This does not effect the US.

But I actually give Toyota credit for this. With a recall you get your problem fixed, with a class action lawsuit you get $100 bucks (Hello GM!).

From what I've read, this is fallout from Toyota's drive to push sales over quality control in its bid to be the biggest worldwide seller. Toyota has been recalling increasing numbers of vehicles over the past 8 years.
