Toyota was number one, again in 2007 in total recalls. ;)

Perhaps Toyota was #1 in least number of recalls per million vehicles sold, but Ford had over 9 times as many recalled vehicles as Toyota last year.
According this article (http://nwanews.com/bcdr/News/57169 /), Toyota has less than 700,000 recalled vehicles in both 2006 and 2007 vs. Ford, which sold fewer cars and trucks this year than Toyota (both in the US and worldwide), but had 5.5 million vehicles recalled last year and 4.8 million vehicles recalled the year before, about 7 times as many as Toyota over the two years (Toytao.
Perhaps before tapping on your keyboard to make comments, you should try to get your facts strait so you don't look like an ass. One would think you would have learned from your VIN fiasco, but I apparently not.

Once again you are wrong. Did I say more vehicles? Ford may have had more vehicles involved in recalls but Toyota had the highest number of individual recalls issued in 2007 as they did in 2006

Do you think the total number of recalls is more important than the total number of vehicles recalled?
And, if you think that the total number of recalls is more important, why do you think that the newspapers report the total number of vehicles recalled, not the total number of individual recalls?
Personally, I think that Ford's recalling 8x as many vehicles as Toyota is more important than the number of campaigns.

Ford had more individual recalls than Toyota in 2007.

In my opinion it would depend on why the recalls were issued. Millions of Fords were recalled becasue of the Crusie Control Deactivation switch. As I have said in another thread, I though the last bout of these recalls was total overkill.
I have uploaded a spreadsheet with all the 2007 vehicle recalls http://home.mindspring.com/~cewhite3 /. Look for yourself.

Are you not they guy that said Toyotas does recalls because they want to take care of their customers? Why is it Toyota owners say Toyota recalls are a good thing yet recalls of others indicates poor quality? LOL

Perhaps you can tell us. I don't make the claim.

Mike you are not correct - as I have pointed out at least three times. There is no metric you can use that would say Toyota had the most recalls in 2007.
I posted a list of all the 2007 Toyota recalls at least twice. Chrysler, Ford, Nissan, and others all had more individual recalls than Toyota in 2007. Multiple manufacturers had more vehicles recalled than Toyota in 2007.
It is bad enough that you make stuff up, it inexcusable that you repeat this misinformation after you have been given the facts.

There are plenty of floor mats in Walmart. I don't think Toyota's floor mat is any different. I know it was because of the tendency for the floor mats to slide up and trap the accelerator pedal. Did the NHTSA consider the floor mats from Walmart too=)? People can still buy them and nobody to warn them. I may sound like Toyota biased but this seems to me as a user problem. I have driven cars for years and I only use one floor mat at a time. Anyway, its good they warn the public about it.

This recall was for the heavy duty all weather floor mat Toyota supplied as an accessory. Apparently they moved around a lot (""if not properly secured") in a manner that could interfere with the operation of the accelerator pedal. It is not the standard carpet type mat. I think the fix involved a more substantial attachment. It is a Toyota recall because the mats were sold by Toyota. If a Wall*Mart floor mat caused a problem, Wal*Mart would be responsible for the recall (or the Wal*Mart supplier depending upon how it was marketed).
As per the usual Toyota practice, Toyota denies that the floor mats are defective and blames any problems with the floor mats on their Customers incompetence (see http://tinyurl.com/29lxys ). Given Toyota's usual practice of blaming the people that buy their car for problems, one has to wonder what sort of people find Toyotas appealing.
However your point about any floor mats possibly causing a problem is a good one and in fact NHTSA agreed. In the recall announcement (see http://tinyurl.com/2o6whc ) NHTSA included the following statement:
"Of course, depending on vehicle design, it is possible for unsecured floor mats to interfere with accelerator or brake pedals in a wide range of vehicles. Therefore, NHTSA reminds all drivers of all makes and models to check the driver-side floor mats for secure installation and to follow manufacturer instructions for installing the mats."
There was one lengthy complaint investigation of an accident originally attributed to a defective cruise control that NHTSA concluded was caused by the all weather floor mat. There are many (over 70) complaints in the NHTSA complaint database against 2007 Camrys related to speed control, throttle system, cruise control, etc that complain about unintended acceleration, hesitation, or failure of the vehicle to slow down when the accelerator was released. I believe that based on the one lengthy accident investigation and the numerous more nebulous speed control related complaints, NHTSA concluded that the all weather floor mats were defective and forced Toyota to take action (against their will). I don't have a 2007 Camry, I have never seen the all weather floor mats, and I do understand that Customers probably are improperly installing the mats. However, I also think the mats are defective (because they are difficult to install properly), and it is Toyota's responsibility to address the problem. I have had multiple vehicles with heavy duty floor mats purchased from the vehicle manufacturer (Ford, Saturn, Nissan, even Toyota) and have never had any problem with them jamming the accelerator pedal.
