Acura airbags are famous for deploying at the slightest fender bender.

Hmmm... it was always a little bit of a concern about how to tell if an airbag is going to work properly...

Here we go again. Can we blame this on all the junk Chinese components the entire industry is using?

Recalls happen but it seems like over the last 3-4 years Toyota has had the recall bug big time.

Recall after recall and these morons still buy them. I would never buy that Toyota crap. Toyota is like E15 I wish they would both just go away.

"This is silly. They denied they had electronic problems with the accelerators. They didn't. NASA proved it."

BUZZZT... Sorry, you're wrong. A lot of people tried, but nobody found either a hardware or software problem to explain most of the problems that people said they had. Stick to the topic of the article at hand.

This is silly. They denied they had electronic problems with the accelerators. They didn't. NASA proved it. They changed nothing in the electronics...so why haven't more people had unintended acceleration?
Because it was OPERATOR ERROR...people step on the gas when they think it is the brake!

Don't forget recalls bring their existing customers back into their dealerships so they can sell them new vehicles - this has sure worked for them in the past.

I think I'll stick with American-made cars, I own a Ford & never seem to have any major issues with it.

Toyota still #1 at recalls
