Where are you getting this "hundreds of deaths" number?? Only 19 deaths so far have been officially attributed to unintended acceleration and most of those were concluded to be stuck floor mats (including the investigation into the Santee crash in August). While there may be some electonic glitch that has caused a few instances, the chances of this happeneing to the average Toyota owner is lower than that of getting struck by lightning....
