything was back to normal. No problem since. Does make one a bit anxious.

The accelerator that is now being blamed is made by CTS Corp, which is North American. So we should be ok.

The thing that confuses me is CTS supplies more then just Toyota, and it doesn't seem like the Toyota unit would be much different(if at all) from the ones sold to other car makers. I wonder if there will be more recalls down the road.

The models affected include the company's three best sellers in the U.S. -- the Camry, Corolla and Rav4 SUV, which between them accounted for more than half of the Toyota brand's U.S. sales in 2009. Five North American plants will halt production of these vehicles."


... makes me wonder whether dealers will feel more motivated to negotiate on the prices of the other models they can still sell in the meantime, such as the Yaris, in order to help out sales numbers overall.

Maybe we should skip the recall and get Jack Bauer on this!!

Maybe this is all a ruse to get "Crashy" - if that really is his name - covered under warranty...hmm CTScott!!??!!
