Looks like this affects the Matrix, I wonder if the 'Toyota-Pontiac' Vibe is also affected?
I belive so. Also there was a news story about the pontiac running thru a casino killing several people. The guy went to jail. They got him for wreckless, but they said it was strange that this was in a highly populated area and he was going very fast and hit no brakes. I belive this was due to the Toyota problem. This happened before the issue was well known.
edit: found one of the stories on this:
A 2007 Pontiac Vibe is towed away from the Edgewater Casino in Laughlin after a 70-year-old man drove it through the front entrance, killing two and injuring six.

■Crash in Laughlin leaves 2 slot players dead (2-3-10)
The Clark County Coronerís Office has identified one of two women who were killed in a Laughlin casino Wednesday after a man drove his car through the front entrance as 81-year-old Helen Hindmand of Lincoln, Neb.
The coronerís office said Hindmand died of multiple blunt force injuries as a result of the crash.
Metro Police said the man drove a 2007 Pontiac Vibe at a high rate of speed into the front doors of the Edgewater Hotel & Casino, 2020 South Casino Drive, shortly before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. The car struck nine people inside the casino, killing two and injuring seven.
Officers arrested Walter McGie, 70, of Kelso, Wash., after the crash and charged him with two counts of felony reckless driving causing death. He was released late Wednesday from the local police lockup in Laughlin on $6,000 bail and scheduled for arraignment March 11 in Laughlin Justice Court.
Each charge carries a possible sentence of probation or one to six years in state prison.
The Clark County Coronerís Office hasn't released the identity of the other woman, but police said they were both playing slot machines at the time of the crash.
Police said that alcohol and drugs didn't appear to be a factor in the crash.
A daughter of McGie says she's stunned to hear her father was driving the speeding vehicle.
Laura White of Portland, Ore., said Thursday that her father, Walter Melvin McGie Jr., is friendly and outgoing, and must be devastated to have been involved in the crash.
Police Detective William Redfairn says McGie told him he doesn't remember the crash.
Redfairn says a certified mechanic will check the 2007 Pontiac Vibe for mechanical problems.
