Snow Blower Sunday

I just spent about 4 hours clearing the snow off my driveway with my snow blower. I only have a single stage snow blower, so that is why it took so long. I live at the end of a cul de sac, which is great. But the one down side is when the local snow plows come through, the snow accumulates at the end of the cul de sac. So, my mailbox and front of my driveway where literally buried. I also have an uncovered deck, and I cleared off about one third of it. I am tired now, time for a one hour nap, then I will have dinner. Later.

Shame on Toyota

My 2010 Pontiac Vibe that I bought this past September is part of the Toyota recall that has been in the news. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has more info here. Yes, I have a Pontiac Vibe, but is it essentially the same as a Toyota Matrix. I am disappointed in Toyota. It took them too long for them to admit there was a problem. Even though Toyota has announced a fix, the NHTSA is looking at the Electronic Throttle Control System to see if this may be the real problem. Toyota's fix is a physical part, and does not admit any electronic failure. This could be bad if it truly is a electronic problem. I still have my old 2003 Vibe, which I am driving now since it is winter. So, I am waiting to receive something official from Pontiac about when I can bring my vehicle in. I am also very curious to see if the problem is electronics and not a physical part.
