The two recalls are totally unrelated - Toyota's is because an accelerator pedal could get stuck under the floor mat. Honda's recall is to address a problem with a Master power switch that could allow water to enter the window-winding switch and cause a fire.
These are component design issues, and although both of them could result in serious accidents it doesn't make cars in general any less safe.
It doesn’t mean that all the cars will suffer from these problems that they are being recalled for. In reality, the number of cars that will have the problem will be minute, but they have to be checked.
We received a letter in 2007 from Renault advising us of the bonnet catch problem and to arrange to take the car (Clio) to the main dealer, after inspection a new updated catch was fitted free of charge ...alB
'BTW another company now..OMG!!'...do behave, the faults could cause problems on a tiny proportion of cars. I suppose if it starts raining gently you look for a grey haired old man building a ginormous wooden boat and asking for 2 of every animal. Meh! x 3
