I wrote about the recall earlier, and how I was affected by it. (I also mentioned that I’m a former Toyota corporate fuel pump buyer, a fact that I found more than a little ironic.)
The recall has now been expanded by more than a million vehicles.
Needless to say, I’m glad I’m no longer the fuel pump buyer at Toyota. (I say “the” buyer, because it really was just me back then, even though I reported to several layers of management; so it’s probably just one person today, too.)
I do wish, however, that my Avalon was not on the list of recall vehicles. Toyota has yet to give me a timeline for fixing my car. In the meantime, I keep my fingers crossed every time I drive.
