Scion fr-s recall 2016

http://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireS...oblem-36816002


Quote:
Toyota's youth-oriented Scion brand is recalling about 28,000 FR-S sports cars in North America because drivers can take the keys out of the ignition without the car being in park.

The recall covers cars with automatic transmissions from the 2013 through 2016 model years.
Toyota says in some cases, the mechanism that holds the key until the ignition unless the cars are in park may not have been connected before delivery. That makes it possible to remove the key while the cars are in gear, which could increase the risk of cars rolling away unexpectedly.

Toyota wouldn't say if the problem has caused any crashes or injuries. The company says dealers will check the key lock mechanism. If it doesn't work, they'll activate it.

All the more reason to have bought the manual. I wonder if auto brz premiums will be recalled as well?
No one chose a manual because they thought the ignition would be recalled in 2016, but thanks for sharing.

Why thank you kind sir.

Good thing we didn't get autos.. I mean I don't want to be able to take the key out. Oh, what about the fine gentlemen who didn't buy base models? The ones with the keyless. Theirs keys have never been in the ignition.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
For all of the 50s and 60s and part of the early 70s the ability to take the keys out of the ignition while the car was running was a premium feature!!!!!! You paid more for the car to have the ability to do exactly that and it didn't matter what gear it was in.

Ya no wonder Scion went out of business. There goes the resale value right down the tubes.
